Roasted Potatoes and Yams

So, this recipe can be easily adapted to whatever taste you find most delicious - this is just generally how I roast potatoes:

Serves 4-5 people

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4-5 large potatoes (red or Yukon Gold are best, but any will do) - CUBED
2-3 medium yams/sweet potatoes - CUBED
1-3 tbsp. olive oil
Fresh or dried herbs, such as Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Marjoram, Sage, etc.
1-2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2-3/4 tsp. pepper
Additional spices - paprika, chili powder, fresh minced garlic (2 cloves), cinnamon, cardamom.
If you like a slightly sweet taste, sprinkle brown sugar over the top.

Cube the potatoes and yams. Spread on a cookie sheet. Brush them with olive oil so that the potatoes are as evenly coated as possible. Sprinkle with herbs (Rosemary, Thyme are a must and others are delicious to add as well), salt, pepper and any other additional spices you wish to add.

Bake in oven for 30 - 35 min or until tender and golden brown. Serve warm.

Sorry there is no picture - they should just look like yummy roasted potatoes. :)'s a picture of a fresh summer spread to hopefully inspire all of us to eat more fresh foods:
