I'm only posting this because I have a craving for them :P

Takes maybe 30 minutes

1 1/2 pounds (2 to 3 medium) sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper

*Preheat oven to 425°. Cut each potato lengthwise into 8 wedges; halve long wedges crosswise.

*On a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper, toss potatoes with oil, sugar, chili powder, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper, until coated. Arrange wedges, cut sides down.

*Roast potatoes until browned and tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add some more salt, if you like.

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes (and omelet...)

dinner last night-

normally i realllllly don't like gluten free bread. sick. but if you DROWN it in olive oil, and put enough freshly-grated parmesan and garlic, bake for 10 minutes, it's pretty awesome. i used the Ener-G tapioca loaf 'cause i didn't want to defrost anything.


9 or 10 small red potatoes (clean, leave the skin on)
2/3 cup olive oil
2 Tbs rosemary
Salt & Pepper to taste

quarter the potatoes and toss with the rest of the ingredients. lay out (single layer) on a baking sheet. cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until tender. set the oven to broil for about 10 minutes so they crisp a little bit. add more salt and pepper to taste.

chop a handful of the leftover potatoes very small and throw in a skillet with a handful of cheese (havarti and cheddar!) and a three eggs. it's a very big omelet. which i ate by myself.

I find myself in the mood for madeleines but I've always been rather dissatisfied with the recipe I have. Does anyone have a decent recipe they've used before that they like?

Cashew Butter

posted by: wanderyng1 in d00m_c00kie

2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup walnut oil
10 ounces (approximately 2 cups) roasted cashews
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place the oil in a microwave-safe container, add the honey and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds. Place the nuts and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse for 5 seconds. Then, while the processor is running, very slowly drizzle in the honey and oil. Process until an emulsion is formed and the mixture is smooth; this will take approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute. If the mixture is too thick and doesn't spread easily, add a little more oil.

2 1/2 teaspoons dried licorice root
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup dried peppermint leaves
1/2 cup raw honey
4 sprigs of fresh mint (optional)

In a large pot bring 6 cups of water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the licorice and cinnamon; lower to a simmer, partially cover the pot, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in peppermint, cover, and steep for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, place a large strainer lined with cheesecloth or a damp paper towel over another pot or bowl. Strain tea, pressing on herbs to extract all liquid. Stir in honey until dissolved and let cool completely, about 1 hour.

Coconut ice cream/smoothie

Well, since we're on a roll, I guess I'll just chime in.

Toss some frozen fruit in the blender. I like blueberries. Strawberries and mango are also nice. Add a dash of vanilla extract, half a scoop of protein powder, and then start pouring in coconut milk. I usually use close to a whole can.


The end result will have the consistency of soft serve ice cream, but only until the fruit thaws. After that, it's more like a smoothie. To get a smoothie from the start, add OJ or milk/yogurt.

Banana-Blueberry Smoothie

Because wanderyng1 started it, and it's Summer, and it is HOT.

Add to a blender:

*1 single serving cup of vanilla yogurt [I used Stonyfield Farm Fat Free, 6oz]

*Then I use the same cup and fill it with frozen blueberries. I just buy them fresh and put the whole container in the freezer, usually when they're buy one get one free.

*Add one small banana. Blend all this on a low speed.

*Add four or five ice cubes. Blend on a higher speed, like chop or pulverize.

* I add a splash of Organic Low-Fat milk and blend until creamy.

Put in a large glass and adorn with a blueberry or two and a colourful straw. DRINK UP.

You can add honey if it isn't sweet enough, I guess. Freaks. :D

Chai Milkshake

I love the chai milkshake from the tea house, so I had to try and figure out the recipe. You'll need:

- Good vanilla ice cream
- Pacific chai
- Milk

I seriously have no idea what the measurements are, but it produces a slightly sweeter version of the chai milkshake they make. Go light on the chai, you can always add more if it's not spicy enough.
