Prepare The Green Beans

You will need a pound of fresh green beans to make this dish, and the recipe, as written, will make 4 servings. Cut off the very tip ends of the green beans with a sharp knife, then set them aside while you get the rest of the ingredients ready to go.

A Tiny Bit Of Prep Work

Preheat your oven to 425°F. and lightly spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. Stir Panko breadcrumbs, parsley, seasoning salt, garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper and onion powder together in a bowl or on a large plate. Set the bowl or plate aside.

In a small separate dish, combine Ranch salad dressing with a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce. This will be the dipping sauce for the finished green beans. Taste it, and add more Sriracha sauce if you want it “hotter”. Set the sauce aside or refrigerate it until serving time.

Okay… now measure all purpose flour into a medium bowl. In a separate medium bowl, beat two eggs. Now you’re ready for the “Green Bean Dipping Station”. Place the various bowls on the kitchen counter in this order (L to R): Green beans, Flour, Eggs, and the Panko breadcrumb mixture last.

Let’s Get Those Green Beans Ready For The Oven!

Before you start dipping those green beans, I must tell you your fingers will probably get messy! I find it helpful to use one hand for the flour and a fork for the egg mixture. Okay, now that’s off the table, so here’s how to get those green beans ready for the oven. By the way, once you get the rhythm of it, this step will go quicker:

Step #1: Dip the green beans (one at a time or a few at a time-your choice) in the flour, coating all sides. You can use your fingers and/or a fork to do this.
Step #2: Dip flour covered beans in the egg mixture to coat all sides, letting excess egg drip back into the bowl. TIP: It’s helpful to lift them out using a fork.
Step #3: REPEAT Steps 1 and 2. (That’s right… flour, egg, flour, egg).
Step #4: Roll the green beans in the seasoned Panko breadcrumb mixture until coated on all sides.

Repeat this process for all remaining green beans, and place them on a large baking sheet in a single layer (don’t overcrowd) as you finish each “batch”.

Green beans are dredged in flour mixture to cover.Flour coated green beans are coated in egg, then process is repeated.The flour and egg coated green beans will be rolled in a panko breadcrumb/spice mixture.

Ready, Set… BAKE!

Bake at 425°F. for 10 minutes. Halfway through the baking time, turn the beans to the other side, then finish cooking. When done, the Panko coated green beans should be golden brown in color and crispy on the outside.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and serve the crispy green bean fries immediately, while hot. Be sure to serve the dipping sauce on the side, too… yum!

Time To Enjoy Some Crispy Green Bean Fries

Transfer the hot, crispy green bean fries to a serving plate with a spatula, and serve with the dipping sauce on the side. Serve immediately, and enjoy them with those you love.

The dipping sauce isn’t too spicy, so don’t be afraid to try it! P.S. If you prefer a more spicy sauce, simply add additional Sriracha (or hot sauce) to suit your personal taste.

Use The Green Beans As A Side Dish, Too!

Crispy Green Bean Fries are also great used as a side dish for a variety of meats. We especially love them served with chicken, pork and beef. Below is a photo of them served as a side dish for Easy Garlic Butter Steak Bites (with mashed potatoes also on the side)! YUM… they’re so good!

Crispy green bean fries make a great side dish for meats, as well!

 

I really hope you have the opportunity to make these crispy green bean fries, and trust you will enjoy them, too! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I invite you to come back again for more delicious recipes. Take care, may God bless you, and have a GREAT day!

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Make a dozen Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers for your next party! They’re yummy, filled with 2 cheeses and coated in brown sugar-chili spice!
Make a dozen Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers for your next party! They're yummy, filled with 2 cheeses and coated in brown sugar-chili spice!

Today I want to share a yummy recipe for bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers! The recipe makes 12 of them, so it’s a perfect appetizer to serve at a small get together or party. I love these so much, they are difficult to stay out of once made!

I found the recipe online a while ago, and loved the idea of wrapping “poppers” in bacon, then covering it in brown sugar and spice mix for added flavor! It is an easy to make appetizer, too. The whole recipe only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy these tasty treats. Here’s how to make a dozen amazing “poppers”.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Peppers For Stuffing

The first thing you’ll need to do is preheat your oven to 350°F. Now you will need to prepare the jalapeños, to get them ready for the cheese filling. If you’ve never worked with hot peppers before, remember to wear gloves OR to not touch your eyes after handling the peppers and seeds. Just a word of caution, because those seeds contain the heat!

