Crispy smashed potatoes: Boil potatoes in water until completely cooked through (can poke all the way in easily). Let cool for 10min. Smash the potatoes w/ a cup, coat with olive oil and spices. Bake for another 15min on top rack, then 30min in middle rack.
DIY Furniture from stock cabinets, I've used this idea to create a mini mud room, a built in banquette, and a GINORMOUS entertainment center. This is so easy, much cheaper than buying the prefab junk they sell in the store (better quality too) and the end result is always awesome!!! You can paint or stain the finished product and add just about any embellishment your heart desires. LOVE this!
