So recently I bought some sweet potato fries from Costco. I'm not really a vegetable person, and rarely have I enjoyed sweet potatoes, but my brother Dave tipped me off to these and they are really, really good. I had some left over, so when we were pulling out leftover potatoes to fry up on Saturday morning to go with our omelettes, I pulled these out and fried them up. They were so great, that I may never go back to regular fried potatoes with my breakfast. :) P.S. The omelette was good, too.
My husband really loves cherry pie, and for years and years I used store-bought crusts. Once, though, I wanted to be extra domestic and make the crust instead of just buying one at the store. I turned to Martha Stewart's Pate Brisee (french for pie crust) recipe and was so impressed with the outcome and relative ease, that I haven't used a store bought crust since. I usually double the recipe and freeze half, so that I have some on hand. You can find the recipe on marthastewart.com.
