How to make your own aluminum-free baking powder

This is certainly not my own recipe, but I thought you might all be interested in knowing that you can make your own baking powder for cheap without the aluminum ingredient and taste. ( To make the one teaspoon of commercial baking powder, mix together: 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch I plan on making this in bigger quantities and then will refill my baking powder cantainer.

Healthy Sweet Potato Fries (by Mommypotamus)

2 sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into strips
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, warmed up to liquify it
salt and pepper to taste

Line a cookie sheet or baking dish with aluminum foil and then place the sweet potato strips onto the foil.
Pour the liquid coconut oil over the sweet potatoes and use hands to mix it all evenly together.  Then sprinkle
salt and pepper and make sure all sweet potatoes are spread out in a single layer so that they can cook
evenly.  Place in oven on top rack for 30-40 minutes.  Done.

Add cinnamon or chipotle pepper to spice it up!
