Drawing Winner, Pioneer Yams and a Baby

tinI have a lot to share with you! What a day – thanks to all of you who showed up to blog and enter the drawing. I have all of your names in the fishbowl.

And the winner of the Cowboys of the Silver Screen DVD set is….



Martha, please post asap me at: SaintJohn@aol.com with your address.

You guys were so much fun today. Judy generously shared her family recipe:


Judy’s Pioneer Yam Casserole

serves 8 – 10
4 c cooked sweet potatoes (or 2 29oz cans/no syrup sweet potatoes)
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter (softened)
1 c milk
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla

I usually use a little more yams and mash them a bit before mixing with other ingredients.
Beat together casserole ingredients until completely mixed, but not smooth.

Pour into 9 x 14” buttered baking pan.
1 c brown sugar
1/3 c flour
1/4 c butter (softened)
1 c pecans
1 c coconut (optional)
Cut butter, flour and brown sugar together with 2 knives or pastry blender until crumbly.
Spread on top of casserole.  Sprinkle with pecans and coconut.
Bake at 300 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes.
Some members of my family think this is a bit too sweet so I usually leave the topping off about a 1/4 of the casserole so they just eat the sweet potatoes.

And last, but not least, Flip sent this precious first birthday photo of her daughter and her cake.


(That’s how I feel about chocolate, too.)

  1. Congratulations, Martha. Cute picture. Amazing the chocolate pictures we get with little ones.

  2. Congrats Martha. LOL on the pic!

    I’ll have to check if daughter can change those yams to splenda instead of the sugar. I used to love eating those!

  3. Yeah! A late present for my DH birthday last week! THANK YOU! I’ll pass him the recipe too! What a great picture! I’m sending you my addy.