Cut off the stem end, then slice each jalapeño in half, lengthwise. Carefully remove all the seeds (I use a small spoon), then discard them (the seeds). Wash your hands well, then move forward with stuffing the peppers.

Six medium-sized jalapeño peppers are used to make poppers.The peppers are sliced lengthwise in half, then the seeds are removed (and discarded).

Time To Stuff The Jalapeño Peppers!

To make the filling, beat 4 oz. of cream cheese and 2 Tablespoons of grated cheddar cheese together in a medium bowl. Spoon the cheese mixture into the jalapeño halves, dividing it evenly between the 12 peppers. Place the stuffed peppers onto a lightly sprayed piece of aluminum foil placed on a baking sheet, leaving space between each popper.

Cream cheese and grated cheddar cheese are beaten together to make the filling.Jalapeño halves are stuffed with the cream cheese/cheddar filling.

Final Steps And Baking

Cut each of the 6 slices of bacon in half, width-wise (across the short side). You will be left with 12 half slices of bacon. Carefully wrap a piece of bacon around each stuffed pepper. I find it helpful to insert a toothpick or two through the bacon, as needed, to hold it secure on the pepper.

Mix ¼ cup of packed brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon of chili seasoning mix on a small plate. Roll the bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers around a bit in the spice mix until lightly coated on all sides. Place the seasoned poppers back onto the baking sheet.

Bake the bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers at 350°F for 18-20 minutes, OR until the bacon is firm and fully cooked through. NOTE: Thick cut bacon slices may require a couple more minutes baking time, due to their thickness. Remove from oven, once done. Before serving, REMEMBER TO REMOVE ALL TOOTHPICKS!

Half a slice of bacon is wrapped around each of the stuffed jalapeños.Bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers are coated in a brown sugar-chili mix seasoning before baking.The poppers resting after being removed from the oven after baking.

Time To Enjoy Some Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers!

Serve the bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers hot from the oven! The cheese filling will be gooey and melted and the born sugar-chili mix coated bacon will add to the amazing taste of these jalapeño poppers! YUM! They are such a delicious appetizer, and we love them!

Please note that these poppers are always best if eaten immediately following baking on the same day they’re first made. This type of finger food looks great on a platter, and you’ll see just how quickly they are gobbled up at a party or family get together! They are not too spicy, since the seeds were removed, so just about anyone will enjoy them!

Guinness Baked Cheese Dip

Guinness Baked Cheese Dip is a terrific appetizer, with 3 cheeses, caramelized onions, and Guinness beer! Served hot, you’re gonna love it!
Guinness Baked Cheese Dip is a terrific appetizer, with 3 cheeses, caramelized onions, and Guinness beer! Served hot, you're gonna love it!

My husband and I love to order hot appetizer dips (if available) at restaurants when we go out. Typically we order hot artichoke dip and stuff ourselves silly with the gooey cheesy dip. A while back I saw a recipe for a Baked Cheese Dip online which had caramelized onions and Guinness beer in it. Normally, I don’t even like the smell of beer, but this recipe sounded so delicious, so I knew we absolutely HAD to try it!

One of the cheeses used for this dip is called Dubliner cheese, which I’d never heard of before, but my husband found it easily at our Fred Meyer grocery store (Kroger). Dubliner cheese is a hard, light yellow-colored cheese that is slightly salty, nutty, and reminiscent of a flavorful Parmesan to the bite.

I made a couple slight changes to the original recipe, by adding shredded Parmesan cheese to the Dubliner and cream cheese already in the recipe. I also baked it in two 4″ cast iron skillets. That way my husband and I could have one, and I could give the other to our son (and his girlfriend), so they could enjoy it, too! Guinness Baked Cheese Dip is really quite delicious, and here’s how to make it:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Let’s Caramelize Those Onions!

