Well folks, Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s the time of year when we think about tried and true family recipes; the dish that everybody requests year after year because it is so good! The most requested side dish in my family is, hands down, my mom’s Yam Bake. What makes it so scrumptious is the crumb topping sprinkled on top of a mixture of yams and whole-berry cranberry sauce, topped off with toasted marshmallows. It is the perfect combination of sweet, tart, crunchy and soft. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Bon appetit!
