Here's the Yam Puffs recipe that I promised to post up earlier; along with the various pictures of Yams, sweet potatoes, etc. Everyone liked this recipe so much that there was a "guessing game" going on that night- to guess all the ingredients! LOL. *_* Thanks for the compliment, Andy and Han- that this is one of the best dishes I've made! & Danny for saying that its "restaurant-like!". *grin* ;) Anyways, anything "fried" and crispy is always nice, right!?
