Better than French Fries

I like french fries, do you? I used to eat fast food and restaurant french fries, but not anymore. I’d rather make my own “french fries” because it’s better and healthier for me. So what makes it better than the popular french fries? It’s not deep-fried in fat, and I can choose to put more healthy seasonings in it. Next time you crave for french fries, think of healthier, better french fries — homemade baked potato fries! It’s very easy, you can make it! 🙂 Great for light supper with fruits and fresh juice, or as a side dish.
