About La Mother Tongue

La Mother Tongue is my medium to share the joys and challenges of being a new parent as well as to share how we make a conscious effort in our daily life to bring baby up bilingual.

 Peruvians eat a lot of camote (sweet potato). Real camote out of the ground--- not the strange mushy stuff from a can. I like to add my own twist--cayenne pepper!
Here is the simple receta: peel and cut camote into 1/4 inch rounds. Toss to coat with olive oil ( in a bowl). With non-stick spray, coat cookie sheet lined with aluminio. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutos. Prick with fork to check desired tenderness. Sprinkle with salt as soon as you remove camote from the oven. Delicios!
