Roasted Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Yummy sweet potatoes roasted with a maple syrup/cinnamon coating which are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.

Spicy Hunan Potatoes

How do you say “yum” in Chinese. These potatoes were perfectly seasoned and I could not get enough of them! Hunan food is known to be spicy and from the few dishes I have made so far I certainly agree. But like any recipe you can make it to your taste. Hunan is located in the … Continue reading
