5 Simple Ways to Serve Potatoes

Potato oven fries

OVEN “FRIES”: Use one large or two medium potatoes per person (preferably red-skinned, Yukon gold,  or other firm-fleshed variety). Peel the potatoes and cut them into long, 1/2-inch thick fry-shaped strips. Combine them in a large mixing bowl with a modest amount of light olive oil and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with a little salt. Transfer to a nonstick baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 425º F. oven, stirring gently every 10 minutes, until the potatoes are crisp and lightly browned, about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve at once. Note, this is also an excellent way to serve sweet potatoes. more→

Piña Colada Squares

These treats aren’t too sweet if you use unsweetened coconut. Alternatively, you can substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of sweetened coconut for part of the unsweetened coconut and omit the confectioners sugar. If you don’t have dark rum, use ½ to 1 teaspoon rum extract and make up the rest of the liquid (to equal the 1 tablespoon) with pineapple juice or a little water or almond milk.
