Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

We had turkey at my husband's relative's house and it was cozy. I made a dish that is traditional in my family. Candied sweet potatoes. You boil yams until a knife can slide through, then rinse them under cold water and peel off the skin. Slice them either lengthwise or in circles and lay them in a baking dish that is sprayed at the bottom with PAM. Then on top of the yams, you squirt pancake syrup all over (as desired) and then put pats of butter all over. I then sprinkle cinnamon all over the yams as well. Finally you (this is optional) open a can of Coca-Cola and pour that all over the yams because this will help make a "syrupy glaze" in the pan. Bake them at 375 degrees until desired darkness. I like the edges crispy and a little burnt. It sounds like a sickeningly sweet recipe but trust me, it is not and some of the ingredients can be substituted for low fat or sugar free versions.
