I have two issues with potato chips, though. First, they’re really bad for you. Not only are they really fatty, but like all packaged foods, they also usually contain a lot of crap that is totally unnecessary. I hate it when I can’t pronounce ingredients. Second, they’re really salty. Salt isn’t good for you of course, but I legitimately don’t like it when chips are super salty.
So, I decided to test out this microwave potato chip recipe, which is originally from The Kitchn. At least I have a little control over the ingredients if I make them at home! I was definitely skeptical about microwaving potatoes to make chips, though. It just sounds like like won’t work.
Pleasant surprise: This is an excellent recipe! I did have one minor complaint, but I would totally make these microwave potato chips again.
With the Super Bowl coming up in a few days there are lots of parties being planned. I pinned this recipe from Taste of Home. The Pizza Wonton cup appetizer recipe can be added to your list.
Back in July I posted a Sausage Wonton Cup recipe that is very similar just using some different ingredients in the filling. The step for baking the wonton is the same. It calls for turkey sausage, but you can use whatever kind you like. I happened to have leftover fresh pork sausage in the refrigerator so I used that. And I always use what I have on hand or is left in the refrigerator.
Let’s take a look at how to make this recipe – and at the end, you can find even more links to great party-friendly foods perfect for Super Bowl Sunday.
Exciting news readers! I recently turned one of my biggest freelance clients into a full time position within the company! Now I have to wake up at a normal time every weekday (okay, that’s not so exciting), put on my big girl pants, and go off to work. But wait! Doesn’t this mean you don’t have as much time for testing out new recipes and crafts Jess?!?!
Not at all! In fact, it helps keep me more motivated to test things out! The guy who’s desk is next to mine has a reputation in the office for snacking on everything and anything he can get his hand on in the office. Whenever someone brings something in, he’s usually the first to come sample the goodies. Last week I pulled up my Pinterest board of recipes to test out on my phone and let him pick something out for me to test out and bring in the next day. It’s good motivation to keep me going after a long day because if I didn’t come to the office the next morning with the food I’d promised, I’d surely hear about it all day.
What did he pick? Snickedoodle Muffins, orginally pinned by Alaxandria Marsh from eat me, delicious. And I gotta give my co-worker some credit. He picked out a WINNER. These turned out awesome and the ladies in the office only had good things to say.
Now that we’re knee-deep in football season (and baseball season for that matter), I wanted to share another great dip recipe to serve at your next tailgate or game day party. Even if it’s just you vegging in front of the couch watching the game by yourself, this Spinach Artichoke Dip makes it a party! Woo!
And if you’re not a sports-y type of person, I won’t tell if you have an Animal Planet or TLC or Bravo party with this dip instead. Woo parties!
(So much wooing! That’s how you know this dip is good!)
As you may recall, I already posted this Cold Crab Dip recipe, which is perfect for parties, and I highly suggest bringing today’s recipe to the party as well. Guest love options, and this is an especially good choice if you have friends who are vegetarian or just not into seafood.
Okay, well our grandmother doesn’t love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese. She doesn’t like cheese at all. She’s weird.
I liked the end result, but be warned – this recipe makes a ton of queso. It would be perfect for a party, just like this crab dip recipe, but for me, a lot of it went to waste because there’s only so much cheese one person can eat!
Sometimes, you need a quick recipe that holds up well as you travel to a party. When I find myself in that situation, my answer is often to bring a dip. Dips get better as the ingredients meld together, and they’re definitely crowd-pleasers.
Oh, and did I mention how gosh darn easy they are? Love it.
Last weekend, I headed to beautiful State College, Pennsylvania for some awesome Penn State tailgating with my best friends. I’ve known most of these guys and gals since kindergarten (yes, really!), so it’s always a good time when we get together! I decided to make a bunch of dips to take to the game, and this cold crab dip from Paula Deen was definitely one I’ve been meaning to pinter-test out.
Thanks goes out to Jennifer Pickard for pinning this recipe so it showed up in my stream!
I still do, actually. Nuts do not belong in brownies.
But I’ve grown up a bit and can admit that sugared pecans are downright delicious. My mother is probably cringing to hear this because it means that the next time there’s pecan pie in her house (one of her favorite desserts of all time), she has to share!
I saw this recipe for Jack Daniels Pecans pinned by Morgan Melim, and I just had to try them. They’ll be perfect for tailgating this fall (go Penn State!) and would also be great on top of a cheesecake.
You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last.
You can put these in the oven while you are eating dinner and they will be ready for your dessert. The rolls only take about 10 minutes to bake. They’re really great when they’re warm, right out of the oven
