Currently craving: Oven-baked french fries

Recipe and image via Naturally Ella

If there's one thing I could eat each and every day (except for chocolate, obviously), it's french fries. Homemade, fast food, restaurant...anything goes. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, coated in salt or/and herbs, with a dollop of ketchup or Tartar sauce...oh my. I would love to start making them regularly at home, but the idea of splurging on a deep fryer doesn't really seem that much appealing to me. My counter top space isn't unlimited, and besides french fries (and maybe some fried mozza sticks) I don't really see much use for it. Plus, I know that if I caved in and splurged on one, I'm pretty sure my palate would be delighted, but my waistline slightly less so.

So, right now, I'm on the market for the perfect baked potato fry recipe. If you have one, please send it my way. In the meantime, you can find me experimenting in my kitchen with these ones:

This one wins the prize for the best tutorial. I would never have guessed that sticking the raw potatoes into cold water could make such a big difference! (via Layers of happiness)

Home envy: The kitchen dreams are made of

Images by Stephani Buchman for Style me Pretty

I know that the white kitchens are a bit of a cliché right now, but honestly, I don't care. I may be obsessing over perfectly styled white kitchens as much as the next gal, but guys, this one (!!!). This one really stopped me in my tracks. The perfect balance between white, black and an occasional pop of pink (tired of peonies, already?) represents everything I'm currently striving for in my own kitchen. I'm sorry for the brevity of today's post, but I'm pretty speechless. I'll just continue staring at this perfectly designed and styled space, taking notes diligently.

Happy Monday!
