sweet potato fries

I struggled for a few attempts at getting these fries the way I wanted – crispy, not soggy and sad. I wanted to be able to hold a fry upright and not have it bend over in the middle. I tried multiple types of orange fleshed sweet potatoes, multiple baking methods, and different methods of […]

BBQ season is here, but before you reach for that bottle of Heinz to add to your burger or hot dog let me offer this alternative, homemade ketchup. And to those who want to call me a condiment snob, hear me out; most things are better homemade and ketchup is no exception. Smoky flavors and […]
