Sweet potato fries are not my friend. I find the idea of them irresistible (crunchy outside, soft inside, without the funny gassy flavor that regular potatoes bring), but the practice always disappoints. Luisa Weiss’ write-up here seduced me to give them another try, but alas. Chewy, hard-edged and a bit greasy. Pah. Well, at least we discovered that the baby is not allergic to egg when scarved down one from my plate without ill-effect.
