Herb Roasted Sweet Potatoes

"Holidays are coming and here is yet another sweet potato recipe. The thyme, garlic and red pepper gives great flavor to the sweet potatoes. Instead of olive oil try using Pam or No Oil. Just spray the slices on both sides then shake them in the zip lock bag with the herbs. Use Yams if you prefer."

    Oh Bergy, these turned out so good! I love sweet potatoes, and the herbs were great! I halved the recipe, just to make sure I liked it! Delicious!

    I wish I could rate this more than 5 stars! These sweet potatoes were incredible! I was a little hesitant, thinking they may be dry and too herb-tasting. I was wrong! These have an incredible flavor, with a slight crust around the outside and tender, moist potato on the inside. I could eat these cold! I used fresh thyme from my herb garden, which made a difference, so use it if you have it! You must try this recipe - it's incredible!

    Hubby & I aren’t lovers of ‘candied’ yams/sweet potatoes but this was wonderful! Added about half of a quartered onion & cut back a bit on the crushed red pepper. Will definitely make sweet potatoes this way again. YUMMO!

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging. Here are a few of my photos <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" allowNetworking="all" allowFullscreen="true" src="http://w615.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w615.photobucket.com/albums/tt233/Bergylicious/ABM slideshow/d95d7a18.pbw" height="360" width="480">
