Among the groceries that my mom gave me the other day were eight sweet potatoes. EIGHT! I decided that instead of “wasting” them by simply microwaving them and adding butter, I would use at least a few of them to make something I’ve never made before.
Right away I knew I would be making sweet potato fries. The level of excitement that I reach when I go to a restaurant and see sweet potato fries on the menu is RIDICULOUS! I also knew I’d be making sweet potato chips (time to put all of my Apple Chip-making experience to use!).
I headed to the internet in search of some other cool sweet potato recipes, and I was not disappointed. I got all of these recipes from Health.com, WomensHealthMag.com, and SouthernLiving.com. Some of them will need to be “healthified” a little bit – especially the desserts! But I WILL be making these recipes sometime in the next two weeks.
And here we go:
4. Sweet Potato and Spinach Quesadillas
8. Sweet Potato-Pecan Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting
9. Sweet Potato Pie with Marshmallow Meringue
10. Ginger-Sweet Potato Cheesecake
How good does the sweet potato casserole look?! These all sound amazing 🙂
Sweet potatoe fries and chips are so delicious and easy to make. Especially with a little apple butter…yumm
We love sweet potatoes – they look like great dishes! Now I want to make them!
