A few weeks ago, we took a class at a local culinary school. The focus was healthy eating, and we were able to enjoy a few snacks when we arrived. Laid out in front of us were beautiful piles of bright green kale chips and crisp orange sweet potato chips. I thought to myself I’d just have a bite of each, but that turned into a handful. Everyone was obsessed with these healthy snack replacements, so we came up with our own recipe as soon as we got back.

These oven-baked sweet potato chips can be sliced by hand, but we used the SaladXpress™ Food Processor to slice the chips directly into a large bowl. We then tossed them with olive oil and salt, and baked them until crisp. Waiting a few minutes for the chips to cool helped them become crunchy, and then it was time to dig in. Try these sweet potato chips at home as a healthy alternative to your usual bagged snacks.

Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes - Everyday Good Thinking - @hamiltonbeach

My mom and I always look forward to mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving. Did you know they can be made easily in your slow cooker while you’re taking care of the green bean casserole and basting the turkey?

Sweet potatoes with cranberries are a welcome update to the marshmallow-topped casseroles of yesteryear. These can also be made in the slow cooker, and it couldn’t be easier. This might just become your signature dish for years to come.
