There is a lot I like about living on Long Island. I am surrounded by beautiful ocean beaches and live in close proximity to Manhattan.  For me, that's the best of both worlds.  On a recent visit to the MoMA/Museum of Modern Art, my daughter purchased a Roy Lichtenstein print called 
Drowning Girl. 

This print is modern, fun & edgy.  I wanted a frame that would show it off.  I had a bunch of used frames laying around my workroom collecting dust,  none of them worked with this piece of art.  The colors were all wrong.  So being the mastermind I am, I took out a can of spray paint and gave one of the frames a nice shiny coat of black!
The next thing I did was...... I added two eye hooks to the top of the frame.  I tied a broken necklace chain that was my daughter's through the eye hooks.  I hammered a nail in the wall and hung the artwork in her bedroom!


Now the frame works to show the personality of the artwork.  

All it takes to dramatically change the look of a frame is a little spray paint and a unique way of hanging it.

Hey friends,  Today I'm talking about potatoes.  I love potatoes! Mashed, fried, baked, roasted...... 
you name it!!  I love them all... 

1.5 lbs honey gold potatoes 
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley

These potatoes are cooked at a high temperature which makes them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are the ultimate alternative to french fries.

 1.5 lb bag of Honey Gold Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Clean the potatoes by rinsing them off in a colander.

Slice the potatoes in quarters

Place in a bowl add Olive oil, salt, and pepper; toss until the potatoes are coated.

Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread them out into one layer.  Roast in the oven for 45 minutes or until browned and crisp.  Flip once during the cooking time for even browning.

Place in a bowl 
sprinkle dried parsley on top and serve.
