HomeMade Fun


Don’t you love being able to make something at home that tastes better and is way cheaper? I am learning as I go and find it quite fun. I saw a recipe for Apple Chips and the same applies to making Potato Chips as well, I bet using Sweet Potatoes would be yummy too! I scored a fantastic Mandoline Slicer off craigslist for $8, came home and cleaned it and its ready to rock and roll. It was originally purchased at Costco and to me that means its a great brand and product as they seem to carry the best. Looking forward to a bunch more fun slicing and dicing in the future!!

Mandoline Slicer

Apple/Potato Chips

Preheat oven to 225ºF.

One Medium Apple or Potato sliced paper thin (if using potatoes I would spray them with a bit of oil spray and use kosher salt and/or a yummy spice rub for flavors!)

I did one tray of plain apples (I did 2 apples) and the next tray I melted a tablespoon of butter with a tablespoon of brown sugar and microwaved it for 1 minute and spread on apples for a sweeter treat.. can’t wait to taste them. Would have taken pictures but the hubby has the camera at work!

Line two 11-inch by 16-inch baking sheets with silicon liners (if you have them, I don’t thats on my list to buy as well). Place potato or apple slices single layer on a lined sheet. Bake for one hour until crisp and dried.
