My kids like making snacks every now and then. These crinkly fries are easy and fun to make, and much better than potato chips from the store!
3 baking potatoes
3 Tbl butter
any type of seasoning salt, for example: Mrs. Dash, lemon pepper seasoning, herb seasoning, etc.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. After scrubbing potatoes with a vegetable brush, cut with a crinkle cutter or a sharp knife leaving the peel on. Put the potato slices into a large Ziploc bag. Melt the butter and add seasoning to it, mix together. Pour into the bag and mix with the potatoes to coat. Add as much or as little seasoning as you want. Shake well.
Layer the potatoes on a shallow pan or cookie sheet in a single layer. Put in oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until lightly brown and tender. Longer if you want them crispy. Turn the potatoes halfway through the baking process.

With growing boys I feel like I am always running to the grocery store trying to keep our shelves stocked. Trying to keep the grocery budget contained and the boys satisfied is always something I’m working on. I love when I can make things from scratch and stretch our dollars. My boys love bread and toast so when I came across a recipe for English Muffin Bread, I thought this is one I have to give a try.
It’s an easy recipe to pull together and only requires a few ingredients. It makes excellent toast and this morning as my crew consumed their breakfast they all agreed this is a recipe we should make again.
I enjoyed this recipe because it was so easy to make and you get four loaves out of it. I figure a 5 pound bag of flour cost about $2.00 and that contains about 20 cups of flour. This is where a majority of your cost are when making this recipe. So for a little over $2.00 you get 4 loaves as opposed to buying english muffins for around $2.00 for 6 english muffins.
Recipe : English Muffin Bread
5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packages yeast
2 Tablespoons salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
11 cups flour
Mix all ingredients together in a mixer or larger bowl. Let stand until doubled or it reaches the brim of the bowl. Grease 4 bread pans and distribute dough in to each pan. Let rise until it has reached the top of the bread pan. Place in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Bake for 35 mins, pull bread out and brush with butter. Bake for another 10 mins or until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy.