Caramelizing onions takes time, but results in sweet, well-browned, amazing tasting onions, which bring great flavor the dip! To do this, melt butter on medium-low heat in a large skillet. Add thinly sliced onions and a nice big pinch of salt, and then toss, to coat the onions with the butter. It looks like LOTS of onions, but once caramelized, they’ll be greatly reduced in size.

Cook the onions slowly, giving them a toss often as they brown. Continue to cook, turning often until they are soft in texture and wonderfully browned. This will take about 20-25 minutes on medium-low heat. Just be patient, and let those onions caramelize – you’ll be glad you did! Remove the caramelized onions from the heat and let them cool completely.

Thinly sliced onions are cooked in melted butter in skillet.Caramelized onions are nicely browned in butter before adding to dip mixture.

Prepare The Dip Mixture

While the onions cool, prepare the dip mixture AND preheat your oven to 400°F. Place cream cheese, mayonnaise, PART of the Dubliner cheese, and PART of the Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl. Stir well, to fully combine ingredients. The remaining cheeses you set aside will be used to top the dip before baking.

Once the onions are cooled to room temperature, stir them into the dip. The onions need to be cooled so they don’t melt the cheeses! Add the Guinness beer and stir well, to fully incorporate it into the dip. This dip recipe uses ¼ cup of beer, and the alcohol in it will cook away in the oven, leaving only the flavor.

Three cheeses and mayonnaise are combined in a bowl.Caramelized onions are stirred into the dip mixture in the bowl.Guinness beer is added to the cheeses and onion dip mixture in bowl.

Final Step Before Baking

Spread the dip mixture into an 8″ cast iron (or oven-safe) skillet OR two 4″ cast iron skillets. You can also use an oven-safe baking dish, if desired, to make this baked dip. NOTE: For these photos I used two 4″ cast iron skillets to make two separate appetizer dishes! 

Once the dip is evenly spread in the skillet, sprinkle the top with the reserved shredded Dubliner and Parmesan cheeses. Now the Guinness Baked Cheese Dip is ready for the oven!

Place a sheet of aluminum foil under the skillet in the oven (to catch any spills). Cook the Guinness Baked Cheese Dip at 400° F. If using an 8″ skillet, you will need to bake the dip for 25-28 minutes. The two 4″ skillets will only need to bake for about 13-15 minutes.

When done, the Guinness Baked Cheese Dip will be browned on top and the cheese will be bubbly. Transfer the hot skillets to a wire rack, and let the dip cool for 10-12 minutes before serving! The baked cheese is VERY hot, and you don’t want anyone to burn themselves on “molten lava” hot cheese!

Serving The Guinness Baked Cheese Dip

After the cheese dip has cooled sufficiently, it is ready to serve. Serve the Guinness Baked Cheese Dip with crisp, sturdy crackers, toasted baguette slices, or pita chips. Crackers, baguette slices, etc. should be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the cheese dip as it is scooped up!

The cheesy onion dip tastes wonderful with it’s complex flavors, and I’m confident you and your family or friends will enjoy it!

    Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce

    Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce is a unique twist on good ol’ coleslaw! This cold, crunchy side salad is easy to make, and it tastes GREAT!
    Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce is a unique twist on good ol' coleslaw! This cold, crunchy side salad is easy to make, and it tastes GREAT!

    Do you enjoy coleslaw? We do, and love it… especially in the heat of summer! Coleslaw is easy to prepare, and it’s a wonderful side dish to prepare for a variety of meals or gatherings. This recipe is unique in that the coleslaw is covered in a delicious, flavor-packed Thai peanut dressing! The peanut sauce is the star of this salad and it makes the coleslaw taste absolutely delicious!

    It’s easy to make because the peanut dressing only takes a couple minutes to mix together, and the remaining prep is simply cutting veggies for the coleslaw. If you REALLY want to make this dish quickly, you can always purchase pre-made coleslaw bags at the grocery store. That way you will only have to do a small amount of chopping! Do whatever works best for you and your schedule.

    Once done, this side dish will make approximately six, one cup servings. The peanut sauce is added right before serving, so if you want to save half of the coleslaw for another meal, simply leave half the sauce off half the salad until you’re ready to serve it again. Keep any leftover salad and peanut sauce covered and refrigerated separately.

