Reviewed toasted pita chips

May 27, 2014 on

So good! We make these very often, but because of sodium restrictions, we don't add the salt. Boy, these are so good! Much, much better than the ones purchased from the grocery. We make them from authentic pitas, shipped to a market here, and they are delish!

The recipe as printed is pretty high in sodium, which makes it not so healthy as it looks at first glance. Here is how I am going to make them tonight. I am going to use Mrs. Dash instead of the salt, and Panko instead of the bread crumbs. Bread crumbs are pretty high in sodium. This way, I can still have the parm by using just half the amount w/o...

Fantastic pancakes. My husband made them for Sunday morning breakfast. He had to change them a bit so I could enjoy them. He used 2% milk, EggBeaters, and low-fat sour cream. These were outstanding. Not at all heavy, and the texture was lovely. We will have these again soon.

This recipe is so very good. It is so versatile! First serving is the dish as given, except we use no salt. Mrs. Dash only. Second serving is a base for leftovers! We make a simple sauce of steamed till falling apart cauliflower, a bit of flour and a bit of chicken broth and cheese. Add this to the pasta with whatever leftover vegs and meat/fish/fowl...

Oh, so very good! I like very much that the pecans do not get soft. Beautiful on muffins or cupcakes. My favorite is on top of a cranberry waffle!

I let them cool completely, then put them in an apothecary jar with a tight lid. They stay on the counter and don't last very long because we eat them.

Love this recipe. Kentucky has such a different style of barbecue. Nothing else comes close!

I've made this several times, and it is so very good. I followed the recipe to the last dot the first time, and it was great. I wanted to decrease the sodium, so I now use homemade chicken broth with no added salt, cook my own beans, and make my own sauce with no salt, just Mrs. Dash. I also add a couple good shots of hot sauce to wake it up a"

This recipe is incredibly high in sodium. The level can be lowered by making your own pinto beans, and using Mrs. Dash when making them. Or, use one of the low-sodium brands. They can be hard to find, and pinto beans are easy to make at home. No need to salt the zucchini. Make your own salsa. This way, you cut the sodium level to very low. Much b...

These cupcakes have been in our family's top dessert picks for years. So very, very good. Just the right amount of sweetness, and not too much chocolate. I have made them the same way for I don't know how many years, and never had a fail. Can't have them anymore, but still make them for my family and friends."

Well, to start with, the Blender Hollandaise is remarkably similar to the Rombauer Blender Hollandaise (Joy of Cooking) recipe I have been using since 1976 when we got our first blender. The only thing different is that she reverses the addition of a couple of ingredients. It isn't her recipe. I agree about needing vinegar in the egg water. Or, bu"
