Celebrate National Potato Chip Day with your favorite bag of
chips, or get crazy and make your own! Try this recipe from Jillee.
(click on the photo for the recipe and step-by-step photos.)
"Of course most of us purchase our potato chips in bags…but
making your own is a fun, healthy, and delicious
alternative…especially if it's as easy as this! But what is really
amazing is how crispy and crunchy they are!"
And then to be sure your salty creation has the perfect mate,
try this easy dip recipe.
1 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Better Than Bouillion beef base (you could probably
use dry beef bouillion, crumbled fine)
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Chill for one hour.
Okay - I found it! Here is the recipe for Red Velvet Love.
Red Velvet Layer:
1 2/3 c. flour
1 c. + 2 T. sugar
4 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 small eggs
1/2 c. oil
2 T. milk, divided
3 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. red food coloring
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. + 2 T. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking
powder. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, oil, 1 tablespoon milk,
vanilla, food coloring and vinegar. Combine the dry and wet
ingredients, until completely combined. Remove 1/2 cup of the
batter and place it in a small bowl. Whisk in the remaining 1
tablespoons of milk. Pour the remaining batter into a greased 9x13
baking dish. Using a spatula, smooth out the batter to reach all
In a medium bowl, place cream cheese and sugar. Beat with an
electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla,
beating until combined and smooth. Pour the cream cheese mixture on
top of the red velvet layer and smooth mixture till it reaches all
the edges. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining red velvet batter (that
you mixed with milk) onto the top of the cheesecake layer. Drag the
tip of a knife through the red velvet and the cheesecake layers to
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or just until the center is set
and no longer jiggles. Let cool completely on a wire rack before
cutting. Use a medium sized heart cookie cutter to create the
perfect Valentine's Day treat!
Tips: These brownies were a bit of
work, but the result was so cute it made it all worth it! I put
parchment paper down in the baking dish which made it easier to
bring the brownies out and use the cookie cutter once it was
I can see these also being made for other holidays with different
food coloring. (True, that would technically not be red velvet but
the taste would be the same.) Green with a shamrock cookie cutter
for St. Patrick's day, pink with an Easter egg cookie cutter for
Easter, blue and red with a star cookie cutter for 4th of July, the
possibilities are endless.
If you do use the heart cookie cutter, you will obviously have
some scrap pieces leftover. If you can keep your kids or husband
from eating them right away, check out the recipe for the Red Velvet Cheesecake Milkshake!
