Pita chips are cracker like snacks that are made from dried pita bread. They are often eaten with a variety of dips, or are served topped with hummus as an appetizer. Homemade pita chips are easy to make, and are much tastier and healthier than commercial varieties.
The basic recipe for baked pita chips is this: “Cut each pita bread in quarters and each quarter in half to make 8 triangles. Place them in a single layer on a sheet pan and sprinkle lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for about 10 minutes, until crisp, turning once.” but there are many variations. Please check out some of the recipes we’ve gathered below.
Chocolate lovers rejoice as February 14th is National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day!
A popular and traditional gift for Valentine’s Day, cream-filled chocolates can be purchased alone or as part of a sampler. If your sweetheart has a sweet tooth, National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day reminds you to treat your loved one to something sweet along with whatever other special gestures you may have in mind to mark the big day for romance!
As if you didn’t already have an excuse to plow through heart-shaped boxes of candy confections today, February 14 also happens to be National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day!
There is something about that moment when you bite into a cream-filled chocolate and the rich flavors all meld together in perfect harmony. Who knows? It could almost be described as some kind of love, but it’s definitely some kind of wonderful.
Giving a satiny box of chocolates to the one you love on Valentine’s Day didn’t become a tradition until the second half of the 20th century, and typically those boxes were bursting with more than just uniform rows of little round chocolates.
Each bite will have you marveling at raspberry cream, praline nougat or a waterfall of caramel … while others may have you questioning the flavor hiding in that green-colored marzipan. (Hint: it’s most likely pistachio, and not a sneaky trick to make you eat kale). Not willing to tempt filling flavor fate? Make cream-filled chocolate chip wafers instead.
So whether you want to prepare chocolates filled with sweet (and mysterious) surprises for a loved one or yourself, enjoy the loving rewards of today’s food holiday even if you don’t observe Valentine’s Day. After all, life is like a box of chocolates…
Stuck for Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Don’t panic, we’re here to help. This is a collection of sweet treats for Valentine’s Day that will melt your sweetheart’s (chocolate) heart.
You can easily order any of these from Amazon and most of them have same-day delivery.
