Baked Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges with an Avocado Aioli

I can vouch for Coty when I say that she and I are lovers of sweet potato fries. I mean, who doesn’t love themselves some of those sweet and salty fried potatoes? When she was recently raving about some that she had a local restaurant, I instantly had a craving for them. Instead of spending the money to go out, I decided to make my own and spruce them up a bit....more

Eggplant Fries with Southwestern Aioli

I made three pans of these for myself and 2 friends and they were gone in 1 hour. I can honestly say I would choose these over regular French fries any day! The best part is you don’t feel guilty about eating them.To make these you need 1 eggplant, egg whites, and panko breadcrumbs (the amount of egg whites and panko depends upon the size of your eggplant). The Southwestern aioli requires 2 tablespoons lemon juice, ¾ cup low fat mayo, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix (from a packet)....more

I don’t know about you, but I always have some extra butternut squash on hand that I can’t get rid of.Or not.Anyhoo, some friends gave us two of them recently. Definitely not a vegetable I ever cook with. But, I didn’t want them to go to waste. After some searching, I decided on these tasty fries. I’m always excited when a recipe pans out, and to top it off, these were a hit with our 11 month old, too. Added bonus....more

Pesto Fries

I remember the first time I had Garlic Fries. I trudged all the way around Qualcomm Stadium asking everyone I saw with them where to find them. Then all the way back to my seat.

Rosemary Garlic Butternut Squash Fries

When I’m in the mood for a guilty pleasure but don’t want to bust my diet, one of my favorite go-to sides are fries made out of my favorite potato or squash. Opting to bake these fries rather than fry them makes them a much healthier option than the traditional fries many of us grew up loving. I try only to make these about once a week, opting for more greens as my family’s sides on a regular basis, but these give us the taste of splurging without being too unhealthy. My latest experiment with butternut squash resulted in this… ...more
