Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes

I don’t really have much to say . . . except these Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes are so good. Heck, plain ol’ sweet potatoes are so good, I would eat them straight out of the ground. Psych! But still. I love sweet potatoes for 500 different reasons. Full of flavor. Healthy. Natural energy. Versatile. Oh, and pretty. They’re so pretty. And the first time I ever tried sweet potato fries, I was watching Pitch Perfect inย one of those fancy theaters with wine, reclining chairs, blankets, bucket-less popcorn, and an amazing menu of very uppity foods. Think about that, though. My first experience with sweet potato fries was watching one of the funniest movies ever, snuggled in a blanket, drinking wine, next to my hub. What’s not to love?Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogRosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogI have always loved goat cheese too, so Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes were a must for me. Contrary to popular opinion, or first impression (of the name, mostly), goat cheese is super creamy and delicious and really adds a ton of POW to most dishes, including salads , fruits, veggies, even meats. Like I said, versatile. Then, you add some potatoes, a few grapes and a fancy herb like rosemary, and this is what happens . . . this beautiful mess!Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogFavorite tools when making Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes:

It’s so cute in a rustic-chic or country-chic kitchen. Also, that copper potato steamer is pretty much my dream come true.

    Live and learn. As old as I am, I did not know you could eat sweet potato skins. Very interesting. I will have that experience today. You teach me so much. Bless you:)

      Darlene, thank you so much for the kind words again. I always look forward to your comments ๐Ÿ™‚ Sweet potatoes are my favorite carb and their skins are the most nutritious part. Of course it requires lots of scrubbing and cleaning just as you would any other potato, but it is so worth it ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s a yummy one!

    When you are thinking of something different, how about biscotti? I crave a crunch.
