I'm not a big fan of fried foods, but I do love sweet potatoes and this recipe caught my eye. For a treat, try it! Slice the sweet potatoes as thinly as possible to decrease fry time and increase crispness. Slicing the sweet potatoes with a mandoline makes for wafer-thin and uniform rounds. But you can also use a chef's knife to slice the potatoes. Adapted from Serious Eats. I believe they got this from Marvin Gapultos who is the author of the Filipino food blog, Burnt Lumpia.
Easy peasy using storebought mayonnaise! A delicious mayo great for almost any savory sandwich or added to salad dressings or dips! Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens magazine((Sept. 2005). I'm not sure why the nutritional info says 900 some calories. The USDA says that 1/4 cup mayo = 229 calories, so don't worry.
A delicious soup for the early fall, made with late harvest tomatoes and the first fennel of the season. The acidity of the tomatoes witll retard the cooking of the vegetables, so be sure they are very tender before adding them. Include the fennel trimmings in the stock, they'll enrich the flavor. Adapted from the Fields of Greens restaurant in San Fransisco.
Adapted from Martha Stewart magazine, I have changed the recipe just a bit. The original recipe calls for goat's milk. I have changed it to half rice or almond milk and half yogurt, so you still get a nice tang. Okay, I also added just a little pepper and sometimes I add a little fresh or frozen corn. Enjoy!
These yummy appetizers are roaste instead of deep fried. Choose the smallest red potatoes you can find to keep them easy to eat. The kids can help scoop out and stuff the potatoes and then sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy! A Spanish influenced recipe. Adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.
Mushrooms can be as satisfying as meat because they develop earthy, bold and beefy flavors as they cook. Served with pasta, this is some meal! :)

This recipe is from Alton Brown's Eat This Rock! You cook the potatoes in heavily salted water and the salt crystallizes on the outside of the potatoes. It seems like a lot of salt but it works. The reviews rave over it! I have slightly adapted it. They are even good cold!
