      Children, DD1 (5 years old), DD2 (15 months old) and I liked these. I used either overgrown sweet potatoes or they called them yams on the store sign, additional light tasting extra virgin olive oil (nothing on the pans), extra ground cumin, no ground coriander as I didn't have any on hand (all my spices are in my other house 5 hours away) and no pepper for the same reason. Two different pans cooked for different amounts of time. We ate them with home-made honey mustard using organic, raw, local honey. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game 2013.

      Instead of Yam fries how about Yummy fries? As these are very yummy! These tasty fries could not be any easier or tastier, made them as written and would not change a thing. Thanks so much for the post.

      these are simple and sooooo good!!! The spices are perfect :) I did add a bit of salt and didn't have any cooking spray, so I used a little bit of canola oil on the baking sheet and it worked fine. I dipped them in some garilc/basil mayo I had in the fridge (1/2c mayo, 1 clove garlic(minced, not crushed), 2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil, let sit in the fridge for 15 min or so to let the flavors mingle ) .... dangerous!!!! thanks for posting!! Will use over and over...yum!
