Pam’s Yams

One of the best things about getting married is … you guessed it, inheriting another family’s arsenal of tried and true recipes. Wait, that isn’t what you guessed? Well, if you knew the yummy family I married into you would!

I remember one of the first holidays at Dominic’s home after we started dating. Well, I should be honest and say I specifically remember one of the veggie side dishes from that holiday.

It was Pam’s Yams!

Pam’s Yams were aptly named for Dominic’s aunt and I can’t thank her enough for practically turning a vegetable into a dessert. I was in love at first bite. No joke, these yams are my favorite part of Thanksgiving and I always call ahead to make sure they are going to be a part of our meal! I hope you’ll give them a try and add them to your Thanksgiving menu this year! Enjoy!
