Homemade Baked French Fries

It has probably been close to a year since Eric and I made homemade French fries. We used to do it all the time. They require a little more prep than just roasting diced potatoes, but they are worth it. Much better than the frozen ones you buy at the store. And healthier than the fries at fast food joints (though those are yummy).
Homemade fries and fish sticks

Potatoes (I've used russet, white, red, just whatever I've had on hand)
olive oil (vegetable or canola oil works too)
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
any other season you'd like (We usually do garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Grated Parmesan is really good too!)

Turn oven to broil.

Cut potatoes into sticks. Rather than trying to explain how to cut a potato into fries, here is a video for you. It really isn't that difficult. Mix olive oil (about 1 tablespoon for every large potato) and seasonings in a small bowl. Toss with fries.

Place the fries in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes then flip the fries and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until the fries are crisp.
