An old dog learns new tricks (part 2)

It's been an interesting exercise to post recipes before actually preparing them. The good news: the jalapeno poppers were everything I hoped for - crisp, spicy, and with a creamy center of corn kernels and a Mexican cheese mix. I bumped the oven up to 450 degrees. They were done somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes. The bad news: the sweet potatoes were limp and soft - albeit very flavorful. There was just no crispness to them at all. My next post (probably tomorrow morning) will be for a celery soup. Thanks in advance to Mary of "One Perfect Bite" for the "loan" of a photo. "See" you in the morning.

I agree Stephen, such inspiration from our fellow bloggers!! Your recipes sound great, can't wait to hear how they turn out :) And whats up with no jalapeños???? I can send you some from Colorado if you need, lord knows we've got tons here LOL

I love both of these recipes. I especially like that you added corn to your poppers... I bet it gave them a great texture.

I'm not the biggest fan of sweet potato fries...I prefer a russet...but I've had them at a restaurant with a white truffle mayo dipping sauce...and damn were they good.

I love sweet potatoes...and making them into fries, if done right are my all time favorite way to consume them! Let me know if they came out crispy...last time I baked some they were quite soggy and I was disappointed. I'm gonna try dredging my jalapenos next time and baking them...I wonder how they will compare to the deep fried ones?

Your poppers look wonderful but I have a question about the sweet potato fries. Did they really get crisp? Mine always develop great flavor but are limp and really bendy.

Feel free to use the photo. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