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    Make The Peanut Sauce

    Place all the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a medium bowl. The ingredients are peanut butter, lime juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, sriracha, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Whisk or stir these ingredients together until they are fully combined.

    Please Note: If you’re using regular creamy peanut butter, the sauce will be just a bit thicker than if you’re using all natural peanut butter. When done, set the peanut sauce aside.

    Ingredients for the peanut sauce are measured into a small bowl.Peanut sauce for the coleslaw is mixed together until fully combined.

    Prepping The Coleslaw

    Remove seeds from, then slice the red bell pepper into very thin matchstick shapes. Slice the carrots in the same way, but then give them a rough chop. You will also need to shred the cabbage, slice the green onions and chop the cilantro for the coleslaw. You can use a combination of green and red cabbage or just green cabbage (that’s how I make it).

    If using bagged coleslaw mix, remember to add the bell pepper, cilantro and green onions to the pre-mixed six cups of coleslaw.

    Red bell pepper is sliced into thin matchstick shapes for the coleslaw.Carrots are cut into matchsticks, then rough chopped for the coleslaw.

    Mix The Coleslaw Salad Together

    Place all of the salad ingredients into a medium sized serving bowl, and then toss, to combine all ingredients. This is the coleslaw part of the dish. Cover and refrigerate the coleslaw until you are ready to serve, because you want it to be very cold.

    DO NOT add the peanut sauce until just before serving! Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce is best when tossed with the sauce right before serving, because it helps keeps the cabbage crisp!

    Serving The Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce

    When ready to serve, toss the coleslaw with the peanut sauce to combine. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the Thai coleslaw in peanut sauce, and serve! The chopped peanuts on top really add nice flavor and extra crunch to the salad.

    Cuisine: Thai
    Keyword: Peanut Sauce, Thai coleslaw
    Servings: 6 (approx. 1 C. per serving)
    Calories Per Serving: 182 kcal
    Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
    Ingredients
    For Slaw:
    • 6 cups shredded cabbage (green or red/green combo) bagged or hand-shredded
    • 1 medium red bell pepper cut into thin matchsticks
    • 1 cup carrots (measure after cutting) cut in thin matchsticks, then chopped
    • ½ cup sliced green onions
    • cup cilantro (measure after chopping) chopped
    For Peanut Dressing:
    • cup natural creamy peanut butter can substitute regular creamy PB
    • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 2 Tablespoons honey
    • Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
    • Tablespoons rice vinegar
    • Tablespoons packed brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons minced ginger peeled, finely minced
    • 1 teaspoon sriracha
    • teaspoons sesame oil
    • 1 large clove garlic peeled, finely minced
    Garnish For Coleslaw:
    • 15 peanuts (approx. 4 teaspoons) rough chopped (regular or dry-roasted)
    Instructions
    1. Place peanut sauce ingredients in medium bowl. Whisk or stir until fully combined. Note: If using regular creamy peanut butter, sauce will be thicker than if using all natural peanut butter. When done, set sauce aside.

    2. Remove seeds from, then slice red bell pepper into very thin matchstick shapes. Slice carrots the same way, but then give them a rough chop. Shred cabbage, slice green onions and chop cilantro. NOTE: If using bagged coleslaw mix, add bell pepper, cilantro and green onions to pre-mixed 6 cups of coleslaw.

    3. Place salad ingredients into medium serving bowl, and toss, to combine. Cover and refrigerate coleslaw until ready to serve, because you want it very cold. NOTE: DO NOT add peanut sauce until right before serving (helps keep cabbage crisp)!

    4. When ready to serve, toss coleslaw with peanut sauce to combine. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top, and serve! Enjoy!

    Cannellini Bean Salad

    Cannellini Bean Salad with tomatoes, onion, olive oil, balsamic, vinegar and garlic is easy to make and delicious as a salad topper OR a dip!
    Cannellini Bean Salad with tomatoes, onion, olive oil, balsamic, vinegar and garlic is easy to make and delicious as a salad topper OR a dip!

    Today I want to share with you a recipe for cannellini bean salad. It’s SUPER EASY to make in just a couple minutes, and can be enjoyed as is, OR on top of mixed greens (delicious) OR served as a dip with pita chips, etc. However you choose to serve it, the flavors are wonderful, and I’m confident you’ll enjoy this simple salad!

