I want to thank everyone who visited my blog, and also Joy’s blog, yesterday and especially so for all your warm birthday greetings. You have made my day very, very special indeed. This must be my best birthday so far. I must say it’s really awesome to receive so many birthday greetings from around the world. Blogging has indeed added so much fun and meaning to my life, especially making so many wonderful friends around.

Well, you may be interested to know what I ate yesterday. I had a great time at home. My children made heart-shaped pikelets for me for brunch. Of course I had them dripping with condensed milk…mmm…fabulous! Then for dinner, it was again one of my favourites……sweet potatoes! I made baked Cajun sweet potato wedges to go with lamb chop with the most beautiful creamy mustard sauce prepared by my children. Also, a quick stir fried bok choy, another one of my favourites, to go with it. That was one of my best meals so far.

Sweet potatoes are such a healthy and delicious tuber which I’ll never get tired of. I was very touched when Shirley from sent me 3 lovely sweet potato recipes for Valentine’s Day! That’s so sweet of her. I’ll have to try them one day. However, cooking Cajun way is an inspiration from Drick at He has many mouth-watering dishes using Cajun seasoning. So I thought I must try it on my sweet potatoes. Sounds weird to try it on sweet potatoes but then I wanted something different. To avoid any complains I baked some normal potatoes with the Cajun seasonings too. Well, they came out very delicious. I liked them very much.

My Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Wedges are very easy to make. The recipe is very simple.

sweet potatoes
sea salt
brown sugar
Cajun seasoning

Peel the sweet potatoes first and then cut into wedges. Sprinkle with some salt, brown sugar, some Cajun seasoning and some oil.

Mix them well and lay them in a layer on a paper-lined baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes. Serve hot. They are healthy and delicious.

noobcook  on February 17th, 2010

Looks like a great meal. I love sweet potato for its natural sweetness and it’s also very filling :)

Divina  on February 17th, 2010

Glad you enjoyed your birthday. It’s really a blessing from God to be another year older. :) But still young at heart. I do have a sweet potato gnocchi recipe. Oh no, I’m supposed to send you a sweet potato patties recipe. Why don’t you try this first. Grate the potatoes and squeeze out excess moisture through a cheesecloth. Add salt and pepper or cooked onions or ham and form into patties and pan-fry in oil. Sometimes i do free form patties by shaping them directly on the pan.

That looks like a great meal! Have not had lamb chops for a while now. You make me want to rush to the store to get some :) The sweet potatoes must be very tasty with the cajun spice….yummy!

Tasty Trix  on February 17th, 2010

Happy belated birthday!! I love the Cajun spice on the sweet potatoes - Drick will love it too I’m sure. (But I bet he’s too tired from Mardi Gras to be on the computer today, lol.)

Light Delight with TouTou  on February 17th, 2010

I have never tried the cajun seasoning….does that make the sweet potato salty??? the wedges looks really good , maybe next time I should pick the seasoning up from the shelf!

Mary  on February 18th, 2010

@Roti n Rice - I really enjoyed my meal….all my favourite on a dish :D

@Tasty Trix - Thanks very much! Still counted :D Poor Drick…he must be snoring away…haha. I’m sure he had lots of fun with all the props and food.

@Light Delight with TouTou - The sweet pottaoes tasted sweet and salty which I like. Give a try. Cajun seasoning (I’ve just discovered) is really nice for cooking. Looks like I’ll be adding to lots of food soon :D
