I keep knocking my poorly finger, my “baby” is still sick, the rain won’t stop and I feel like I’m starting to lose my mind . . .

I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to have a recipe to share with you today because well, I just couldn’t seem to get it together and I’m not one of those organised food bloggers who has months of recipes planned, photographed scheduled  ready to post ahead of time.

What you see is what you get, Real life baby, reeeeaaaallllll life!

And then sometimes life throws you a bone . . . like today I got this massive craving for something salty . . . and crispy, and crunchy  and a little bit cheesy. But did you see the weather?! Um hello raining cats and dogs ! No way was I going out in that cah-razy weather to get myself a crispy, crunchy, cheesy little snack.




So what’s a girl to do?!

She goes digging through her fridge and pantry to see what she can conjure up in the comfort of her own home thats what.

And that my friend is how todays recipe was born.

Light and crispy, melt in your mouth, garlic infused, cheesy little chips that come together in less than 20 minutes and also happen to be totally healthy?!

Yes, yes just yes!

I love the way those curly little leaves just hold onto so much flavour.

Little pockets of cheese get all crisp and golden brown and tucked away discreetly in-between those pretty little ruffles.

Then when you shove a handful into your mouth and bite on in to that crispy, crunchy, pretty little chip . . .
