I'm not normally a potato lover, but when you have a ten pound bag from Costco, you find ways to use them! Here are some interesting and easy ways to prepare potatoes...

Crispy potato chips in the microwave -- shut the front door! A mandoline is extremely helpful here to get those chips as thin as possible.
I recently posted a recipe for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte using half-n-half and egg yolk (custard style) -- but I wouldn't be true to my blog name if I didn't offer a version with coconut milk. With ingredients like pumpkin and coconut, do I dare call something so yummy healthy?! One of the great things about coconut milk is that it emulsifies with other ingredients beautifully, and its thick enough that it doesn't need the egg-yolk like the dairy version. It also adds some sweetness and takes away from the pumpkin flavor so that I tweaked the ratios of the ingredients, and decided that with so many little alterations, I figured this version deserves its own post... Hope you like!
Ack -- Six weeks until Christmas?! Time to get your craft on. The holidays are so busy for everyone - especially for me this year with the baby's first birthday in December (which I haven't started planning, by the way). Make the holiday madness fun and set aside one day a week to make something festive with your kids. Here are some ideas that I will be doing with my family that kids of all ages will enjoy. I've included some ideas to cover the spirit of the season: giving, making memories and baking. There are seven project ideas so you're more than covered 'til Christmas!
You know it's fall when Starbucks is serving Pumpkin Spice Lattés, even if it is still in the mid-80's in California. I love me some Starbucks but I am not a fan of paying $4 for coffee, so I had to come up with a homemade (and all-natural) version! After a week of Pumpkin Spice Lattés, I think I've got it just right. If you try it, please leave a comment and let me know how you like it!
