Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

We love sweet potatoes at our house and the hubs has been asking for this particular recipe for a while now. Unfortunately for him, I make "too damn many different recipes" so it took me a while to figure out which one it was that he wanted! :) I had forgotten how simple these were to throw together and how tasty they are... They do take a while to cook though, so don't start them too late like I did last night or you will have starving kids!! :)

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes
(recipe found at www.foodnetwork.com)

2 pounds red skinned sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1" pices and put in a 9x13" baking dish. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, honey and lemon juice. Pour mixture over potatoes and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the salt and bake, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.
