Questions & Replies

  1. how many points is this
  2. I asked the question in the Tweaks dept. Where do you use the 9" X 9" baking pan as the recipe calls for a SHEET to bake on with foil??? Marcy Bringen
  3. I meant next to 'mint sweet's, the white ones used to freshen mouths lol.
  4. Are these real yams or sweet potatoes? I ask because I heard that the US sometimes call sweet potatoes yams. Re Marsh Mallows, are these sweets, found next mini, jelly babies & chocolate or do they come without sugar in the US? (In which case I may be able to find some). If they are sweets, with what would this dish normally be served (mains/sides)? Thanks.


  1. What a TOTAL waste of a recipe. I learned my lesson on this one. The yams were not near done in the time stated. This mistake cost me one side dish on Thanksgiving.


  1. Where in the recipe do you USE the 9" X 9" baking dish? The recipe calls for the baking on a PAN with foil.. ADVISE PLEASE. Marcy Bringen
