Holiday Dishes Redone: Candied Yams

As a child, there was no dish I loved and hated more than candied yams. I expected it on our holiday table, even fantasized about the toasty, gooey marshmallows that covered the slimy, watery yams (which were actually sweet potatoes incorrectly named).

When I became a mother, I included the beautifully loathsome dish in every Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner and nagged my sons and husband to eat the concoction, not just the marshmallows, just as I had been told, too.

A few years ago, I finally figured out that tradition wasn’t repeating the same saccharin-sweet mistakes of our forefathers, and that I could make any food I wanted, as long as it captured the spirit of our celebration. READ MORE

    Fast and Easy Korean Beef Over Rice

    After years of throwing holy water on cooking like it was some vampire coming to kill me, a couple of years ago, I finally got into a cooking groove. I even *GASP* looked forward to it while also starting a food blog, which I’ve since abandoned.

    I discovered two things about cooking. You’ve got to LOVE what your cooking to really love cooking. For me, I loved the challenge of cooking food I thought would be difficult.

    My definition of “difficult” at the time was something beyond microwave nachos, frozen lasagna, and if I really went wild, making the exotic and way out there French toast. Adding bacon on the side made me feel like a goddamn gourmet. Pouring a glass of orange juice to go along with it and… BOOM, I’m a culinary genius. READ MORE
