I was never into cooking or being a domestic diva. When I got married I made a few things when I felt like it, but we mostly ate out or ordered something out. After the twins arrived that became nearly impossible! My husband likes to cook now, too. I get tired of the same old meals so I’m testing out some online recipes…with my twist (which usually means I don’t have all the ingredients so I improvise!).

Tonight we had thawed out ground beef so I went on Pinterest in search of something new and easy that all four of us would enjoy. I stumbled upon this

Instead of 1 cup of corn I used a can of mixed veggies and a small can of medium salsa. It turned out pretty tasty…all my boys loved it. I will definitely mix it in the dinner rotation. Don’t judge it by my photos!!

My boys LOVE sweet potatoes. I made sweet potato fries with cinnamon and sugar they loved it!

Preheat oven to 450.
I used 2 sweet potatoes.
Slice into French fries and put in mixing bowl.
1 teaspoon of oil ( or 2 depending on the amount and size of potatoes) cinnamon, and nutmeg ( and sugar if you please)Mix together to coat fries.
Spread on baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes. Flip them over. Bake 15 more minutes.
Then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top to you taste.
Yum!
