I am back! I have not been posting much during my pregnancy because 1. I haven’t really been experimenting with new recipes and 2. I have just been too tired! But, a lot has been going on…
Our not-so-little puppy has been growing like a weed over the past several months. At 8 months she reached a whopping 65 pounds – and still growing.
Willa has made a new friend!
**notice the water all over the patio. They had fun, to say the least.
And Bernie turned 29 again! 🙂
On to the fries…
These fries deserve a post, and get a rave review. I have done baked fries before, but these do not taste baked – they taste like the real thing. Bernie thinks they taste like 5 Guys Burgers & Fries french fries, which are some of the worst (nutrition-wise) fries out there – but delicious. And, considering my eating habits during pregnancy and new found love for all things greasy, these were right on the money – without the grease or guilt (not that I have been experiencing any guilt latetly)!

Best baked fries ever! I did try these re-heated and they are just not the same, so definitely serve out of the oven!
