Spiced Yam Fries


When we make a batch of these spiced yam fries, Papa Bear, Mama Bear and the Little Bears dig in. We serve them with hamburgers and salad for a simple weeknight meal. They are jazzed up with some good-for-you spices (like tumeric, read about that here) and baked versus deep-fried.
