Garlic Parmesan Potato “chips”

So I lied. I was planning on making homemade french fries with tonight’s meal but when I pulled out the potatoes I had a new idea. Of course I couldn’t decide whether I wanted garlic Parmesan or Old Bay seasoning on them, so I decided to make both.

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Yesterday I said that since I don’t have any dinners to blog this week I would probably make a dessert today. I was flipping through my baking binder and this one popped out at me. I love snickerdoodle cookies. They’re light and fluffy and covered in cinnamon and sugar. They […]
