Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Hope you all are doing well! We had a great time on our trip and brought back good memories and some wonderful pictures.The first half, we spent in Disney, going around the parks.The next half, we went on an air boat ride (inspired after CSI:Miami:D:) and we drove all the way to Key west, the southern most point in the continental US.THAT was one beautiful and an unforgettable drive.The theme parks were exhausting given how we had to run around and stand in lines.But the drive to Keys and our stay there was fantastic.
I don't have to elaborate on Disney.All of you would have visited by now.This was my first there!
If I were to mention in a few words- its Rides, Characters & Castles, and fireworks!
Key West (also known as Conch Republic), on the other hand, I can run out of words to describe the beauty of that place.There is only 1 and only road that goes in and out of that place.
It is about 6 1/2 hr drive from Orlando.Once you hit Route 1, you can see turquoise and cobalt blue colored ocean on either side of the road.And NO! I am not exaggerating when I say Turquoise and Cobalt blue colors.It is truly the case..
Key West is popular for its Sunrise and Sunset, weather permitting of course.The place is also known for some famous people's houses like Truman and Hemingway. You can see the only living coral reef in US from a glass boat.OR you can just relax on the beach and watch sun go down!Looks like I am yapping too much!I will post the pics soon...

Also, my blog is acting out on me.I have no idea why the comments section is not working properly.While I look into it, if any of you have any problems, please email me at tastytouchblog@gmail.com.I know, all you guys have posted so many dishes/posts and I know I have some catching up to do!In the mean time, here is a simple dish that you can snack on or eat as a side.

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 tbsp Orange Juice (Preferably with some pulp)
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
Pinch of Cinnamon

  • Preheat the oven to 450F.
  • Spray a baking dish with a non stick spray.
  • Spread the potatoes in a single layer
  • Drizzle with Olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  • Combine all of them with hands, clean hands!!He he he!
  • Bake in the oven for about 28-30 min or until the potatoes are tender.
For the glaze
  • Mix Orange juice and maple syrup.
  • Stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon
  • Pour the glaze on the potatoes and bake for an additional 8 minutes.

Shri
