Rumor has it that there is a difference between sweet potatoes and yams. But I don't know what it is. And this particular recipe that my wonderful sister in law gave me last year refers to both sweet potatoes and yams. So I'll just let you make an educated guess and enjoy.
This recipe is actually pretty amazing. I'm not a fan of yams, but I really like this recipe. But I am still firmly against canned yams and putting marshmallows on them. That's just so wrong. On the other hand, these sweet potatoes/yams will me making an appearance at our Thanksgiving feast.
