Microwave Potato Chips (Really! And Healthier)

3:00 AM 0 Comments

It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
It's back! On select Tuesdays I'll share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!

Today's recipe has become the new favorite snack at our house! It's super easy, and I was surprised to find how well it works!


That's right...crispy, golden potato chips right from the microwave! Yumtacular and healthier than packaged, sodium-laden varieties--and no heating up the oven or using the messy deep fryer! 

4 medium-sized russet potatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

 Scrub and peel potatoes. Using a mandolin or slicer, slice potatoes about 1/8-inch thick. (Thin is good, and it's hard to do this by hand...but if you've got no slicer and mad knife skills, fire away!)

In a bowl, combine oil and salt. Add in potato slices, toss well, and you're ready to cook.

You will need to do these in batches. Line a microwave-safe plate or tray that fits your oven with parchment paper and lay out potato slices in a single layer. Microwave full power for about 4 minutes until crispy and golden-brown. You'll have to watch these closely, so don't walk away! Microwaves vary, plus a thinner or thicker chip will alter cooking time.

Peel cooked chips carefully off parchment and repeat the process with remaining potato slices--you can reuse the same piece of parchment for subsequent batches.

 That's it! Enjoy your warm, crispy chips plain or with a favorite dip. (If doing these as dipping chips, I recommend going a little thicker on the slices. Just don't make them too thick or they won't crisp up properly.)

About the LONE WOLVES series:

They are cowboys torn from their livelihood after a fateful bite changed their destinies forever. When their pack is disbanded by a new alpha, the lone wolves are forced to roam the woods of Shay Falls with no way to return to the ranch life they once knew. Each must find a male pack mate of their own—and a female mate to hold that bond together.


Rose is headed to her temporary nursing assignment when she swerves to avoid a wolf in the road and finds herself in the arms of a virile, naked man instead. She wakes up in the hospital with a concussion and her cowboy rescuer watching over her. Caleb is beyond gorgeous and stirs feelings she’s never known--until her equally magnificent doctor walks in and sends her vital signs soaring.

Stephen and Caleb lead very different lives, yet they share a secret. Both are werewolves who recognize in the other their destined mate, and they want Rose in the middle of their erotic pack bond. When their offer involves a deeper commitment than she’s willing to give, she is determined to flee. To win her, they must save her from more than her fear of surrender—old enemies have returned to Shay Falls in search of revenge.


She felt his cock pulse and swell, and Caleb gave her a tight, knowing smile while Stephen emptied himself inside her. Hot fluid gushed from her slit, and her eye contact with Caleb deepened, intensified. The intimacy between them was palpable, even though he wasn’t allowed to touch her. Stephen’s orgasm shook her deeply, too, and with his release came a wave of potent gratification. Her body had completed his to such great satisfaction, a thought that stirred her hunger until she was ready to attack Caleb with or without Stephen’s permission.

The notion barely had time to circulate in her thoughts before Stephen pulled out of her and pushed her legs off Caleb’s thighs so she was straddling his hips instead. Her sensitive, wet clit brushed the erection that pulsed stiffly between Caleb’s legs, and she let out a gasp.

“I find her most definitely compatible,” Stephen said to Caleb in between hoarse, ragged breaths, and he lifted her bottom and reached between her legs to grasp Caleb’s hard cock. “And you were quite obedient.”
Stephen guided Caleb against her cunt, and he pushed her hips down a little until the head of his cock shoved inside. She cried out, and Stephen moved his hand so she could fit Caleb in completely. She sat straight down on that throbbing shaft, and their still-clasped hands gripped each other’s hard enough to hurt when she took him all the way into her body.

“Oh, Rose,” Caleb said in a tone of disbelief. “Oh, God.”

The words required no explanation.

Her cunt clenched tightly around his dick, and she sat there, studying the way his glowing eyes and serious expression fluctuated in time to the throbbing and jerking between their legs. She expected Stephen to back away now, leave them to their time together, but that was far from what he did. He gripped her hips again, much the way he had while taking her from behind, and he moved her so that he was making her fuck Caleb’s cock. Up and down he slid her on that pulsing erection, her clit rubbing along his groin and belly with each motion. She got the idea quickly and took over, using her thigh muscles to drive herself down on Caleb, forcing him deeper inside. As long as his dick was, there was a sort of bottoming-out feel when she rode him this way, but she didn’t care. She wanted more and more of him inside her, wanted to take his entire being into hers and hold him there forever. Her clit had more primal and immediate needs, though, and she made a deliberate point of dragging her throbbing bud along his firm body as she rose up, and pushing it firmly to the base of his pelvis when she sat back down.

Stephen was still behind her, and he sharpened her pleasure by kissing his way up her spine until he was nuzzling her neck. Goose flesh broke out everywhere, and her whimpers of desire turned to lusty, shameless moans. His hands circled around to grab her breasts, pulling on her nipples while she rode the rugged, sexy cowboy beneath her. Nothing in her life had ever been this good, and something in the back of her mind panicked, whispering for her to stop before she crossed a line she would never be able to venture back over.

But it was already too late.

Stephen pressed his body close, where she could feel his cock hard and ready against her ass. Part of her was so firmly entrenched in the experience of joining with Caleb that she could barely register anything else. The other part desperately wanted her to turn around and make love to Stephen face-to-face.

How wrong was it for her to feel this way about two men simultaneously? Neither of them seemed troubled by it, but it just didn’t seem reasonable. How could passion flow so readily for both when it had never so trickled for anyone else? Yet there was no denying it. If it were anatomically possible for her to fuck them at the same time, she’d sure as hell do it.

Then she felt the tip of Stephen’s cock against her tight asshole. Despite what she’d just been thinking, she froze in panic.

“Don’t,” she whispered over her shoulder. “It wouldn’t be right.”

“Everything we do together is right,” he murmured, though he stopped pushing himself against her. “Are you afraid of the pain?”

She nodded.

“Did it hurt when I took your virginity?”

“No.” And the realization surprised her. She hadn’t given much thought to the fact that it should.

“A werewolf’s mate won’t feel that pain with their partners,” Caleb said, his eyes filled with reassurance. “It’ll be okay, Rose. But it’s your choice.”

Stephen ran a hand over her ass cheek. “Let me be part of your pleasure while you’re claimed.”
