The Food Matters Project: Sweet Potato and Corn Fritters

This is what it's come to. If you look at the photo on the left, you'll see the light. I think we should take a moment to mourn its loss, don't you? The earlier sunrise does make it easier for me to wake up at 6 am, but the 5 pm sunset makes me utterly helpless when it comes to taking blog pictures. If you look at the photo on the right, you'll see the glare from my kitchen bulb, and my shadow from standing over the plate with iPhone in hand. Sigh.

But onto the recipe! It's quite good, with bright flavors, and easy to prep in advance. When it came to making the fritters, I followed Mark Bittman's recipe, but decided to use a lone avocado and Greek yogurt to slather alongside instead of the Thai dipping sauce.

For the original recipe, visit Aura's blog.

This look delicious. Yes, I, too, am mourning the loss of the sun!

Thanks for cooking this week, Nicole! Glad you liked. I too am so sad about daylight savings. It really does make it difficult to take good photos, especially on a weekday when I'm not exactly cooking away in the middle of my workday! :(

I totally know how you feel. I'm often taking photos late at night, long after the sun has gone down... so I have to resort to unnatural lighting... but your fritters still look yummy :)
