This year, Laura is sharing recipes for EVERYING in your box. Today I’m posting one of them: Paprika Sweet Potato Fries. This pub food is made healthier with use of olive oil and by baking , not frying. I used smoked paprika in lieu of plain for a deep woodsy flavor. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
