i find that planning ahead is my key to baking! if i´m short on time, i end up frying something up (granted, stir frying with very little oil) on the skillet. but just that extra 15 minutes or so gives time for the oven. can definitely save on calories!!
baked is always better. Try this: thinly slice 1 baking potato, put on a cookie sheet which has been sprayed with pam, lightly salt & bake at 400 until they are crispy.

hungry girl site has all kinds of ideas for faux frying. i have tried many and to tell you the truth we don't miss the fried food. now i won't say on occasion i won't make fried chicken(i live in alabama), but i don't do it often and i find when i eat fat like that it just sits in my stomach. you get used to no oil.
There is a wonderful cook book out there on this topic. Fast Food Fix by Devin Alexander. There are recipes for so many things, tacos, pizza, burgers, fries, onion rings, breakfast items, awesome chicken, fish and even a few desserts. If you are a fan of these types of foods, I highly recommend this book.
I prefer mine baked too! I don't even have deep fryer at home. An obvious other option is grilled vs fried. Most fast food restaurants fry their burgers so they baste in their own fat. Grilling is a much healthier alternative!
How much healthier are frozen french fries, baked with no oil, instead of fried? I think they actually taste better baked in the oven and I don't have that heavy feeling like I would if they were fried in oil. What are some other ways to enjoy fast food favorites by cooking them the healthy way? I'd love to hear your ideas!
