A college student trying out the whole "cooking" thing.

It’s Not Even Fry-day (Baked Sweet Potato Fries)

Hello, we’re going to return to a common theme here: vegetables and ovens. This is an easy combo, and after yesterday’s catastrophe, I felt I needed a confidence boost. So baked sweet potato fries was requested by my family, so baked sweet potato fries it is.

I felt that, because I was aiming towards a more healthy lifestyle, I didn’t want to fry them, although baking the fries in an oven takes a lot more time.

If I can do this, you can. Go. Do this now.

My family gobbled. these fries. up. I was ecstatic - success! Oh, how I wish I had a kitchen or oven in my dorm room so I could refine my fry technique. :(

TIPS:

Use. those. herbs. Oregano? Sure. Rosemary? Yeah. A smidge of garlic? Join the party! Tastebuds come alive when you play with spices, turns out. I used all the herbs I mentioned. It was a party.

I would have added extra pepper. Alternatively, can you imagine this dish with roasted red bell peppers? I think I’m drooling.

Thanks for reading. Has anyone told you that you’re awesome today? You are. Just sayin’. xx - Cynthia
