Why are French fries so good? 

Ok, so I know why, but I just wish I didn't like them.  Honestly, I don't know if I've ever met a fry I didn't like.  I'm trying to think...

If I had my druthers, I would eat McDonald's fries every afternoon with a big Diet Dr. Pepper.  But since that's never going to happen, I decided to look for a more figure-friendly option.  Enter sweet potato fries.

Now of course I'd rather them be well, fried, but that's not going to happen.  So last night, I went on a search for a crispy, oven-baked, sweet potato fry recipe.  I found this one here, and had some success with it, but I am still not bowled over.

Suggestions?  What are your thoughts on sweet potato fries?
