Sweet Potato Fries: They're Good, Y'all!

Here in the South, most of us are more than half-way thru the summer, which means there have been a lot of cook-outs & a lot of eating out on the run. So, the other day while I was eating what seemed like french fry number #285 for the summer, I started a search for a little bit healthier alternative.

And, lo and behold, I found one from one of the most unlikely people: Queen of Southern cooking, Paula Deen.

I, for one, love her with her fabulous Southern accent & delectably Southern dishes. But, let's face it, y'all...she didn't get famous for helping us all get healthy.

{Isn't she adorable? And that kitchen is swoon-worthy.}

But, she does have a great recipe for Baked Sweet Potato Fries which you can find by clicking here. Like every other recipe of hers I've tried, they're delish. And easy to make as well.

And the best part is, they're actually healthy. Which is more than I can say about her Savannah Chocolate Cake with Hot Fudge. Yum.

We loved the Sweet Potato Fries. Let me know if you like them, too!


  1. I absolutely adore sweet potato fries!! YUM YUM YUM!! I'll try this recipe - so far my homemade ones arn't all that great (probably b/c I'm not deep frying them). If you ever wanna get frozen ones (hey desperate times call for desperate measures) I have found that the Kroger brand are the BEST! And I think I've just about tried all of them at this point.

  2. Love that sweet lady, Paula...her magazines are my most-dog-eared ones. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. you mean they don't contain a couple sticks of butter? i was pretty sure everything she made did!

    those look great. i'll have to try them!

  4. yeah- Me and that Paula Deen- we are tied at the waist. Butter? Chocolate? Cream? Yep-use them all! There are a few restuarants hee that serve sweet potoato fries on the side. Love them- xo Diana

  5. Hurray for the sweet potato fries! I am a big fan of them myself. Thanks for the link you provided to Paula Deen's recipe.

  6. I've never been a sweet potato fan (this may be sacrilegious in the south!) but think I'd be much more inclined to splurge on that chocolate cake. It's hard not to love PD though. She's a sweetheart!

  7. Ahhh look you have Savannah's sweetheart here today.. I wonder how in the world does she cooks all that yummy stuff and still fit into her clothes..I read one of her recipes and gain weight. I'm a big fan of sweet tator's I also like to cut them round and very thin then fry really crisp.

    Have a wonderful weekend and
    hugs from Savannah, Cherry


I love hearing from each of you and will do my best to respond! Thanks so much for stopping by. So glad you're here!
