Celery Root Chips

Get a celery root in your organic basket this week? Have no idea what to do with it!? I didn’t get an organic basket but was lucky enough to have a friend who didn’t want to make an attempt with it, so kindly gave it to me….I again haven’t tried this before but what I do know is that in our home, my husband and I have “the secret ingredient” it’s a term we lovingly use for celery seed. It is one of our favorite things to cook with! So, the chance to try something fun with the root sounded exciting to me!!!

There were so many things you can do with the celery root when I researched it. The soup sounds delicious and that was my first thought, but the truth was I was in a hurry because I had 10 recipes I wanted to try. So I chose a quick and easy one that I thought my whole family would enjoy and gave it a little Jamie touch…..My 2 year old REALLY loved this one!

I'm married and am very blessed to be the mother of a gorgeous little 2 year old named Mac. I live in good ol' North Dakota! I love to do many things. Laugh, love, write and cook. Mostly, I like to enjoy life to the fullest. That's probably why I love cooking so much. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. My day job keeps me very busy but its also extremely rewarding. I work for a company called Pride Inc. We serve individuals with developmental disabilities. So most of the people on my caseload are like my family. For me, I learned from my grandma that cooking brought people together. I associated it with happiness, love and togetherness and who doesn't want those things in life! So I've always tried to continue that in my own life with my own family. Nothing brings people together like a good meal. And a few good laughs!
