"Smell brings to mind... a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town. Smells detonate softly in our memory like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years." -Diane Ackerman, Writer

Everybody uses the term sweet potato, but most of what we are actually eating are yams. True sweet potatoes might not make as good a version of this - they don't have the silky, sweet, and creamy texture that yams do when cooked.
