Sonoran Desert Yams!

At least once during the year I bake my family recipe yam casserole, one of my favorite family comfort foods that my mother brought to the table during the holidays.

Through the years I have changed the ingredients to fit my healthier adult lifestyle and am sharing this recipe with you in hope it ends up on your table at least once a year to share with family and friends.
