Garden to Kitchen: Parmesan Oven Fries

This fall I gave my son his first cookbook, and this was one of the first recipes he chose to make -- and we're so glad he did. These crunchy oven fries are simple, healthy, and so delicious that they make you forget you ever ate fries prepared any other way.
