So many of the dishes I cooked this year have special meaning as they were my Mamon's. Rice Dressing and a very tart Lemon Meringue Pie. It is amazing how a taste or a smell can transport us back.
I am trying a new recipe using our Louisiana Satsumas from the backyard. It is a candied yam recipe from one of my ancient treasured cajun cookbooks. (From Momma to Me). It sounded so good, so I'm giving it a shot. Normally I wouldn't try out a new recipe for a holiday, but her recipes are always delicious!
