Cinnamon-Sugar Sweet Potato Wedges

Baked sweet potato/yam wedges make for the perfect appetizer, snack and side dish.  This vegetable is one of my favourite things.  Period.  Ahead of sweet potatoes would be pancakes, diamonds, apple pie and shoes.  Not necessarily in that order.  I'm mean diamonds after pancakes?  A girl would have to be crazy.  Crazy about pancakes that is...

My strong feelings towards sweet potatoes, stems from their versatility.  Serve them sweet or savory.  Either way, roast 'em up, I'm hungry.  Today, my sweet tooth won and this was the perfect snack for family movie night.  Carbs, couches, PJs and the movie Cars 2 capped off our Saturday night.  Here's to full bellies and family traditions!

Cinnamon-Sugar Sweet Potato Wedges
