    These are so easy and fun you have to try them

    Faux "Fries" with Raspberry "Ketchup”

    Pound Cake "Fries"

    1 loaf of pound cake (or more depending on how many "Fries" you want to make)
    1 cardboard French fry container (ask politely and you shall receive

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

    Trim off a thin layer of the cake’s brown exterior crust. Then cut pound cake lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices.

    Turn slices on their side and cut into 1/4-inch strips. Trim to 4 to 5 inches in length (if this sounds confusing, just remember, you are creating French fry-shaped strips).

    Arrange strips on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until browned on top and bottom. Turn strips and bake for approximately 4 more minutes, or until remaining two sides are browned. Let cool, then arrange in fries container.

    Raspberry "Ketchup"

    1 12-ounce bag frozen raspberries, thawed, or 2 cups of fresh raspberries
    2 tablespoons of confectionery (powdered) sugar
    1 empty catsup squeeze bottle

    Place raspberries in a blender or food processor, and puree (add a few tablespoons of water, or lemon juice, if necessary, to facilitate blending).

    Add sugar, one teaspoon at a time, to taste—until tartness is gone.

    Place raspberry puree in a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Use a rubber spatula to force the puree through the strainer. Discard the seeds and transfer the puree to the squeeze bottle. Serve alongside "fries".
