Dried Apple Ring Snack

Hey Ya’ll!

Happy Thursday! I’m not sure about all of you, but I need a snack between meals (especially in the afternoon). It’s so easy to reach for a bag of tortilla chips, or a candy bar when your blood sugar hits rock bottom.

Something I love snacking on are apple chips. Store bought apple chips usually go for $6 for a small bag… Personally, I don’t want to spend $6 everyday on a small snack, so I of course decided to make them myself.

This is a great snack for kiddos!

Let’s get started!

Wholesome Apple Chips

Makes ~24 apple chips


  • 2 Medium Apples (I used the pink lady apple)
  • Cinnamon (as desired)


1.) Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F

2.) Wash your apples with a mild dish soap

3.) Using a vegetable peeler or a paring knife to cut out the core of the apple. Discard the core, and cut the apple into thin slices horizontally (so that each piece makes an, “O”).

Note: To make your chips more of a crispy chip texture, try to cut the slices as thin as possible (it’ll help if you have a mandolin) and cook on the longer side of what’s suggested.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Hey, Embarquers,

I’m quite excited to share this new recipe of a household staple, chicken noodle soup. There are few things better than a big bowl of homemade soup on a cold winter day.

This was a bit of a trial and error and adapting different recipes, but I think this turned out quite delicious.

Mashed Cauliflower

Happy Monday, Embarquers,

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE mashed potatoes. It must be something to do with my mother with Scandinavian roots making mashed potatoes with butter and chives quite frequently as a child. Now, not having the same metabolism as an 8 year old, I need to be more concerned with nutritional content, yet still be satisfied after finishing a meal. Thankfully my mother decided to start subbing out potatoes for cauliflower when I became older. If any of you have been on the Atkins diet, this is a popular substitution for mashed potatoes.

I Can’t Believe it’s Cauliflower

Here is what you need:

  • 2 heads of Cauliflower
  • 1 package of Boursin or Alouette spread
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • Parmesan (to taste)
