I love sweet potato fries but add this homemade ketchup and I have an addiction. These were delicious dipped in the homemade ketchup and I rarely eat ketchup! When I do it’s only on two things and fries isn’t one of them. This ketchup would be incredible as a steak sauce with just a couple of adjustments. It would also be great on meatloaf and many more dishes like pork, steak, and roast beef. The hardest part of this recipe is straining it to make sure you have a silky sauce but other than that it’s simple and tasty. There’s no corn syrup or sugar for sweetness. It is sweet though and that’s because of the raisins. I know that there are a number of recipes on the net for sweet potato fries that have you coat them lightly with cornstarch and oil to get them crispier. They do get crispy, but I can taste the cornstarch. I just sprinkle a bit of olive oil and salt then into the oven for 15- 20 mins at 425 F. It’s a personal preference. You want to make sure that the fries aren’t crowded if you want them crisp. If you crowd them in the pan they’ll steam. I made the fries recipe twice—once with just the olive oil and salt and once with the fries tossed in cornstarch and oil. The photo with the fries in the tin can are the ones that I used the cornstarch on.Adapted from In the Cupboard I can’t wait to try this on meatloaf or a steak or more fries.

I’m a sucker for rich dark chocolate and this chocolate sauce recipe is that and more. It’s such an easy recipe. The hardest part is waiting till this thick luscious sauce cools off.
Yes, I licked the spoons after the shot. And I thoroughly enjoyed the guilty pleasure. The men weren’t home and the chocolate was mine—all mine! We drizzled (ha, some of us ladled) the warm sauce over a cherry and pineapple sundae after dinner. I wish I had photos but the craving for chocolate made our hands incredibly faster digging into this chocolate delight than my hand picking up the camera to take a photo. Oh well, I guess there’s always next time.
If you plan on having a make your own ice cream dessert bar then this recipe has to be on it.
I used Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate baking bar and their semi-sweet chocolate bar.
You could add some of this to your Dulce de leche and make a tasty chocolate caramel sauce.
