    Baked Garlic & Herb Sweet Potato Fries

    Coat with anything you like. I used the ingredients below, and I did not measure the amounts.  Some people enjoy cinnamon on these as well.

    I love fries; who doesn’t? But with a thyroid that functions as badly as mine does, fries are simply not an option…ever. The best I can do is to steal one off of Ric’s plate every now and then, having … Continue reading
