    I’m just starting to use your recipes on my laptop(not cooked yet).They look interesting, well illustrated & easy to follow. I wonder if your free sign up for emails & recipe e-books are available in the UK also. I have grandchildren there who I think would be interested, if so.

        Do you have a plant based recipe book. No oil, no refined sugar. Our family have used Crosby’s molasses for decades and my parents used to buy it in huge kegs for their store back in the 60’s.
        I’m trying to incorporate more plant based recipes using molasses. When there is oil, I omit it. What cook book do you suggest or subscription? I don’t want my email box filled with all recipes.
        Thank you.

    These weren’t a wow for me, but it may have been my fault. I drained off the excess glaze before baking the wedges and I think it may have been better to leave it on. My baked wedges were dry looking, unlike the ones pictured with the recipe that seem to be well coated with glaze. The flavour was very good. It was more the texture that was disappointing. I’m going to try them again, without draining the marinade before roasting. The seasonings are well balanced.

      Hi Bridget, I made these again, and this time I didn’t drain off the excess marinade from the wedges before baking. They were excellent! The wedges were beautifully glazed, soft and moist. They looked just like the ones pictured with the recipe. The leftovers reheated nicely under the broiler. Great recipe!

    I love grilled sweet potato and this recipe was a nice change. It’s yummy and has just enough zing to make it really tasty.
