Oven Fries (aka Momma Fries)

The boys like to call these Momma Fries. I guess because they don't come from a bag in the freezer, but from Momma.


1. 5-6 large baking potatoes -peeled and cut length wise into uniform "strips" (like large french fries)
2. 1/3 cup olive oil
3. 1 tsp. paprika
4. 1/2 tsp. chili powder
5. 1 tsp. garlic powder
6. 1/2 tsp. onion powder
7. salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
3. Add cut potatoes and mix together (with your hands) until potatoes are evenly coated.
4. Place potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
5. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 450 degrees F turning once half way through baking.

2. 1/2 cup of corn meal
3. 1/2 cup tapioca flour
4. 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
5. 1 tsp. honey

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and in a bowl mix together the brown rice flour, corn meal and tapioca flour.
2. Add in vinegar, honey, seasoning and yeast. Pour water into mixture a little at a time and stir together. Only use enough water to combine all the ingredients (usually about 1/2-3/4 cup of the water).
3. Once combined, put dough mixture on a greased pizza sheet. Sprinkle with a little brown rice flour and push dough into the shape of the crust.
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes in oven. Remove crust and top with your favorite toppings (we usually use pizza sauce and safe pepperoni).
5. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15-18 minutes or until done.
