Homemade Quick Potato Chips

 Sorry guys, I have not  been writing any stuff on my blog. For all the chip lovers and the healthy people out there, I'm sharing my delicious recipe with you.
First, wash your potatoes properly. By the way, you do not have to peel your potatoes.
Using a knife or a mandolin slicer, cut the potatoes thinly. Place the potato slices on a paper towel as shown.
Cover them with another paper towel and press with your hands to remove moisture.
Place potato slices in a large bowl, drizzle with oil, add a little(!) salt, and mix the ingredients. 
Put parchment paper on microwave safe plate (my mom arranged two plates in the microwave to save the time).  Place plate(s) in microwave for 4 minutes. Turn the slices over and cook for 3-4 minutes. Watch your slices so they do not burn.
Your chips will look like this:)

You may want to try sweet potato (photo below), zucchini, carrots, or other vegetables.
PS. The thinner you slice the vegetables, the faster they cook.

Potato Pancakes

Today, I want to share my recipe that made me a top 10 finalist in the Walk On, Kids Cooking Challenge.
To make these pancakes, you will need:

  •  3 medium potatoes, peeled and grated (large grate)
  •  1 medium carrot, peeled and grated (large grate)
  • 11 medium zucchini, grated (large grate)
  •  ½ of finely chopped red bell pepper
  •  3-4 sliced stems of green onions, white and green parts
  •  2 medium eggs
  •  Salt, pepper
  •  Vegetable oil

Mix grated vegetables; place them in a clean kitchen towel.  Wring to remove moisture (vegetable juice).

Place potato mix in a large bowl, add red pepper, green onions, eggs, salt and pepper; mix thoroughly.
In the large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Using a big spoon, place potato mixture into frying pan, leaving space between pancakes. Flatten pancakes. Fry until golden-brown, about 3-4 minutes.

Flip over and fry another side.
 Serve hot with sour cream.
