I rarely try new recipes because I just don’t enjoy cooking that much. I like to stick to what I know, which are super easy recipes with very few ingredients. So, when I happened upon this crispy sweet potato fries recipe, I was a little excited. I love sweet potatoes, I love French fries, and all I needed was a little oil and corn starch!

So, I cut my sweet potatoes (leaving the skins on…because it’s healthy, right?), and soaked them in water.
Then, I put corn starch in a plastic bag, added the potatoes, shook them up, and put them on a non stick pan.
I drizzled olive oil on them, tossed them about, and cooked for 15 minutes on one side, and about 8 on the other. This is what I came up with:
They actually don’t look bad, but they didn’t taste great. I guess I didn’t cut the fries small enough, used way too much corn starch, and not quite enough oil. If I get the proportions just right, I think they would be delicious! Hopefully Curtis will give me a second chance before he loses all hope in my cooking skills. That is…once he recovers from the dry mouth caused by all that corn starch!
