Unfried French Fries

These fries are light, tasty, and easy.

5 baking potatoes
Vegetable Oil Cooking Spray
2 large egg whites
1 tablespoon cajun spice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the potatoes so they look like french fries. Coat a baking sheet with vegetable spray. Combine the egg whites and cajun spice in a bowl. Add the potatoes and mix to coat. Pour the coated potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet and spread them out into a single layer, leaving a little space between. (I always sprinkle a little cajun spice on top after I do this. It makes them spicier. If you don't like too much spice, you might not want to add any extra.) Place the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the fries are crispy, turning them every 10 minutes with a spatula so that they brown evenly. Serve immediately.

Mormon Slush

I just made this for a group of teenage girls, and they loved it. They were asking for the recipe. It really is delicious!

1 1/4 cups orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 crushed bananas
2 cups pineapple juice
3 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 bottle gingerale

Mix all ingredients except for gingerale. I blended the banana with the pineapple juice to make it nice and smooth before mixing with the other ingredients. Freeze mixture. Take mixture from freezer about an hour before ready to serve so it becomes a slush. Mix the slush with gingerale and serve. This serves about 20-25 people. (It filled a large punch bowl.)
