You know, how sometimes you feel blue? Well I felt orange the other day. Yes, I know, this doesn't make any sense. What does "feeling orange" even means? Truth is I have no idea what to say here. In a way, It doesn't make any sense to me neither, but in another somehow it does. I swear to god I didn't use any drugs.
Anyway, feeling orange lead me to hearing the little voice in my head telling me this: "you have to bake sweet potatoes" (By the way, the little voice in my head speaks english with a perfect accent.) This potatoes are so sweet (I wonder why we call them sweet potatoes? :p) and flavorful. I love them. This recipe is based on this blog recipe. It's so sunny, fresh, healthy and wonderfully tasty. Do not have doubts, go get some sweet potatoes and try it now. I said now. I know you are still reading this. Go! Go! Go!
