A couple of new recipes...

I have been so sick and tired of our usual meals lately! Allison and I have been using Allrecipes.com to help broaden our tastes a bit. We've found some real keepers and thought I'd get them on here so that I can find them again later.lol

First off, Granola!

(this is a great recipe and sugar free)

4 cups oats
1 cup nuts (I used chopped walnuts)
1 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds, hulled
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
a dash of salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix together and cook at 300* for 10 minutes, stir and then cook 10 minutes more, stir and cook until brown.(about 5 minutes)

Let cool and add fruit if desired.


Next on the list is, Baked French Fries

Chop 1 large potato however you like your fries. I did steak fry shapes because I wanted them to cook faster.

Add potatoes in a baggie with...

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt

You'll need to adjust seasonings for larger amounts of potatoes. I used about 1/2 cup olive oil, 6 potatoes, and lots more seasonings. Mix all the ingredients together and pour onto a baking sheet. Cook at 425* for 20 minutes, stir and cook another 20 minutes or until browned. Yum!

Lisa, I love allrecipes because of the great reviews! I've been trying some new ones, but nothing has stood out to remember. I'll have to "lie low" for the next week or so until my family forgets, lol.
