Recipes Made Simple: No fuss Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries


As part of my Recipes Made Simple Cooking Guide, one of my favorite sides to use are sweet potatoes.  This recipe is very simple.  All you will need is 1 large sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and cooking spray.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400-degrees
  • Peel potato and cut into fries
  • Spread fries onto a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
  • Evenly coat the fries with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  • Place into the oven and cook until tender usually 15-20 minutes depending on how thick you cut your fries.

Optional: once tender, spray the fries one more time and place in the broiler on low for 2 minutes. This will give the fries a little extra crisp.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.  You can make very simple healthy meals for less than a value meal at McDonald’s.

Buying meat at the market that is getting ready to expire is usually sold at a discounted price.  Buying foods like this, then freezing them allows you to use them when money is short.  Buy fresh veggies and not the steamed bags.  Make your own coffee at home instead of going to Starbucks.

Making small changes in your spending can make a huge difference over time
