For as long as I can remember french fries have been my favorite food.
If I were stranded on an island and could only have one food it would be...french fries.
As a toddler I was a very picky eater and my mother, father, sister and grandfather took turns making late night McDonalds runs, in hopes that they could fill my belly with an order of french fries, and then actually sleep through the night.
I can rate all fast food restaurants fries and although. I like the battered, steak cut, and shoestring, it is very hard to beat a McDonalds fry.
Recently I learned how to cut a fresh potato into strips and fry it to perfection. I am in heaven. I had attempted this through the years but there are two important steps that I needed to know. I will be sharing those two essential tips in the coming days. Plus I've learned how to make french fry dip. Have you ever heard of such? After years of worshiping the french fry I learned that many do use this mixture of condiments to enhance the flavor of fried spuds.
The greatest part about both of these recipes is that they are made from simple ingredients. It is so much easier to keep a kitchen stocked, and ready to make dinner when you cook with the basics. Through the years, my collection of meals which rely on fresh and non-processed foods has grown. I've learned that one can replace cream of
mushjunk mushroom soup with just a few items that you probably already have in your cabinet.
Are you interested in learning to cook with whole, natural, and fresh foods? Would you like to learn some of the basics that make this eating and cooking style more user friendly? Do you already cook like this and would you be interested in helping others to learn this skill?
I am going to be kicking off a "Cooking with the Basics" live one hour chat in the Hammock Tracks Forum, in the days to come. If you are interested, or if you'd like to hear more about this please leave a comment below.
