I was attempting to be punny by using the word "yammy" instead of "yummy" and saying the sunshine was "sizzling." It was a valiant effort, although admittedly mediocre. 


It's that time of year again when the grill comes out, the burgers get scorched, and so does my skin. I was feeling like sweet potatoes, and what better way to spend my free-time than by baking up some sweet potato fries?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!!?!?!!? [The number of exclamation points and question marks behind that question indicates that the answer is nothing.\

So how does one make sweet potato fries? Well thanks for asking, I will tell you
STEP ONE. Set that oven of yours to 450 degrees fahrenheit. 

STEP TWO. Take two small sweet potatoes (or one large) and slice them up to be about 1/2 an inch to 3/4 an inch thick. This makes enough for 3-4 people as a side, or one mildly hungry teenage boy (aka me).

STEP THREE. Place all the slices in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and if you're really feeling wild, garlic salt. Mix it all up until they're each equally coated.

STEP FOUR. Space out your fries evenly on cookie sheets.
STEP FIVE. Bake the fries on one side for about 12 minutes, and then take them out of the oven and listen to hear the olive oil sizzling (wink) before carefully flipping them all over. Place them back in the oven for about 10 minutes.
I yam so happy that I got to share this recipe with you. Now go buy yourself some yams.
