Potato Chips

Rating: 4.53 stars
Make your own potato chips using your microwave. A tasty and easy alternative to store-bought potato chips (not to mention economical)! A mandoline would make slicing the potato into paper thin slices a breeze.

Avocado Toast (Vegan)

This is a delicious, healthy, hearty breakfast recipe. If you are not vegan, you can add fried eggs to your toast for a delicious vegetarian meal.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Rating: 4.74 stars
This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers.

This is a GREAT alternative to chips and dip. I take this everywhere and always get asked for the recipe. It is awesome! It is best served with mini-twist pretzels, but it's also great with veggies.
