THANK YOU Prim2012 for that idea!!!
here is my version!!


Coconut Fried Sweet Cinnamon Jicama Chips!!!

HECK YEAH....HEE-ka-ma



YUMMY.....YUMMY....OOOooo SO YUMMY....I NEARLY LiCKED THE PLATE!!



peel your jicama and slice as thin as you can!!
the thinner, the crispier the edges!!!



i only used 1 tsp coconut oil....in the pan...
saute your jicama chips on both sides....until slightly brown!



once they start to brown, sprinkle with cinnamon and splenda...
or powdered stevia or sweetener of choice.



flip your slices and cover the other side with cinnamon splenda too!!



O.M.G. SWEET GOODNESS!!!

ok....the taste....on the first bite...i was like....wait a minute...
these taste like....like....
a cross between a cinnamon funnel cake and those
crispy edges of your favorite pancakes!!!!

i kid you not!!!





WANNABiTE???????????



another bite...and ....YUM!!!!


i topped mine with 1 TBSP Walden Farms Maple Syrup...
and by the time i was getting to the end...this most delicious
flavor was bursting through leaving a puddle of
cinnamony goodness in the plate!!




DID YOU SAY YOU WANTED SOME???



ahhhhh SORRY...i ate it all!!
and YES I EVEN LICKED THE PLATE!!
well, almost, cleaned the plate with my fingers and licked them clean!!


i'm so so so soooooooo BAD!!!!

Awesome! I told you you would like jicama!

i tend to use coconut oil when pan frying, searing or sauteeing, and i use evoo in salad dressings or for veggie chips

BOTH are very good choices.

if you are strictly IP, then only use evoo...or ask your coaches advice and do as your coach suggests because working with your own coach and being on the same page is very important.

i do not have a coach. all of the ipees here are MY coaches!!

i am planning to eat paleo following my ip journey, so am incorporating some good choices now that will carry my through my lifetime....like coconut oil, coconut milk, almond milk and occasionally some nuts like pumpkin seeds and almonds.

i suggest looking online for health benefits of each and then making your own choice as to what is best for you!!

here is one link to get you started in your research!! good luck!!

i traded ALL my pudding mixes away!! i only had 1/2 of a lemon packet to experiment...see the recipe back a few pages for the lemon cookies.

they were golden and had crispy edges...and a tiny bit chewy in the middle...the flavor was delicious, but the aftertaste that i taste in the puddings was still there....so i didn't care for them...however, DH came home and LOVED them and ate them all!!!! so i will be waiting to hear your results!!!

i love the wildberry yogurt cookies!!!

Rainbow, do you think this recipe would work with the chocolate drink instead of the cappucino?

I have a few wildberry packages so I will start with the wildberry cookies first.

keeping with my try something NEW each week....this week is
ZUCCHINI CHIPS!!

i have to tell you....i am NOT a huge zucchini fan...i do like it in soup...but not cooked alone or even roasted. so i was super super skeptical. and 2 hours of time invested!!! fortunately the oven does most of the work!!!

i had to practically FORCE myself to slow down from gobbling them up!!

i love savory things!! and i love crunchy things!! and omg...these were so delicious!!!!

MOVE OVER LOVE OF MY LIFE KALE CHIPS....theres a NEW CHIP in my life!! hahahaha and his name is SIR ZUCCHINI CHIP!!!!

ZUCCHiNi CHiPS



i just made some for the first time ever in my life....after reading about others making them using their dehydrator and me coveting everyone's dehydrator...i thought i'd make some in the oven.

here was my inspiration:
http://cookingwithmichele.com/2011/0...ucchini-chips/

i used my mandolin and sliced the zucchini nearly paper thin...



i used parchment paper and a few were on the edge of the pan....divajen is NOT kidding, they stick like mad....so use parchment paper for sure!! i used a MISTO sprayer for a very light spray of EVOO. i added salt and pepper.

one medium zucchini made all these chips!!!




DO NOT OVER SALT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! let me say that again....i thought i used only a wee bit and they were borderline too salty but OOOO SO GOOOD!!!

i Baked at 170....the lowest my oven would go, for 1 hour, then turned them all over, yes one by one!! DONT SKIP THIS STEP!! ....and baked another 50 mins (or more, ch3eck each 5 mins for crunchiness level) and they were crispy like potato chips....crunchy!!! YES!!!! i barely got one photo...before i gobbled them all up....1 zucchini made a whole pan but i can tell you, they were eaten in a few minutes!!!!!!!!! a skinny new york minute!!!! i will probably make some more for supper as this was a test run!!! i LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!!!


ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mmmmmm... I shared this one with my sister today. Thanks again Rainbow!
