Lunch @ 226 - Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Behold. My new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes. Not that there is a bad way. Bake potato at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, until adequately squishy. I prick mine with a fork. Slice it open and pinch ends to create a well. Add a drizzle of olive oil, salt, sour cream, chili powder and a squeeze of lime. You can also rub the skin with chili powder before the bake. Some finely chopped red onion and cilantro leaves were added after the photo. It was awesome. Enjoy. P.S. Through some persistence, I learned how to make pictures bigger! Hells yeah.
Happy customers, all around.


  1. Yay! I've been stalking your blog... glad to see a new post! And I love the new big pictures! And the recipe, of course. So... how do you take such good pictures of food? Mine always turn out looking not so yum.

  2. i'm glad someone is stalking! you inspired me to give my blog a facelift, though technology is so not my strong suit. i spent the better part of the day trying to figure out one code to make my pictures bigger. major headache, and one tiny step. yours looks so professional.

    i take my food pics with my 50mm/1.4 lens. i usually set the plate next to a window, for some good light and then take really tight images. i try but i still think they look grody, so thanks for the compliment.

  3. Yum!! I have 2 sweet potatoes right now - I think I might be having this very soon :)

  4. one of my favorite lunches these days. hope you like it.
