I've tried to make baked sweet potato fries multiple times- and each time they end up being a nasty soggy mess. I can't decide whether it was bad recipes or user error...but either way- not delicious.

I decided to give it one more try after seeing my favorite gals at A Beautiful Mess share a recipe I hadn't tried yet! I tweaked the seasoning a bit, and made up a different dip to go with them- but the base recipe was the same- and they turned out absolutely perfect!
sweet potato fries w/ sriracha aioli

What you'll need to make it happen:
For the Fries:
- 2 Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Tbsp CornStarch
- Salt, Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon Cayenne (less if you don't like spicy!)
- 2 Tbsp Canola Oil

For the Sriracha Dip
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 tsp Sriracha
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1/8 tsp cayenne

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Cut potatoes into evenly cut fries- the more even, the better cooking
Step 2: Soak the fries in water for 15 minutes
Step 3: Drain, Pat dry, and throw in a Ziplock bag with the cornstarch and cayenne
Step 4: Toss with 1 Tbsp canola oil and spread out evenly on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil
Step 5: Sprinkle with pepper and salt, and drizzle with other Tbsp of canola oil
Step 6: Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, flip, and then bake for another 15 minutes. If you cut your fries a little thicker, they may need more time- so bake until crispy!
Once they're cool, taste- and sprinkle with more salt/pepper to taste.
Step 7: Mix all dip ingredients together and enjoy!

You guys.
They are seriously addictive. The dip is so damn good. Yup.

Okay guys, time to talk Foot Petals.

Actually, wait. This first: The Foot Petals people have no idea who I am. As much as I'd love for them to be big old Beauty & the Beard fans and send me free goods, they don't know I exist. Just so we're clear before I start. 

I used to wear heels A LOT. Work. Nights out at the bars. Special events.
As I've gotten older (and my time gettin' fancy for the bars multiple nights a week has declined diminished) I really only wear them occasionally- for work or weddings, really. 

Maybe I just had tougher feet back then or what- but when I wear heels now they HURRRRRRRT.
I don't know how I wore them 3-5 times a week for hours on end! 

I won't go on whining- all I have to say is I finally broke down and bought some Foot Petals and they are now my magical new best friends (sorry, other best friends). 

Foot Petals- save your feet from your high heels!

Best ways I've used them:
Heavenly Heels: in the back heel of my high heels (duh)- for a FULL night on my feet at an event...not ONE SINGLE BLISTER. Boom.

Heavenly Heels: In the front part of my short booties (the...er...lower shin? front ankle? help me out, med students) that always rub against my skin and hurt. This probably isn't what they're intended for, but dang it works!

Pressure Pointz: Riiiight on the bottom of my pumps where the ball of my foot takes all the pressure. Extra cushion saves so much pain. Fuh real.

There's about 6 or 7 other varieties of these things, but since they're not super cheap, these are the only two I've bought so far (Heavenly Heels are $19, Pressure Pointz are $9). I've seen them sold around, but I buy them from HERE because of the super fast free shipping.

Anyone else used these things and loved them too?
Anyone who is sick of getting blisters or pain from wearing your shoes- GET. THESE!
