  1. Hi Joy, My maiden name is Shull. Is your husband by any chance related to the line of Shulls from Broadwater, Nebraska? Just curious! I never see the Shull name. Looking forward to trying your sweet potatoes tonight!!

    1. He is not, but it’s fun to hear of more Shulls! I agree it is an uncommon name. I hope you enjoy the sweet potatoes! Funny enough my husband has a sister named Amy, so her maiden name was Amy Shull!
