Crispy Baked Apple Chips Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Crispy Baked Apple Chips Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

These crispy apple chips are an absolute treat and the perfect healthy after school snack! Mix red and green apples for sweet and sour chips. Try adding cinnamon and sugar before you bake them for a sweeter variation. My kiddos are totally on board with these delicious crispy apple chips; they don’t last long, so make an extra batch!

Crispy Baked Apple Chips Recipe

What you need:
  • Red Apples
  • Green Apples
  • Apple Corer
  • Knife or Mandoline Slicer
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
Prepare what you need | CatchMyParty.com

Directions:

Wash and dry your apples. Using the apple corer, take out the apple cores. Make sure all seeds are removed. If you have a mandoline slicer, slice the apples into thin slices. You can also carefully slice the apples with a large knife. If the slices are too thick they will not be as crispy.

Take out the apple core | CatchMyParty.com

After slicing all the apples, spread them out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Slice the apple using mandoline slicer if available | CatchMyParty.com

Bake the apples at 200 ℉ for one hour. Remove the apples from the oven and turn them over. Continue to bake the apples for an additional 90 minutes or until apples are crispy. Allow apples to cool before storing in an airtight container or ziploc bag.

Plus, I found my new favorite bakery, Tartine. This is definitely a city for eating!

We're off to Sonoma for two days to eat more good food, drink good wine, and be in the rural beauty of wine country. Then we come back and settle in because school starts in a little over a week. I'm not ready! Hope you're enjoying your summer!

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party

by Jillian Leslie on

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.comEvery Saturday, my husband, daughter, and I go to the farmer's market in downtown Palo Alto, CA.

I love everything about it: the explosion of colors, the smells, the tastes, watching as the fruits and vegetables change throughout the season, and saying hello to my favorite farmers. It's truly a special place for me.

So when Shutterfly asked me to try out their custom home decor collection, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to use the farmer's market as my inspiration for a fun cocktail party.

Up until now, I'd only bought photo books from Shutterfly, so I was excited to discover all their customizable home decor. And what impressed me the most, aside from the large selection, was how easy it was to personalize each item, and turn them into one-of-a-kinds.

To get my party planning off the ground, I took a ton of photos with my iPhone on my next trip to the farmer's market. Then I started customizing...

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

How To Decorate A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party

My first goal was to bring the spirit of the farmer's market into my dining room.

I used the Shutterfly Design-a-Wall to create this three panel mounted wall art. I featured closeups of red and green heirloom tomatoes, purple plums, and green artichokes.

I was able to create these images in minutes, and I LOVE how they turned out! They looked so professional -- you'd never know they were quick iPhone photos.

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

To make hanging easy, Shutterfly sent a handy paper hanging guide, complete with level, to make sure the photos were straight and perfectly placed. This was such a help and I was able to hang the photos in under five minutes.

Next, I made two custom photo pillows. I created one from a photo of gorgeous purple zucchinis, and another from vibrant flowers. I wasn't planning on displaying the pillows under my photos, but when I randomly placed them there, I really liked how it looked.

How To Decorate A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

I'm also big into surrounding myself with affirmations, quotes, and "power" words.

I believe we all create our own narratives, so why not make the words we surround ourselves with as strong and positive as possible?

I incorporated four of my favorite words in my decor: "Happy," "Breezy," "Cheery," and "Jaunty." My old dog, Gertie, used to have a jaunty walk, so that word is near and dear to my heart!

I also created a personalized burlap table runner with my four words written down the middle, and I created two custom pillows with the words "Happy" and "Breezy" on them.

How To Decorate A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

Next, I personalized my glass decanter with the quote: "Wine a bit. You'll feel better." Seriously, what could be more apropos at a cocktail party? I thought it would make my guests laugh.

How To Decorate A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

And I repeated my favorite words on four wine glasses. If we are all suggestible, as I keep learning, what a subtle way to coax my guests into having a good time.

How To Decorate A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

Next I designed this "Let's Eat" desktop plaque to place on my table. Close by, I displayed a bowl of fresh farmer's market peaches. Again, my goal is always to create warm, welcoming, layered touches.

I personalized this cutting board with the saying: "Good food. Good life." This is a quote I live by, and is my philosophy when entertaining.

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

I also personalized this glass jar with the words"Tasty Stuff," and filled it with caramel corn, for a playful touch of sweetness.

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

And lastly, I designed this personalized serving tray using one of my sunflower photos. It added another bright pop of color, and I paired it with some real sunflowers for added punch.

How To Throw A Farmer's Market Themed Cocktail Party | CatchMyParty.com

I love how my party turned out, with its bold colors and whimsical details. Here are some more photos for you to enjoy...

Have a wonderful week!
