Have you ever tried adding lots of fresh rosemary to your fries? Some fancy restaurants do this, and it is incredibly delicious! Try out this recipe to make your fries a little more gourmet—with the added benefits of essential oils!
Bake the potato fries for 30–35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile, add the rosemary essential oil and garlic to the remaining olive oil in the large bowl. Stir to combine, and set aside to allow the rosemary oil to infuse the olive oil.
Once the potatoes have finished cooking and are just starting to crisp up, remove them from the oven and put them back in the large bowl. Carefully stir to coat the potatoes with the flavored olive oil; then place them back on the baking sheet, and spread them in a single layer.
Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the fries, and place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until crispy/browned to your preference.
Serve immediately. These taste fantastic with the Creamy Basil Dip (recipe below).

Have you tried hasselback potatoes yet? They are a lot like baked potatoes, but rather than piercing the potatoes with a fork, you cut slices in them with a knife, then fill the slices with yummy ingredients either before or after baking them. When making hasselback potatoes with essential oils, it’s best to add the oils after baking the potatoes so you don’t lose the health benefits of the oils.
Start by slicing the potatoes, drizzling them with olive oil, and sprinkling salt and pepper on top before baking them. While they bake, mix up the herb butter by melting butter and stirring in the essential oils. If you happen to taste the herb butter, you may find the essential oils to be a bit strong. Just trust us, though—the final product tastes delicious!
When the potatoes are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, pull them out of the oven. Then, while they are still hot, drizzle on the herb butter. Make sure to get it in between the slices. Continue reading →
Do you love the smell of fresh baked bread? We do too! This recipe is incredibly simple and easy to make, especially if you prepare it the day before baking it! You could speed up this recipe by increasing the amount of yeast, but we recommend letting it sit overnight and taking advantage of the benefits of sourdough fermentation.
Salads make a great lunch meal or a healthy side dish for dinner. A salad can be quite nutritious and easy to make. Here are some tips for quickly making easy, healthy salads:
While at the grocery store, grab the baby spinach or lettuce options that are already pre-washed.
Make sure to also buy salad toppings such as carrots, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, onions, peppers, tomatoes, peas, beans, nuts, and dried or fresh fruit.
As soon as you get home, wash and cut as many toppings as you can. Combine them into small bags (excluding items such as cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, etc.) for a quick salad.
Make your own dressing (below is a recipe you can start with), and divide it into small condiment containers.
When it comes time to eat, just throw some spinach or lettuce on your plate, add a bag of toppings, add extra toppings that are better not prepared ahead of time, such as cheese, tomatoes, fresh fruit, etc., and add a small container of your homemade dressing.
Then, sit back and enjoy this healthy meal that only took a few minutes to prepare!
