I made this last night, and it was so yummy. I basically used a traditional sweet potato pie recipe, but substituted orange yams for purple sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes are ridiculously nutritious.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rasheda for a couple years, so I knew about the highs and lows of her singlehood. She was featured as a “Goddess of the Week” back in the day, remember? I’m seriously tickled that she found her rainbeau, and that she chose to share her story with us.
Whether the show flops or not (although I pray it’s not) having another beautiful, VISIBLY BLACK woman as the star and centerpiece on a prime time show is a SMASHING success. It’s for that reason, I’m intrigued, and will probably watch it unless I fall into a white wine coma after The Hubster’s lasagna.
They were the first couple of 2013 to get married in Cook County, getting their license around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and tying the knot less than an hour later.

Did you KNOW there were Iranians of African decent?
This is a tasty filling meal that will satisfy everyone at your dinner table! Creamy cheesy potatoes, fried fish, and a cold beer what more could anyone want?
Happy 2013 Everyone! I didn’t make any resolutions for the New Year because I’m still working on the ones I made last year, but I am feeling a renewed energy for my love quest.
I was reading an interracial dating forum a couple days ago with the headline topic, “Romantic Resolutions.” The writer was basically asking why the readers might do differently in 2013 to get the love they want. Most of the responders said the typical stuff–go out more, dump time-wasting losers, lose weight to increase prospects. But there was one woman who boldly wrote, “I’MA GIT ME A WHITE MAN!”
Yet another swirling power couple…
A reader wrote in with a question that left me scratching my head, so I brought in the heavy artillery!
Man deliberately infects a single mother with HIV.
Mellody chose well, and will marry whom she deems as the best man for the job. Not the best black man, but the best man.
Check out the kiss that SHOCKED the country!
If we look at the different phrases used to describe the act of bearing and raising children there is a telltale clue to the difference in the way in which Blacks view parenthood versus other groups.
Jamila makes a very good case for black women to embrace feminism…
Taking a break from the ratchetness of the KimYe spawn, I’m tickled to announce that our very own Eugenia is expecting a child with her HUSBAND. You may recall that Eugenia announced that she and her other half were going to try to conceive, but combined with her diabetes, high blood pressure and age, she faced some potential health challenges. But she just announced on New Year’s Day that she’ll be expecting her little bundle of joy come September.
So, you may have missed it amongst the Kim K. pregnancy news and New Year’s celebrations but we just averted the fiscal cliff crisis. Happy New Year!
I heard you were knocked up a couple days ago when your boo of only eight months, Kanye West, announced that his 5,000+ audience pay homage to his “baby mama.” I’m assuming he gave that title to you, as you are the carrier of the Kanye spawn…
Instead of depicting black women as desperate and mulish, running after men and begging for scraps, how about showing positive depictions of happy, married stay-at-home mom/work-from-home hybrids?
