One of my favorite things ever are homemade sweet potato fries.
I love the sweet and salty mixture!!
I would like to share my own version of sweet potato fries with you!!

:: Sweet Potatoes ::
:: Olive Oil ::
:: Cinnamon ::
:: Salt ::
:: Brown Sugar ::

Set the oven to 400°.  Thinly slice as many sweet potatoes as you need.  Throw them in a bowl.  Drizzle olive oil on them and mix until they are coated evenly.  Put the sliced potatoes on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle cinnamon over the fries.  Bake for about 30-45 min or until tender.  A bit longer if you like them crispy.  Once out of the oven, put them on a plate and sprinkle generously with brown sugar.  Add a dash of salt for taste.

These sweet potato fries always come out perfect and wonderfully delicious!!
They basically melt in your mouth!!  My entire family loves them!!

There is something you should know about me.  I am a pretty good cook and an excellent baker…however, I’m not great at recipes.  I rarely measure anything and I never follow a recipe to it’s exactness.  In my opinion, recipes are just wonderful ideas in which you should always improvise!!  If I could sum up my cooking, it would be:  Get your basic idea and then use at least 4 or 5 different recipes and make it one!!  Yep, that’s about it!!!

I do make a mean egg salad sandwich.


Doesn’t it look yummy?!?

Again, I never measure anything, so I had to improvise for you.

CURRY EGG SALAD
:: 2 boiled eggs ::
:: a dollop of mayo ::
:: a squeeze of mustard ::
:: 2 dashes of red wine vinegar ::
:: a smidge of pickle juice ::
:: 1 tsp-ish of sugar {to cut the vinegar} ::
:: salt and pepper to taste ::
:: 3 sprinkles of curry ::
* yields 1 *

My secret to perfect boiled eggs is:  let them boil 8 min then cool.  I’m sure everyone knows that though!!  Peel the shell off the eggs.  Cut eggs into pieces and put in a bowl.  Mix all the ingredients together.  Serve on toasted bread with lettuce, tomato and pickle on the side.

Okay, so, I’m not supposed to eat bread…LAME.
I actually gave the bread to my dog and ate it wrapped up in the lettuce!!
Which, it’s good like that too!!

Egg salad is also good as a dip with crackers or chips!!

{I’m the only one in the house that likes curry, so I have to add it just to mine!}
