It’s soooo close to fall that I just can’t contain myself…. And I’ve got to cook! And every DIYer needs to take a break to eat, right?!
So it only makes sense that this blog needs recipes…
My first easy peasy recipe: Roasted sweet potatoes!

Seriously, they’re addictive… You can cut ’em up into wedges, slices , squares, whateva!!!
The secret kick is the seasoning… A little spice for your life!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Servings: 1-2

Ingredients:
One large sweet potato, cut into pieces
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons of Celtic sea salt
1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
Black pepper to taste (optional)
Dash of honey (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

Cut up sweet potatoes and put in a large bowl
Throw all ingredients onto sweet potatoes (measurements can be tweaked for taste) and toss with fingers in bowl until potatoes are well coated

Now here’s the great part! Instead of turning the potatoes over halfway through cooking…. Place a rack on top of a cookie sheet so the potatoes roast all the way around and the excess oil drips off! Genius right?! Totally not my original idea!

Bake potatoes in oven for about 20 minutes. When they’re starting to brown a bit on the edges and you can easily prick a fork through them, they’re ready! Let them cool about 10 minutes before snacking!
This might not be your style, but I love these sweet taters with ketchup!
