I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
Since discovering sweet potato fries, I've become a bit obsessed with them. If they are ever offered at a restaurant, I have to order them, it's a compulsion, I don't have a choice.
A few months ago, I went to a fun and different restaurant in New Hampshire called The Friendly Toast. They had a great menu, full of items that would satisfy the carnivore and vegan alike. But the first thing that caught my eye was their sweet potato fries glazed in a spicy honey. They were to die for! I took the majority of my sandwich home in a box, but there was not a fry to speak of by the time I was done with them.
A few weeks later I did my best to recreate them. I'll never make sweet potato fries as good as restaurants can, simply because I can't bring myself to fry them. However, the honey glaze was just as good. A sprinkle of cayenne in about two tablespoons of honey, and you have yourself a different and delicious way to eat sweet potatoes. Give it a try! Sweet Potato Fries with Honey-Cayenne Glaze
