The American Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Are you ready to stuff your self full of delicious food. We had a delicious meal of ours, sadly I didn’t think to take a picture of my dinner plate… so I’m stuff with a picture of hubby’s… he covers his vegetables in ranch.
Halloween is over, our children a running around with sugar in their veins instead of blood. But, since my daughters know every piece of candy and chocolate in their bags, I’m still needing something sweet.
These desserts are perfect for the rest of us. Those without access to Halloween treat bags.

I have finally made the perfect homemade sweet potato fries! I’m excited. I love sweet potato all cut up, baked with a little spice to it. Sweet potato is the healthiest, cooked vegetable that my whole family likes.
Homemade Baked Sweet Potato Fries

My mother-in-law bought us a French Fry press, and despite my occasional inability to get a sweet potato through it without the help of my husband, I love it! Perfect cuts causing even cooking as they are all the same size.
With all the fries in a bowl, I drizzle just enough EVOO over then to coat them… barely, I go as light as possible. Then I choose our favorite spices to mix in. 1 – 1 1/2 tsp of chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. If you don’t want to use onion powder, you can dice up half a small onion.
The trick is to not crowd your baking sheet. I use two sheets, spread the potato out thin. Bake at 425 for about 20-25. Flipping then half way through. We bake ours till they are crispy, but not burnt. (We have a child that won’t eat anything that looks like it could be burnt.)
Edit to add: We bought one of these baskets for baking french fries in and it’s great. The crisp a lot better, and cook faster in it.
