Happy Mother’s Day!

My mom’s funny. She has nine children but hates celebrating mother’s day for herself. She refuses to let us cook for her or give her gifts, instead she cooks for us… and we give her gifts anyway.

Mother’s are selfless, they don’t like to be spoiled, but sometimes they really need spoiling.

If I had children though, I’d certainly let them cook me dinner, at least as long as they were making spicy baked sweet potato wedges. And I wouldn’t have to feel guilty because these babies are quick and easy peasy to make. After tossing them in some olive oil, you just sprinkle on some seasonings – a little garlic, salt, and chili powder – and bake them up for about 20 minutes. Bingo! Amazing sweet potato fries straight from the oven – no frier needed.

These look amazing! I popped over to Instagram but don’t see any exciting news (besides those gigantic asparagus haha) – what’s the news??

    Hi Andrea!! Sorry for the confusion – the ginormous asparagus is not the news haha! You probably jumped over before my instagram pic went live but the news is….. TWINS! I’m pregnant, expecting two little babes in October 🙂

YAYYY!!!! Congratulations!!!

We love sweet potatoes and love them as fries as well. Never thought of adding some spice. Great idea.

I am a sweet potato fan. This looks delicious, and I like that it has a little kick.

Do you peel the sweet potatoes before you cut them into wedges? These look awesome!!

    Hi Nikki, I didn’t peel mine I really like the peel on but you could do it without too!

The sweet potato fries look awesome!!! Where do you find sriracha sauce for dipping?

    Hi karen! These are really so easy and so yummy! You can find sriracha sauce in the Asian section of almost any grocery store!

      make your own. any amount of mayo regular or fat-free and add hot sauce of any kind to your taste buds. If it’s too hot just chase it down with a COLD beer, lots of it. Enjoy

These sweet potato wedges were so great. I had bought a couple of sweet potatoes on a whim and needed to find a recipe for them and I found this recipe on Pinterest. So glad I pinned it because these were some of the best potato wedges I’ve ever had. My husband isn’t really a big fan of sweet potatoes unless they are covered in marshmallows (which defeats the purpose of eating them) but he really enjoyed eating these. The dipping sauce was a great addition to the wedges as well.
