Sweet Potato Fries

I have a new quest.  Find a way to make sweet potatoes taste good.  In general, I do not enjoy them.  I'd like to... but I don't.  I'm wondering if it's just because I don't like the dishes they are in with marshmallows (also not a fan), which typically is the way people prepare them, or if they just suck.  I'm hoping it's not the latter. 

Anyway, I made these today:

Cumin-Scented Sweet Potato Wedges (WW recipe)

 1.  Get some sweet potatoes.  Peel them.

 2.  Cut them each into 8 wedges.

 3.  Spray them with EVOO and add some cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.

 4.  Grill them.

5.  Eat them.

I dipped them in light ranch, which is not good, but all we had in our fridge.  Never get light ranch.  If you're going to go for ranch, get the good stuff.  Just sayin'.  I'd say these were pretty good, but nowhere near the best fries ever (in my opinion).  Keep in mind that I'm not sure I even really like sweet potatoes.  I might try this recipe with regular potatoes and see how they are.  :-)  Maybe I'm on another quest, too.  Create the best fries ever.  Hmmm... maybe my quests will even coincide someday. 

Anybody have a good sweet potato recipe? 


  1. Mmm I love sweet potatoes! I like them just baked and then with some butter and cinnamon. But, if you don't like them that probably doesn't sound good to you. I made these sweet potato hash browns for a brunch and everyone liked them..

  2. I have 2 more sitting in my kitchen, so I figure if there's a delicious way to use them I'm for it! :-) I'll have to try just baking them... we'll see what happens!

  3. Sweet potatoes are awesome! I have used a recipe with sliced sweet potatoes and sliced apples, but it was tons of work and I have a feeling if you don't like sweet potatoes in general you wouldn't like. Do you not like marshmellows or do you just not like them on sweet potatoes? I thought Sylvia was the only person on the planet who disliked marshmellows! You two must be related :)

    btw, I hope, one day, to have time to try out some of your yummy recipes. So far only tried the grilled portabella mushrooms, which I LOVED! (Now that I think of it, I should make those again!) Keep the recipes coming!

  4. Tell Sylvie she's not alone! Marshmallows are only good melted in hot chocolate. :-) Or blackened in a S'more.

    Sweet potatoes are growing on me... I think my grill was pretty terrible. I roasted the sweet potato fries the next time and they came out fantastic! You'll have to let me know if you try anything else!


Leave me some love! :-)
