Homemade Potato Chips


Here's an awesome tasting Homemade Potato Chips recipe from Dean and Deluca's recipe book. It's really easy to make, peel and thinly slice a couple of good sized russet potatoes, which I am sure is readily available in your kitchen. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how much chips (or crisps) you can yield from those 2 spuds! This homemade chips recipe is garlic flavored, impossible to stop munching after the first one! Anyway, if garlic flavored chips is not your deal, you can always substitute it with sea salt, black pepper, or some other seasoning of your choice. Enjoy!


Homemade Garlic Potato Chips

Ingredients

2 Medium or 1 Large Russet Potatoes, peeled
¼ Cup Olive Oil
4 Garlic Cloves, finely minced
Vegetable Oil for frying
2 tsp Sea Salt

Method

With a mandoline, slice potato into rounds as thin as possible. Rinse rounds with cold water until water runs clear, and dry potatoes thoroughly on paper towels.

In a small saucepan heat olive oil and garlic on low heat until garlic aroma is released, about 5 minutes. Place garlic and oil in blender and puree.

Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan to 325˚F. Fry potatoes slices in several batches, stirring frequently with a slotted spoon, about 7 to 8 minutes. Place chips on paper towels to dry and sprinkle immediately with salt. Brush lightly with garlic oil. Serve immediately.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
