  • 6 Delicious things you can do to potatoes

    Potatoes are a staple in households all over America. If you're bored with this old standby, though, try experimenting with some of these fresh takes on a classic.

    1. Boil, smash, and bake 'em!

    All you'll need for this method are some potatoes, olive oil, salt, black pepper, and herb of your choosing. Simply boil the potatoes, smash them with a potato masher on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and seasonings, and bake.

    2. Thinly slice and cover with cheese

  • Warm apples with vanilla cream sauce

    Makes 4 servings

    I usually prepare this dessert just before serving because I love the aroma in my kitchen as the apples cook. But, I have found that it can be made early in the day, refrigerated in a covered container, and reheated in the microwave for about 2 minutes on HIGH.

  • Chocolate-filled baked French toast sandwiches

    Makes 6 sandwiches (6 servings)

    These sweet sandwiches are a bit too substantial for dessert after a full meal, but just right for a hearty snack. The combination of melted dark chocolate and crispy bread makes it a late-night favorite at my home. Try the jam variation for brunch. Be sure to plan ahead to allow time for the dish to stand before baking.

  • Sweet potato fritters

    1 pound sweet potatoes; peeled and coarsely shredded
