Please tell me you’re as obsessed with that Pharell Williams’ song as I am. Please. I can’t even admit to you how many times I listened to it on the plane to and from California. It’s so addicting! And it really does make you happy! I’ve now resorted to googling dance videos of the song performed by other people (Boston University’s and Studiomates’ versions are legit, in case you were wondering).
Also on the list of things currently making me happy? Daaaaaaylight savings. That extra hour of light on Sunday evening was like a breath of fresh air. Throw in the fact that it’s going to be 56° this week and I am one hell of a happy camper. Here’s to a great week!
Smoked Paprika Sweet Potato Fries with Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction
For the Fries:
- One large sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced into long fries
- heaping 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoons corn starch (per large potato)
- olive oil
- 1/3 cup mayo (or 1/3 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream)
- juice of 1/4 of a lime
- 3/4 tsp Sriracha
- 1/4 tsp salt only if using yogurt or sour cream
Preheat your oven to 400°. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place potatoes in a large bowl, sprinkle with corn starch, and toss well to coat. Place potatoes in an even layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and paprika, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping fries 15 minutes in so they crisp on all sides. While the fries cook, mix together the ingredrients for the sauce. Let cool slightly and serve immediately.
