Hello Again (: Is it too soon to post another recipe? 

As Caera mentioned earlier, we had a group of our friends over for dinner last night and made an assortment of tapas and desserts for everyone to try. We catered to everyones food likes, dislikes and allergies and it turned out very well! One of my favorite dishes we made last night were sweet potato chips. 

Currently--I think I can speak for both Caera and I--we have a sweet potato addiction. Let me explain, the Japanese sweet potatoes are much different than the ones you can find in America. The color is a pale yellow whereas the US ones are bright like yams. Their name doesn't do the potato justice because it isn't sweet at all. In fact, it has a much milder taste that is more similar to a normal potato rather than a yam. I have cooked sweet potatoes in a numerous amount of ways like chips, wedge-fries, and just plain baked like a baked potato.

I was amazed that these chips turned out so well. When I tried to make them earlier they weren't crispy and the bottom was burned. I guess you really have to get the temperature right in order for them to be cooked to perfection. Anyways, if you have a break--20 minutes is all you need--then you can make a healthy and delicious snack! 

As for the dip, it is basically guacamole without the onions, or whatever goes into guacamole. I personally am not a huge fan of avocados so I ate my chips plain, but according to the crowd they loved it!
