Thanksgiving: Yams

Since I moved to New York, I don’t always get to spend the holidays with my side of the family. I like bringing side dishes that my mom and grandma used to make so that it still feels like the holiday meals that I’m use to. This is the yam recipe that my mom makes. It’s decadent and delicious and VERY easy.
