If you are a fan of my page on Facebook, you may have seen a few weeks ago that I posted a link to the New York Times, with an idea for oven fries. The claim was that by heating the pan first, the potatoes will get crispier. Sounded good. Don't do it!! I am going back to my oven fries(see sidebar for recipe)! They were a total bust last night. For whatever reason, they stuck to the pan and I was scraping potatoes off the pan to try and come up with enough to feed the crew. And they weren't nearly as crispy as my recipe. :( So, the moral of the story is.... if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!
