My New Little Obsession...

I found this little gadget at Bed, Bath & Beyond...I have tried to make potato chips in the microwave before....but they never came out right. 
I even bought a Pampered Chef version...but no luck for me.

This little guy works perfectly!
Micro Chip Crisp'r

You just slice your potato and place it on this holder (holds 24 slices at a time)

It even has a built in mini mandolin slicer to get just the right thickness!
And you don't have to dry the slices at all....
Pop in the microwave for 5 mins...and

Your own potato chips....healthy and NOT FRIED!
You can add a spray of olive oil...or some sea salt...garlic...vinegar...whatever you want!

They are totally you just took them out of a bag!
And it is only $5.99!

Yummy Goodness...

Stay Cozy,

Chocolate Chip Day!

Chocolate chips are a required ingredient in chocolate chip cookies which were invented in 1937 when a woman named Ruth Wakefield of the Toll House Inn added cut-up chunks of a semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bar to a cookie recipe. The cookies were a huge success, and Wakefield reached an agreement in 1939 with Nestlé to add her recipe to the chocolate bar's packaging in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate. Initially, Nestlé included a small chopping tool with the chocolate bars. In 1941 Nestlé and one or more of its competitors started selling the chocolate in chip (or "morsel") form.

Bake something yummy with chocolate chips today...or just eat a handful!

Stay Cozy & Chocolatey too!

Today is Chocolate Parfait Day!

This dessert is just perfect - parfait means "perfect" in French!
American parfaits are usually  prepared in a tall glass filled with a layer of ice cream 
or pudding and whipped cream with the addition of your choice 
of any other delicious ingredients!
This recipe calls for pudding...

Growing up...I remember my mom making chocolate pudding for me 
and my 6 siblings.
She made it on the stove - the cooked kind!
 As it cooled in the fridge it would form a thin layer on the top that was quite thick.
Any body out there remember this?
I never liked this top layer - yuck -  so I would scrap it off with my spoon before I ate it! 
"Instant pudding" hadn't come out yet!  I  prefer that today!
