Celebrate this day with a healthier spin on fries. They're baked to reduce the fat content and sweet potatoes for an overall nutritional boost! Just 2 simple steps is all it takes...and one of them is to turn on your oven :). Of course, if you want to whip up a quick sauce to serve alongside then you add a few more steps but you can do that while they bake. I just mixed some honey, chipotle powder, and a pinch of salt into some plain Greek Yogurt. Ketchup is also a simpler and delicious option.
Watch out, they're addicting! So much so that I literally dove right into my fresh-out-of-the-oven batch nearly burning my fingers and forgot to take a picture!! Sorry about that :P. If you really need to see a picture to drool over, check out Gina's site :).

Two Years Ago: Jamie's Minestrone - One of my all-time favorite soups...nevermind that there's a heatwave. Now that I'm in a CSA share again this year this might be the *perfect* recipe for using my organic farm fresh veggies!
