This is a great side dish for Thanksgiving.

potatoes are really starting to show its usability. Sweet Potato

French Fries have been around for years. Now, they are starting to

get recognized for their health benefits. It is a beneficial food for

diabetics, which I am one, for their help in stabilizing blood sugar and

in lowering insulin resistance.

baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and
