Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for ways to re-invent the food you eat. Sometimes this is a good thing, other times, it’s not such a good thing. In the case of these Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries, it’s a VERY good thing.

Disclosure: This post is brought to you in partnership with Yellowbird Foods. And just so you know, I only work with brands I love and use in my own home!

Failure or Success?

I love cooking because it’s my creative outlet. I’m always looking to try something new or combine flavors in a different way. It’s fun and for some reason, it makes me really happy. So I just keep doing it! And the funny thing is, even if it’s a total failure, I don’t care! Unlike so many other areas in my life, failure in the kitchen never makes me mad. Instead, it inspires me to try again until I get it right.

Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries.

I’ve been making sweet potato fries for a freaking long time. I could make them with my eyes closed and my hands tied behind my back. Okay, maybe not, but you know what I mean. They’re easy for me. So that meant it was time to mix things up! And there’s no better way than SPICING things up! So I grabbed a bottle of my favorite hot sauce and got to mixing and roasting. And you know what happened? Something REALLY good!
