When I think of dessert, I always imagine something chocolate. Fruit desserts are good, but they usually lack the decadence that chocolate desserts have. However, fruit crisps hold a special place in my heart. This recipe is an adapted version of my grandmother’s apple crisp and it will forever remind me of the days we’d…

Oven Baked French Fries

Who doesn’t love french fries? They’re salty and crispy and we all know they’re not good for us, for various reasons. However, potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamin B, potassium, magnesium and iron, but they are one of the top 12 produce items that are most contaminated with pesticides. For this reason alone,…
