This is one of those recipes that seems to have taken the internet by storm – so of course I had to try it!  I was highly skeptical, because I didn’t think you could get crispy potato chips if you didn’t fry or bake them.  It turns out I was wrong!  These are incredible! We made tons of them, experimenting with different seasonings.  Our house favorite is the dry rub I use for my Spice Grilled Chicken.  A close second was parmesan garlic. You simply must try these, if you haven’t already!


Homemade Potato Chips – In the Microwave!

This is more of a method, than an actual recipe.  Take 1 (or more) potatoes, scrub them and slice paper-thin (you can leave the skins on, or peel them).  The easiest way to do this is with a mandolin – I don’t have one, so I used a sharp knife and cut…

Heart of a Mother

Earlier today I shared a humorous take on Mothers, now I will share a more serious side.

An excerpt from
Heart of a Mother
by Paula J. Fox
Mothers are also a lot LIKE flowers in many ways…each one has her own unique beauty and each is designed by God to bloom where she is planted. As the heart of a Mother grows and blossoms in beauty and grace, she spreads her fragrance of LOVE not only in her home, but throughout her world.

Walk with me now through this enchanting garden as we examine how the different qualities and characteristics of each of these flowers remind us of the BEAUTY of a Mother’s love.

Baby’s Breath

Our first flower reminds us of the very beginning of a woman’s life as a Mother…the moment when she takes her first child into her arms and smells the fragrance of that sweet Baby’s Breath. Her heart will never be the same again.


The Lilac represents the fragrance of a Mother’s sacrifice…the lovely scent of forgiveness that results when a flower is crushed and gives back to the very one that crushed it. It reminds us of the beauty that surrounds a Mother who is always willing to forgive her children’s faults and offer them compassion, mercy and unconditional love.


The Hydrangea has a wonderful quality of being able to change color from shades of pink to blue. Initially it was thought that this flower was like a chameleon, changing color to match its surroundings, but experiments proved that the color is actually determined by the roots of the plant and the kind of soil it is planted in. This illustrates the Mother who gives her children a rich foundation of love and deep roots of character and strength.

Hope you have had an great Mothers Day.  The weather today here was just  amazing!
