So, you have a thing for the chips. Especially while binge-watching your favorite TV series, right?

Homemade chips are the answer!

You can still get to gorge on finger-licking chips but at least you can do it in a health-aware manner. Craft your own chips by applying new cooking techniques (oven-baking, microwaving) to your potatoes. You can go even further with your homemade chips and replace the good old potatoes with other ingredients; we went for zucchini, parmesan, and apple, too. How about you?

Want to bring something new to your classic potato chips? Here is a simple trick: before you fry them, grab 2 chips, add a basil leaf between them, and press them together.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods, and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, the results really started to show, so wish me luck!
