Oven fries and homemade potato seasoning

¬†Many of us like potato fries/chips, and I’m not an¬†exception. ūüėÄ Yes, I know that they are not healthy.. But if your diet is balanced and healthful most of the time, you can have one cheat day during a week or so. However, it’s certainly preferable to¬†make your own¬†homemade¬†fries. And I mean roasted fries¬†instead of those deep-fried and greasy. My secret to great and tasty fries is a special spice mix, that I prepare myself: for that you need to combine¬†rosemary, turmeric, paprika and some other spices (look at the recipe below). This seasoning¬†suits perfectly to both regular and sweet potatoes. Once tried, you might want to make a larger jar next time! ūüėČOven roasted potato fries
