I have a couple of food vices in my life at the moment: french fries, and cookie butter. Now that I have the art of french fries under my belt, cookie butter is the next challenge in my oh-so-sophisticated *cough cough* culinary repertoire. Now, I’m just spitballing here, but I’m thinking lemon sage cookie butter layered into a lemon pop, peanut butter cookie butter baked in warm brownies, key lime cookie butter cups. I can already feel my self control weakening.
Speaking of questionable self control: potatoes. White potatoes have gotten a bad wrap, which makes sense. I mean, the way they usually get into our bodies is through an uncontrolled binge of deep-fried, crunchy, salty, addicting, preservative-filled overload, lacking in nutrition and doing nothing but fueling our growing appetites. But potatoes, are a whole food, aren’t they? And french fries, done right, are just sliced & baked potatoes. So make your own and avoid that, “should I really be eating this?” question. Now remember: eat them with your fingers and dip them in everything.
