Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle Aioli July 18, 2011 at 6:09 pm French fries are one of my favorite comfort foods – salty, carby goodness! I rarely ever order my own side of fries when eating out, with the exception of a few places that make the thick-cut version like Ted Montana’s Grill or Fuddruckers, oh my! My preference is a thicker fry instead of shoestring so I can really taste the potato instead of just the fried coating on the outside. I’ve made my own baked versions numerous times, with both white and sweet potatoes, but my sweet potato fries always turned out limp and soggy. When I ran across a tip for crispy baked sweet potato fries in an edition of Clean Eating Magazine from earlier this year, I was super excited! Although I’ve eaten these with unsweetened ketchup before, I thought I’d make a chipotle aioli for a dipping sauce for a little kick.

Keeping it Clean: Food 101 I am so thrilled to be welcoming a fabulous guest today who will be sharing something that *I* have really needed to learn more about – clean eating! I am a junk food junkie and I feel awful more days than not. Reading these tips have me motivated to change my diet and to start looking and feeling better in no time! I remember looking through health and lifestyle magazines in years past and coming across samples of healthy daily diets and thinking to myself, “These people must be starving themselves with this food.” I was completely wrong. Let me back up and say that I’ve always loved healthy food. Now, I eat to fuel. In January of this year, I decided to clean up my and my family’s diet. Everyone’s idea of clean eating is different. With that being said, I take my coffee with cream and sugar. I know people say it’s about balance, which is true, BUT, that balance needs to be weighted heavier in the direction of the good, healthy stuff. Push it all the way. Eating clean can be easy.

conseguenza Korean zucchini pancakes – hobak jeon! Could someone please tell me where the year has gone? Anyone? Hello? I stared at the calendar at work today in complete and utter disbelief. And I realized with complete and utter horror that I turn 29 in a few months time. 29? I was at the dentist earlier this week and while having my cracked tooth repaired (did you know that if you’re a dedicated teeth-grinder, you can actually crack your teeth? Which lies at the heart of the issue, I guess. Did you ever write a list of things you want to have accomplished before you’re 30? You see, one of the things that I wanted to do before turning 30 was to publish a collection of our family’s Korean recipes – traditional recipes written for an English-speaking audience to make authentic Korean cooking easy to grasp. So today’s recipe is another Korean one. Unfortunately my brain is rather fried these days so I’m going to keep this short and sweet – but I need your help! But for now, scroll down to read through my latest offering! 호박전 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

intro Salted Caramel Butter Bars These Salted Caramel Butter bars are one of my most requested recipes ever! As I sit here and type this post I am currently in a funk. A funk because it is raining. A funk because it is crazy windy. A funk because it is getting colder by the second and soon enough we will be into New Jersey’s never-ending winter. A funk because my “fat” jeans are currently my “skinny” jeans. A funk because I would like a bowl of soup and no one will make it for me. A funk because The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills won’t be on again until Thursday. A funk because I just got movies in the mail from Netflix and apparently my husband has been the only one updating the “queue”. A funk because I stayed home today to get laundry and housework done and all I successfully managed to do was catch up on all my dvr’d Jerseylicious episodes. A funk because my nails are ugly. A funk because I am still in my pj’s and it is 4:56 p.m. But I will tell you… No, it’s not the winning lottery numbers, settle down people. Trust.

red wine chocolate cake Saturday night, New York City was the loudest I’d heard it in a long time. I should preface this by saying that I live in a noisy part of an already noisy neighborhood and under the best of circumstances — NYU students gone for the summer, long holiday weekend, rain — there’s always a Saturday night ruckus. But this was something else. I don’t have a 9/11 story. The next year was a blur of trying to get our heads around the unfathomable, and I barely remember it. This month marks another anniversary, the fifth of this site.
