Are you noticing a trend on FFC? This is the second cookbook and sweet potato recipe (adore sweet potatoes!) here in one week. Today I am thrilled to be a part of Aida Mollenkamp’s Keys to the Kitchen Virtual Dinner Party!

I love virtual parties, it means I can hang out with all of my bestie blog pals in my PJ’s and talk about food. Perhaps you have seen around the web, people have been posting GREAT recipes from Aida’s cookbook.

Today I am sharing my take on Aida’s Sweet Potato Hash.

Keys to the Kitchen will become eveyrone’s new kitchen bible. Really.

It’s a bright new take on a cooking reference book. Bright like these sunflowers…

Pretty Sunflowers on FamilyFreshCooking.com © MarlaMeridith.com

Remember how everyone had The Joy of Cooking? Remember how you probably have it tucked away somewhere?

It is a great reference, but there were no gorgeous color photos. The recipes in it are classic but a tad dated for a modern gal like me.

What is your favorite Egg recipe? Check out one of ours on FamilyFreshCooking.com © MarlaMeridith.com

In Aida’s book she will give you all the essential keys to the kitchen.

It’s liberating and intriguing to have these keys ~ kind of like when your mom and dad give you the keys to the car for the very first time. Freedom rules. Ahhhhhhh.

Sweet Potato Hash is superbly healthy comfort food. For folks on grain free, Paleo diets it is great for you too. Also for the gluten free folks. One size fits all with this recipe. Except the vegans. If you are vegan skip the eggs and use some tofu or tempeh instead. That would be delicious!

I was up against a lot photographing this recipe. The amazingly talented Alex Farnum shot the cookbook.

Every page is tempting and awe inspiring. The way he works with light is so intriguing and unique. Alex is such a great talent and certainly someone I will now be pinning and watching carefully. (not stalking, watching)

Aida will walk you through ingredient basics.

Important sections such as How to Freeze, Kitchen Tool Kits, prepping all kinds of meats and seafood will make you much more comfortable in your own kitchen.

You will not be intimidated to try things you have never tried before. You will also be excited to make your own changes and adaptations, because you now have the tools to do so!

For this Sweet Potato Hash ~ Aida gave me the keys and I drove away with a few small tweaks. You have gotta try this asap. A perfect meal for any time of the day.

I suggest you tuck some in your lunchbox too, that way you can have the comforts and health of a whole meal at your fingertips for school, work or for travel (yes, I pack this kind of thing when I travel.)

You might want to grab your favorite cowboy mug when you munch this hash. It might even make you want to saddle up a horse. It’s that kinda tasty grub.

Now that looks like a cowboys breakfast – washed down with a cup of tea? He’s a british cowboy! Love your addition to the virtual dinner party – do you think it would be as good with poached eggs? Or even better could you cook the eggs in the pan like eggs in pergutory?

I love this one Spatula from Target. It is really thin metal that is very bendy that also has a nonstick rubbery outside, and it is perfect for eggs, pancakes,etc.

Shoot – one favorite tool? That’s hard. I do love the microplane, garlic mincer, and sharp knives. Favorite ingredient? Garlic! A good tip – get your pan hot first before adding oil—the oil will shimmer and the food such as fish will not stick.

My best kitchen tip is – place fresh rosemary in any ant prone areas of your kitchen (especially your pantry). It works wonders at keeping the pesky ants away!

I just made this dish last weekend, well not the exact dish I just tried to make a sweet potato hash with almost the same ingredients you used. The problem I had was my sweet potatoes were to soft. I diced and boiled them before I used them, the dish still tasted fine but it was mussy. I’ll try it this way next time, because after I made this I knew it was going to be a new staple dish in my diet. As a matter of fact I’m still eating it four days later.