    I found the original recipe in one of the cookbooks I own called “100 Days Of Real Food”, by Lisa Leake. It’s a great cookbook for those looking to cook with wholesome family-friendly foods. She serves this salad as a dip, which we love, but I’ve found I enjoy it the most served as a topper over a mixed green salad.

    The beans and the delicious dressing they are covered with make it a double whammy salad. Lots of protein and fiber is provided from the beans and tomatoes, onions, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar with seasoning create a salad dressing! It’s a win-win, no matter how you serve it! Here’s how to make this delicious vegetarian and gluten-free salad:

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    How To Make This EASY Cannellini Bean Salad

    Drain, and then rinse one can (approx. 15 oz.) of cannellini beans. After the beans are drained and rinsed well, place them into a small or medium-sized serving bowl.

    Cannellini beans are drained from the can and rinsed well before making the salad.

    Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl of drained cannellini beans. The remaining ingredients are tomato, red onion, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and black pepper. Stir, to fully combine these ingredients. 

    At this point the cannellini bean salad is finished and can be served immediately. Stir the ingredients a couple of times to keep the beans coated with the simple dressing. OPTIONAL: Cover the bowl and let the flavors “mingle” in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before serving, for even more flavor. Your choice!

    All the ingredients for the cannellini bean salad are combined in a bowl.

    Enjoy This Salad On Mixed Greens! 

    My favorite way to enjoy the cannellini bean salad is to place a portion on a bed of chilled mixed greens. Stir the beans before serving, and don’t forget to spoon some olive oil/balsamic dressing (from the bottom of the bowl) on top. 

    The beans provide fiber and protein, and the red onion, garlic and tomato add flavor, texture and color. Another added bonus is that the oil/balsamic mixture creates a simple, but delicious salad dressing, so there’s no need to add any. It’s delicious, just as it is!

    Cannellini bean salad is served as a topper for a mixed green salad.

    Cannellini Bean Salad Can Be Served As A DIP, Too!

    My husband enjoys the cannellini bean salad served as a dip, too! Just stir it well, and serve it with pita chips, crackers or pieces of firm, crusty bread! It’s a simple, yet tasty dip I’m sure you will enjoy! This easy salad (or dip) has a lot of flavor!

    Whip up Toasted Sweet Spiced Pecans in 5 minutes! Pan-roasted pecans are a little bit sweet and spicy, and are a yummy snack or salad topper!

    If you’re looking for a quick and easy snack or salad topper, may I share this recipe for Toasted Sweet Spiced Pecans with you today? I originally found the recipe quite a while ago, handwritten on an index card in an old recipe box. I made a couple slight changes to the recipe and the result is this simple recipe.

    The pan-roasted pecans are not too sweet and not too spicy, in case you are wondering. They ARE a delicious snack, and taste fantastic tossed onto the top of a mixed green salad. The little bit of crunch, plus the subtle seasoning make them a delicious treat.

    You will end up with 2 cups of toasted sweet spiced pecans, for a total of eight ¼ cup servings! Let me show you how easy they are to make, in just about 5 minutes!

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    Make The Spice Mixture

    In a small bowl, combine  the spices to make the seasoning mix. The seasonings used for this mix include sugar, paprika, chili powder, curry powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper, and are used in small amounts.

    Stir these spices together, and you will have your seasoning mix ready to go! See how simple this is so far?

    All of the spices to season the pecans are in a white bowl, ready to combine.A white bowl, filled with the spice mixture that will be used to season the toasted pecans.

    Toast The Pecans

    The next step is to pan-roast the pecans. Heat oil in a medium to large sized skillet on medium heat until very hot (but not smoking). Add the pecans to the skillet and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes, until they have browned. Try to make sure the pecans are evenly coated with the oil, so the seasoning mix will adhere when you add it.

    Pecan halves are lightly toasted in a skillet with hot oil.

    Add The Spices To Finish

    Once the pecans have toasted and are browned well, sprinkle the seasoning mix over the pecans, and then stir, so they are coated evenly. Continue to cook the toasted sweet spiced pecans for 1-2 minutes, then remove the skillet from the heat.

