Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Making Roasted Sweet Potatoes is super easy! These babies are better than French fries and are great as a snack, side dish or salad topping!

Well aren't we lucky ducks this year! We were blessed with a long and unseasonably warm fall and now in February we are experiencing spring. My boys have been wearing shorts and riding their bikes comfortably outside. Whaaaat?! My recipe creations have been all over the place lately. I don't know whether to get out popsicles or hot chocolate!

Yesterday I decided to make both winter and summer food at the same time! Roasted Sweet Potatoes scream winter, but what happens when...oh wait, you'll have to come back to see what exactly I did with these delicious little potatoes.

These babies are soooo good. This is one of those super simple recipes that creates a versatile and mouth-wateringly yummy snack. Or salad topping. Or side dish. You need these in your life! Ok, now go outside and enjoy this weather before it snows! Thanks for being here.
