Sweet potato fries are simply amazing. But so is chai. And also cinnamon rolls. HOW EVER WILL YOU DECIDE? As you can plainly see, now you don't have to. Make sure you have friends to share these with though, or you will likely eat the entire addicting batch.
My entire life until a few days ago, I've bought Alexia sweet potato fries in the frozen section at Sprouts. They take a few minutes in the oven, and boom...done! And my whole life until now I actually thought that was easier than making them myself. Of course, I'd never tried to make them from scratch, though.
You know those foods that you're like....it would take me foreeeever to make, I couldn't possibly. I've done this with spaghetti squash, kale chips, beets, home made spice mixes (like chai *cough, cough*) coconut whipped cream....okay, that one's a little difficult. But the point is, somehow I get this idea in my head that something is going to be too difficult or time consuming and let that dominate my actions for YEARS sometimes. If you've had these same fears about making sweet potato fries, it's time to put that nonsense to bed and enjoy your new independence!
"But, Brittany. Where have you been? I didn't see your usual Tuesday recipe last week." Ah, yes. You may have noticed I went a little AWOL as the stresses of life started catching up to me! And when all else fails, I travel, this time recharging my gluten-free batteries in Texas! Mostly Houston to visit my family and kick some serious tail in International Rum, but also exploring Austin as my potential new city of residence after graduation. Most importantly, I had the fortuitous opportunity to meet one of my favorite vegan bloggers, Michelle, the mastermind behind Boards and Knives. I loved hearing her story, gabbing about blog-related woes and triumphs, and getting a behind-the-scenes pass in the life of a fellow blogger. We are both very excited to collaborate on a recipe in the very near future, so stay tuned!
