Potatoes are humble vegetables. Inexpensive and incredibly flexible, they make for some of the best savory food creations.

Take these baked potato wedges for example. These spicy, crispy, roasted potatoes are all you need out of comfort food. And because they’re baked, you’re doing yourself a favor by cutting out all the fat. Still not the healthiest dish around, I’ll admit. But when you go high on starch, you could benefit from reducing the fat at the very least, yeah?

You can use your favorite combination of spices to customize these wedges the way you want. In fact, I always like experimenting with the seasoning, just so that I could enjoy the variety. These extra crispy baked potato wedges are quickly becoming a Friday-night staple. I freaking adore them and I’ll bet you would too! 🙂   (more…)

I’m a sucker for a good slice of brownie. I like all kinds of brownies – classic, fudgy, chewy, nutty, rocky and many more.

I like having this mix ready for whenever I need or want to make brownies. It is just so handy, you know? The brownies taste as good, if not better, as the boxed brownie mix. You can keep it in your cabinet for whenever a brownie craving hits. Or if you have a foodie friend, gift a jar of this homemade brownie mix to him or her and watch them go nuts over the brownies that “they’ve” baked! 🙂 The best thing about keeping some of this homemade brownie mix on hand is to be able to dump stuff in a bowl and make a chocolaty magic happen whenever you please.

To make brownies, all you gotta do is take a cup of this mix and add some eggs or yogurt and some oil or melted butter (i.e – give moisture and binding) and you’re all set!    (more…)
