LOADED OVEN FRIES RECIPE

loaded oven fries | designlovefest

i love french fries. i  eat them often and am picky when it comes to the quality: crispy but not crunchy, not too thin or thick, and always served with something to dip them in. i never make them at home because i don’t like the way oven fries turn out, they are often soggy and not cooked properly through the center. but, i’m here to give you two life changing oven fry techniques – 1. cut them and then soak them in water for at least an hour. then rinse and let them dry completely. 2. don’t over oil them before baking. the extra oil keeps them from crisping up. do those two things and you’ll have perfect fries (but still not as good as mcdonalds fries)- joanie

what you’ll need:
• 4 large russet potatoes
• 1 bunch fresh parsley
• few springs of oregano
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon garlic powder
• 1 tablespoon onion powder
• 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
• 3 garlic cloves minced
• 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
• 2 limes sliced into wedges

• preheat oven to 350. wash and thinly slice 5 large russet potatoes. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes with olive oil (add more oil as needed), garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley flakes and minced garlic. we recommend not adding salt to the seasoning as the parmesan and spicy garlic drizzle will have plenty.

• place parchment paper over a baking sheet and lay the seasoned fries in a single layer (do not overlap). bake for 35 -40 minutes or until golden brown.

fall decor | designlovefest

fall is finally here and i’m craving hot chocolate, a netflix marathon, and bundling up under a cozy throw blanket. as the seasons change and winter weather rolls in, add some cozy comfort into your home. a few ideas to add that extra coziness to your home: put fluffy throw pillows on your sofa, drape a plush throw over your favorite seat, or layer rugs on rugs for an extra cozy contrast. pair plush textured throws with your typical decor for a chic sophisticated look that will last all winter. pile on the pillows and throws this weekend! – erika
