Lee Ann, do you consider sweet potatoes and yams the same?  I think they
are close enough.

Here'a recipe I like and I'm not big on sweet potatoes.  It comes from
the cookbook, Lean and Luscious and Meatless by Bobbi Hinman and 
Millie Snyder.

>ahead and baked when needed.

Prick sweet potatoes several times with a sharp knife and bake them 45
minutes, or until tender.

spoon, leaving a 
1/4" shell.

cinnamon, and brown sugar.  Mix with a fork until well blended.
