Easy Roasted Potato Crisps ~ $100 Visa Giveaway

Roasted Potato Crisps

When people tell me a recipe is easy, I typically take “easy” with some skepticism. My idea of easy is much simpler than most people. I’ve been known to ruin easy recipes because I typically need an easy recipe when I have no time or patience — it needs to be one to two steps and done. At […]

I have a new, healthier, alternative to my snacking challenges — a Chocolate Covered Strawberries Kefir Power Smoothie.
