Baked Sweet Potato Fries

January 4, 2014: On our quest to start eating healthier this year, we have been trying new vegetables. I have known I've always loved sweet potato fries, but Andy has never been a big fan of them. That's fine- more for me!

During January, we went to meet our friends, Holly and Jason, at Whiskey and Rye, the sports bar located inside of the Omni Fort Worth Hotel (which is where we're getting MARRIED! That's a whole 'nother blog entry though!). We went to watch the New Orleans Saints take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Since the Cowboys played so horribly this year, I decided I was going to be a Saints fan instead. The Saints pulled out a win, 26-24, and I was excited that my new favorite team was rocking it.

Andy ordered grilled sweet potatoes, and I reminded him he didn't like them but he said he was wanting to try them anyway. He ended up really liking them, so I tried to find a recipe that was similar to the ones at Whiskey and Rye. This recipe was as close as I could get but seeing as it was January and freezing outside, we opted to bake them instead of grill them.
