Berry Mallow Yam Bake Recipe

Berry Mallow Yam Bake Recipe

My Yam Bake has become a holiday tradition in our family. The blend of cranberries and sweet potatoes in this recipe results in a very pretty appearance—and a unique taste. I grew up on a small Arkansas farm in the foothills of the Ozarks. Both my mother and father are excellent cooks, and I've been cooking since I was a little girl. In fact, my husband teases me that I read cookbooks like some other people read novels!