    Spices will be added to the oil-coated pecans in the skillet, then stirred to combine.Pecans are covered with seasoning, then stirred to combine while heating.

    Drain And Cool Toasted Pecans Before Serving

    Use a slotted spoon to remove the pecans from the skillet, and transfer them onto several layers of paper towels. The paper towels will help absorb any extra oil that remains on the pecans. Try to spread the pecans out just a bit, and let them cool slightly before serving.

    Time To Eat Some Toasted Sweet Spiced Pecans

    Once the toasted sweet spiced pecans have cooled for a couple minutes, they can be served. The pecans can be enjoyed, served warm or at room temperature. Both are delicious!

    We enjoy snacking on the pecans, but also love them sprinkled on top of a mixed green salad. You should try adding these to your favorite mixed green salad! The crunch and subtle seasoning of the pecans really add an extra layer of texture and flavor to the green salad and other toppings!

    Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

    Roasted sweet potato fries with a sweet/spicy seasoning are a yummy treat! They’re a great side dish, served with burgers and sandwiches.
    Roasted sweet potato fries with a sweet/spicy seasoning are a yummy treat! They're a great side dish, served with burgers and sandwiches.

    Do you like sweet potato fries? We sure do! There are many ways to make them, and this is the method I came up with to roast sweet potatoes fries for our meals. You will need to plan ahead, because the fries are first soaked in water for an hour before roasting to remove some of the starch from the potatoes. I know people lead very busy lives, so if you don’t have that kind of prep time, simply leave that step out, and your fries will still turn out really tasty!

    The oven-roasted fries have a wonderful spice mix on them. This seasoning is a little “sweet” thanks to brown sugar, and a tiny bit spicy, from chili powder, salt/pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. These ingredients give the roasted sweet potato fries really nice flavor! They pair wonderfully with burgers, hot dogs, hot sandwiches and a variety of meals, and I think you will enjoy them! Here’s how to make them:

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    Preparing The Sweet Potatoes

    Before beginning, preheat your oven to 450°F.  and line a large (13×9) baking sheet with parchment paper. You will want your oven to be really hot before adding the sweet potatoes.

    Now it’s time to prepare the sweet potatoes for roasting. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peel from the sweet potatoes. Once peeled, cut the sweet potatoes into thin slices lengthwise. The slices should be around 1/4″ thick. Once sliced, cut each piece into fries by cutting lengthwise again. Try to keep the size of the fries about the same, so they will roast more evenly.

    Sweet potatoes are peeled, then sliced into thin wedges.The sweet potatoes are cut into french fry-sized pieces.

    Soak the potatoes, covered with water, in a large bowl for about an hour. This will help to remove some of the starch from the sweet potatoes. This does take a while, but it really is inactive prep time. Let the sweet potato fries soak, and do whatever else you want while they “take a bath”. NOTE: AGAIN… I know we all have busy lives, so if you don’t have that kind of time, simply leave this soaking step out, but still toss the fries with the cornstarch. Your fries will still turn out really tasty!

    After soaking, drain the potato fries, and pat them dry with paper towels. Once dry, toss the fries with cornstarch (this helps them crisp up a bit more).

Toss the sweet potato fries with vegetable oil until coated, and then add the seasoning mix. Continue to mix until all the sweet potato fries are coated with the seasoning mix.

    Spices are combined in bowl to season the roasted sweet potato fries before cooking.Spice mixture covers the sweet potato fries.Lay the seasoned fries out on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Be sure to keep them all in a single layer for best results when roasting.

    Ingredients
    • 2 medium sweet potatoes
    • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
    • ½ teaspoon brown sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
    • ¼ teaspoon paprika
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 450°F.  Line a large (13x9) baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2. Remove peel from sweet potatoes. Cut sweet potatoes into ¼" slices lengthwise. Slice each of these wedges into fries by cutting lengthwise again. Keep fry size about the same, so they'll roast evenly.

    3. Soak fries covered with water, in a large bowl for about an hour. This helps remove some starch from the potatoes. NOTE: We all have busy lives, so if you don't have that kind of time, simply leave the soaking step out, but still toss the fries with the cornstarch. Your fries will still turn out really tasty! After soaking, drain the fries; pat dry with paper towels. Toss fries with cornstarch (this helps them crisp).

