My passion for creating good food began when I saw what a rreeeaaallly good meal could do for a person.

I’ve seen it change an awful, no good very bad day into something memorable, special and noteworthy.

I’ve seen it get rid of the grumpies on a stressful afternoon.

About ten years ago our family started a Family Friday Night packed with games, good fun and treats!

Baked Spicy Sweet Potato Fries are PERFECT for Family Game Night!

We’ve invited friends over to join in on our fun!

And you can’t invite friends over for fun without serving good food.

Like really good food.

That’s why these spicy baked potatoes are a no brainer for game night with friends!

They’re not your typical homemade fries.

No ma’am.

We’ve added the perfect blend of spices to take these to the next level.

seasonings for baked spicy sweet potato fries

Think: sweet and spicy.

Perfectly salted, but perfectly sweetened.

And just enough heat to make you want seconds and even thirds!

But if you come over for some, we wont count how many servings you chow down..ha!

Did I mention these fries are also drizzled in olive oil?

That helps them bake up beautifully…and olive oil always makes potatoes taste better.

Can I get a witness?

But I don’t just serve our friends and family sweet potato fries on game night.

I need an entire meal to serve!

But sometimes (Ok, ok….VERY often) I need a super quick recipe.

And it has to taste good!

Something I can easily heat up and serve.

Oh, it should also be a healthier choice than the local, greasy fast food chain.
