Sorry it's been so long friends!

I'm sorry I've been gone for so long friends, but things went a little crazy at year end. I lost my lovely father who was captured in Alzheimer's Disease for a long time and it happened on the same day that I was having surgery...but my beloved family and friends rallied around me, as only they can do, smoothed out all the wrinkles of my life. God bless them all. Thanks to all for the support.

On to one of my favorite subjects, food since I'm such a foodie...I just finished making this for dinner tonight and I thought since it's we still have winter hanging around, that you might like to make this for dinner one night. I'm making it with ham tonight. If you just give it a try I promise you are going to love it...almost a dessert!


3 Cups cooked, peeled and mashed yams ( 3 or 4 medium)
1/3 C soft butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 C sugar ( I use Splenda)

Mix together like mashed potatoes. This will fit in a 9x13 pan with a thinner layer or an 8x8 with a thicker layer.


1 C. brown sugar ( I use Splenda)
1/3 C soft butter
1/3 C flour
1 C Coconut
1 C chopped pecans

Mix together and crumble over the yams. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Well need I say more...does this not sound like dessert! Give it a try. Enjoy!

I did give it a try...because I was invited over to "Dustye's Kitchen" for dinner last night. And let me say from first hand experience, the yam dish is amazing, delicious.

My heart is always with you my dear friend, as we both look forward to seeing our Dad's in heaven some day...

Dustye, I have missed you and didn't realize you were going through so much. I pray you are doing well. I am so sorry about your loss. I will be praying for you and your family. It's so hard losing a parent. It seems as though life will never be the same. I hope to hear from you. I have been away working on a project that was numbers, numbers, and more numbers. I missed reading the posts and now will be catching up. Take care and know you have friends out here. luv ya, Trish