    4. In a small bowl, stir/combine chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and brown sugar. Toss sweet potato fries with vegetable oil until coated. Add seasoning mix. Continue to stir until fries are coated with seasoning.

    5. Lay seasoned fries in single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 450°F. for 20-23 minutes, flipping them over halfway through roasting. When done, roasted sweet potato fries should be slightly browned, a bit crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Serve, and enjoy!

    Easy Smoky Almonds

    Need a simple, delicious appetizer, snack or food gift? Make a batch of Easy Smoky Almonds, covered in sauce, and roasted to perfection!

    Years ago I found a recipe for smoked almonds and jotted the recipe down on a 3×5″ index card. I’m not sure of the source for the original recipe, since I didn’t write it down at the time. The recipe card was put into my old, well-worn recipe box, where it sat for years.  After re-discovering it, I knew I had to make these yummy snacks again (and take photos).

    The recipe is simple. Unblanched almonds are mixed with a simple mixture of Liquid Smoke, water, and vegetable oil. After being covered with flavoring, they are roasted in the oven for 20-25 minutes. They come out of the oven wonderfully browned and crunchy! After roasting, the almonds are then lightly salted. They come out of the oven wonderfully browned and crunchy! YUM!

    It really is super simple to make this recipe. The recipe as written will make one cup of Easy Smoky Almonds. However, the recipe is super easy to double or triple, depending on the amount of almonds you want. They’re a great snack (we love to munch on them)! It’s also fun to put out a bowl of the smoky almonds with other appetizers. You can also put them in a cute container and give them as a tasty food gift for celebrations or holidays.

    Prepare The Almonds For Roasting

    First, you will need to preheat your oven to 300°F. You will want the oven nice and hot, since it hardly takes any time to prepare the almonds for roasting.

    In a small bowl, combine the liquid smoke and water. Most grocery stores sell Liquid Smoke. It is a highly concentrated liquid that is quite smoky flavored. This mixture is what will flavor the almonds well.

    Water and liquid smoke are combined to help flavor almonds.

    Place unblanched, unsalted almonds in a bowl, and pour the Liquid Smoke and water mixture over them. Stir well, to ensure all the almonds are coated. Once they are covered with the smoky flavoring, add a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Stir the almonds again, to fully coat them with oil.

    A mixture of liquid smoke and water is poured onto the unblanched almonds in a bowl.A teaspoon of vegetable oil is added to the smoky flavored almonds.

    Ready For The Oven

    Cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper (or aluminum foil). Spread the almonds out on the paper in a single layer, and put the almonds into a preheated oven. Bake at 300°F. for 20-25 minutes. STIR THE ALMONDS A COUPLE TIMES DURING THE ROASTING TIME!

    When done, the almonds will be crunchy and nicely browned. Remove the baking sheet of almonds from the oven.

    A Little Salt For Added Flavor!

    Let’s Make This Easy Parmesan Garlic Cheese Ball!

    Place softened cream cheese, chopped pimientos, minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, and sliced green onions in a mixing bowl. Use a fork to mix these ingredients together (until fully combined). **NOTE: The reason the cream cheese needs to be softened is so it will mix much easier with the other ingredients.

    Cream cheese, pimientos, Parmesan, garlic and green onions are combined in bowl.

    Line a small ramekin with plastic wrap, leaving the plastic extended far past the edges of the dish. Place the cheese ball mixture firmly into the ramekin, and pack it down with a spoon. Once filled, cover it tightly with the remaining plastic wrap, then press down to flatten and compact the top of the cheese mixture.

    Place the Parmesan garlic cheese ball into the refrigerator and let it chill for at least two hours, for best results.

    Cheese ball mixture is molded into a container before being refrigerated.Covered with plastic and pressure applied, the cheese ball is ready for the refrigerator.

    Serving The Parmesan Garlic Cheese Ball

    After the Parmesan garlic cheese ball has been refrigerated for at least two hours, it is ready to serve! Unwrap the cheese ball, and carefully invert it (turn upside down) onto a serving plate (so the flat side is facing down).

    Serve the cheese ball with an assortment of crisp crackers, a knife to spread it with, and enjoy the great flavor of this appetizer or snack!
