Guaranteed Crispy Sweet Potato Fries & Sriracha Mayo Dip

Guaranteed Crispy Sweet Potato Fries & Sriracha Mayo Dip
Right here, right now I am going to teach you how to make crispy sweet potato fries. But first … Let’s get one thing straight. A sweet potato french fry is not a real french fry. They are french fry substitutes to be eaten when a real french fry can’t be found. Yes, I know. I have been eating, making and lusting after french fries for as long as I can remember. Best way to eat a french fry? But … if you’re on some sort of stupid meal plan, or you’re all out of regular potatoes, or you just feel like having something a little different, why wouldn’t you cook up some Sweet Potato French Fries? Because they’re soggy messes. I’ve oven baked them, par boiled them and deep fried them and they don’t get crispy. Finally, I’ve figured out how to make crispy sweet potato fries and the best part is you can do them in the deep fryer or the oven! But like with most things, you’re more guaranteed if you do them in the deep fryer. Here’s what you need to do … Gather your sweet potatoes. See?

Chocolate Turtle Cookies I hope you’ve saved room for one last cookie recipe, because these were my favorites of the season! When Steph, the social media manager from America’s Test Kitchen, sent me a copy of I had a hard time deciding which cookies to make. I asked Joseph if he could help me narrow down the options and when I opened the cover he saw these chocolate turtle cookies and said, “Those. Make those.” I told him he couldn’t take the easy way out; he had to look at all 64 recipes and tell me which one he wanted. But even after going through the entire special issue, he stuck with his original answer: the chocolate turtle cookies. And frankly, it’s just further proof that I picked out the perfect guy because he was so right. I know, it’s a new year, and eating healthier is on nearly everyone’s list of resolutions. Ingredients 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup cocoa powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened 2/3 cup sugar 1 large egg, separated, plus 1 egg white 2 tablespoons milk

CREAMY BACON CARBONARA When I die and go to heaven . . . I sure hope they’re serving this. If you want a fast but ultra delicious meal in just minutes, this is the dish. The sauce is creamy, cheesy and crazy good! You could easily add chicken, ham or any vegetable you would like. It’s soooooo simple, that I figured you didn’t need any pictures to make it. This recipe comes from The Kitchen Bitch Cookbook. “That’s even worse than the name of this blog!” I could easily consider this my favorite meal. Creamy Bacon Carbonara 2 eggs ¼ cup Cream or Heavy Cream (Whipping Cream) ⅓ cup Parmesan Fresh diced Parsley or dried flakes ¼ tsp. Beat the eggs, cream, Parmesan, parsley, salt and the red pepper together in a bowl. Notes: I doubled the sauce recipe and I saved a bit of the pasta water, just in case my sauce got thicker than I liked. 2 eggs 1/4 cup Cream or Heavy Cream (Whipping Cream) 1/3 cup Parmesan Fresh diced Parsley or dried flakes 1/4 tsp. 1/2 tsp Red Pepper flakes *(I doubled the Sauce recipe, and it was perfect)

Peanut Butter Caramel Twix Bars Peanut Butter Caramel Twix Bars I’ve been wanting to make three different bars for awhile, but they were all so similar, and I couldn’t decide which one to make. So I rolled them into one. Nothing beats a layered combination bar. Original Twix are a shortbread base, caramel middle, chocolate coating. Peanut Butter Twix are a shortbread base, peanut butter middle, chocolate coating. Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars are a shortbread base, caramel middle, and chocolate topping, similar to Original Twix. Tagalongs Girl Scout Cookies are a shortbread base, peanut butter middle, and chocolate topping, similar to Peanut Butter Twix. Trying to choose between peanut butter and caramel, and which to keep and which to skip, is like trying to choose a favorite child. My bars are a shortbread base, peanut butter layer, salted caramel layer, and chocolate topping. The nice thing about the bars is that they’re almost no-bake, with only about 12 minutes of bake time for the crust. My husband remarked, “Wow.

Avocado Fries With Cilantro Lemon Dipping Sauce A couple weeks ago I went out to an improv comedy show with my friend Alana, (the same one from the Blue Velvet Cake post). We met up early beforehand and walked around Hollywood until we found a fun Irish pub to have a few snacks at before we went over to the show. I look at the menu and ordered the avocado fries, thinking they were french fried served with some kind of guacamole dip or with chunks of avocados sprinkled over them. When I got them they looked just like normal, thick, breaded pub fries. Then I bit into them...and I realized that I was in heaven. Ingredients: Avocado Fries Oil For Frying 2 Avocados 2 Eggs, beaten 1 and 1/3 Cup Bread Crumbs 1 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper 1/2 Teaspoon Salt Cilantro Lemon Dipping Sauce 5 Tablespoons Mayonnaise 3 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, chopped Juice from 1/2 of Lemon In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, lemon pepper, salt and cumin.

pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe In my humble opinion, there’s cooking and there’s cooking. (I know, I’ll just give you a minute for the staggering profundity of that sentence to kick in.) What I mean is, it’s one thing to turn banana bread into a crepe, that crepe into a cake, that cake into a vehicle for walnut butterscotch, drooling, diet-postponing, and seconds, and it’s an entirely other thing to find yourself at the playground at 5:15 p.m. and realize a) you don’t actually have anything in the fridge that you can turn into dinner, b) you, in fact, barely feel like cooking, in fact, your interest in cooking is only a single degree stronger than your desire to order in, so this better be easy, and c) the adjacent farmers market which you have heard from others boasts ramps and asparagus and spinach and other new! spring! Or, I didn’t before last Wednesday afternoon. And this is how by 6 p.m. Pasta with Garlicky Broccoli Rabe Adapted, just a smidge, from Gourmet, September 2006

Microwave Potato Chips — Really! I like to think of myself as a glass-half-full kind of gal. I tend to have a sunny demeanor. I try to accentuate the positive even in the most grave of situations. And I’m optimistic that one can do anything one sets one’s mind to — or at the very least get darn close to it. But when I stumbled upon a recipe early last year in Eating Well magazine for making potato chips in the microwave, I balked. I was wrong. As part of the Reheat Anything Generation, I knew full well from experience that foods heated or cooked in the microwave most often turned out soft and limp, not crunchy. So how could thinly sliced potatoes end up crackling crisp? They not only do, but they also possess a purity of flavor — of real, fresh potatoes. Plus, there’s no heating up a vat of oil or turning on a hot oven to make these. The recipe calls for cutting up the potatoes into 1/8-inch slices. Toss with olive oil, and salt. I’m still a glass-half-full gal. Microwave Potato Chips (makes 4 servings, 12-14 chips each)
