Crispy Baked Fries with Garlic Rosemary Aioli

Crispy Baked Fries with Garlic Rosemary Aioli

Alex and my first date was awkward. We were 19 and he got up the courage to ask me to dinner. I don’t remember much, but I remember two things: one, that I was quite sure there would be no second date. The second was what we ordered: for him, angel hair pasta with tomatoes; for me, a huge double bacon cheeseburger with french fries. Talk about role reversal! It makes me giggle to this day to think of me gobbling down a huge burger while Alex daintily twirls his pasta…except there was nothing dainty about Alex’s eating habits at age 19!
