      Greetings sistah girl! - I've been meaning to pop over and read some of your hubs. You're always so gracious in your comments that you leave. Thank you for your feedback, and thanks for the above recipe. I love candied yams, so I will definitely have to print this out. I'm on my way to read your Strawberry Pineapple Punch cake hub. Sounds yummy!

      (By the way - both these hubs sound like they would be perfect for the e-How site. You might want to check them out, if you haven't already) ttfn - ta ta for now!
