Giving this "My Recipe Magic" a try. You can upload your own recipes, link back to your blog and maybe even make some additional cash if people download your recipe. We'll see how it goes :) so this is just a test run --- spur of the moment so I don't have pictures. Next time!
It also has cool features that you can plan menus, make your own cookbook, check out nutritional value of your meals and so much more. I'm kinda excited about it! Link to it here.
First recipe - just a simple side dish that actually the whole family likes --- even my non-veggie eating 3 year old son!
Sweet and Savory Baked Sweet Potatoes
Cubed sweet potatoes with just enough of the "sweet" with spices to balance out the rest. Perfect addition to any meal --- and kids love them too! Promise!
Ingredients:2 Large or 3 Small Sweet Potatoes - peeled
2 tbsp olive oil
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil Pam for baking
*2 tbsp honey - optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut sweet potatoes into approximately 1 inch cubes. (They don't have to be perfect but you do want them to be close to the same size for equal cooking time)
Using medium size bowl, mix sweet potatoes with your olive oil and cinnamon. (I usually dig in with my hands to make sure it's evenly coated)
Place cubes on baking sheet covered with aluminum foil for easy clean up (coat foil in Pam spray first). Make sure they are evenly dispersed and have enough room to "breathe"
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste --- in my opinion, the more the better but up to you :)
Bake at 350 for approx 15-20 minutes. Once you can shake them loose from the pan, they are ready to flip with large spatula. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until starting to brown and get crispy on outside but still soft on inside.
*Side note: sometimes I will drizzle honey at the end of the cooking time. Too early and I find it burns pretty quickly.
Great side dish, especially for pork, chicken, or turkey in the fall.
