Parmesan Crisps (Courtesy of Ina Garten)


Ina Garten always has the best recipes!  Today, while folding my laundry, I was watching a recorded episode of The Barefoot Contessa.  I’ve seen this episode many times, but always watch her shows … even if it’s a repeat.  Today, she made her parmesan crisps.  I decided that today was the day I’d try making this savory appetizer.  I am so glad I did, they are fantastic!  These will definitely be making an appearance at my next gathering.  As Ina mentioned on her show, this pairs nicely with a glass of wine.  She was right, as always.  These crisps are rich enough to enjoy alone with a glass of wine as an appetizer with nothing else, or maybe some olives. They are very satisfying.  Enjoy, and thank you to Ina for another wonderful recipe!!


How you make this is really simple.  Using a box grater, grate the parmesan.  Place a tablespoon of the cheese on a pan you’ve lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.  On my oven, this actually took 8 minutes before they were crispy enough.  Just check them after 6 minutes and if they are not quite as crispy as you’d like, leave them in for a couple more minutes.

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
