Your hands will surely be messy after indulging in these delicious Sweet Potato Fries, combined with this Honey Macadamia Nut Glaze, your ‘Sweet, Salty and Crunchy’ cravings will be ultimately satisfied.
Ingredients for the Fries
2 Organic Sweet Potatoes or Yams
2 Tablespoons Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1-1 1/2 teaspoons coarse Sea Salt
1/4 Cup Local Honey
1 Tablespoon Mayonaise
1 Tablespoon Macadamia Nuts, chopped
Rinse the potatoes well then pat dry with a towel. Slice them into thin ‘French Fry’ slices. Toss them with the olive oil, sea salt and a pinch a fresh ground pepper. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes, flipping them every 10 minutes. (Watch them carefully, sweet potatoes contain a lot of sugar and can burn easily.)
For the Glaze, combine the honey, mayonnaise and chopped macadamia buts and whisk together until the glaze has been emulsified.
Top the hot sweet potato fries with the gorgeous glaze and a pinch more of sea salt and pepper.
Enjoy these gorgeous fries to accompany any Burger or just by themselves as a delicious snack

The crunch of a Graham Cracker takes me back to summer time campfires, when I would intentionally set my marshmallow on fire so it would be burnt to the crisp! Smush it between to heavenly Graham Crackers and I was set!… Until I was ready for “S’more!” If you are not making S’mores and you are having a gathering, you can easily go a little more gourmet and add these to your festive fondue. Or simply satisfy that old fashion Graham Cracker Craving.
1 1/2 cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 cup Organic All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup scant Organic Evaporated Cane Juice
1 T Organic Molasses
1 t Baking Powder (Aluminum Free)
1/2 t Baking Soda
1/2 t fine Sea Salt
1/2 – 1 t Cinnamon
1 stick Organic Sweet Cream Butter
4 T Local Honey
1/4 cup Cold Water
1 t Vanilla Extract
Combine first the dry ingredients, mix well using a whisk. Then add in all of the wet ingredients. Continue mixing until you can form a dough ball. Then place the ball between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out into a disk, not too thin. Chill for approximately 30-45 minutes in the refrigerator. After it has been chilled, roll out the dough to the approximate thickness that you want your crackers to be.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the dough into about 2 inch rectangles or circles cut out with a cookie cutter. Place on your baking sheet and with a fork press holes in the dough. Bake for 18-22 minutes depending how thin or thick your dough is.
When they are ready they will be gorgeously golden brown.
