I think these sweet potato chips are actually my new favorite food, they are so good! One of our neighbors was coming over for dinner but mom wanted to keep it simple and casual so we made tuna steaks, salad and these little gems. I knew I wanted to make some sort of a sweet potato wedge and the first thing that popped into my head was spicy wedges but I didn’t want to use the old reliable so I thought up this concoction.

We have loads of herbs growing in our garden at the moment and one of my favorite (But it’s so hard to choose a favorite!) is rosemary. It is so fragrant and also such as easy herb to use. It is quite sturdy unlike herbs such as basil or chives so it can be added to the food through a baking process. It gives a gorgeous earthy flavor and pairs perfectly with garlic, as you can see! These wedges are a good accompaniment to pretty much any dish especially a casual BBQ or get together.
