I hope all of you Americans enjoyed Thanksgiving. Even though we are Canadian, we do have at least one American friend, so we celebrated Thanksgiving for my American friend. A few weeks ago, she introduced me to a side dish known as candied yams, basically yams in syrup topped with marshmallows. I was very curious about this dish that she decided to make for Thanksgiving. I am very impressed on how good it tasted. This is a quick side dish to bake where canned yams are used. If you do have time, you can use yams and cook until soft and follow the recipe.
