Category: sweet potato


Did you know that when you buy a “yam” it is actually a sweet potato? A jewel sweet potato to be precise. It is very uncommon to find a true yam at your local grocery store. They are native to Africa (among other regions) and have a white, purple or reddish flesh. The USDA started calling the orange sweet potatoes “yams” to avoid confusion with the lighter fleshed variety.

I LOVE brunch.

Although, going out for good brunch in Vancouver usually involves long line ups! Sometimes brunch at home is just easier, healthier and cheaper!

I had the pleasure of having my lovely friend, Lindsay, over for brunch and I wanted to make something special for her, but I didn’t have time to go grocery shopping. So, this recipe stemmed from ingredients I had on hand – the best type of recipe if you ask me!
