    Hi all , I was wandering round the 'net' earlier and came across some recipes ...and spotted one for crisps !!
    gotta have a go at them !!!

    I got my really thin slicer out, sliced a potato, then I sprayed some frylight on the actual plate in my microwave .
    Laid the potato slices on it (dont overlap) and microwaved them for 6 mins
    (my micro oven is a 900 watt )
    O M G they are so good :drool::drool::drool:
    sprinkle with a little salt...

    I also made a cous cous cake. different but nice . Now Im just cooking shepards pie with swede/carrot topping with cabbage and carrots mmmmm

    I think i've seen before that if you cook potatoes like this to become crisps that they're no longer sin-free. Due to the fact that the sin and free food values are calculated on the food as it is most commonly eaten. So for a potato the value would stay the same for roasted, mashed, boiled etc, but when it becomes crisps because you can eat a whole lot more potato, the water content has changed (or disapeared), and it wouldn't fill you up in the same way potatoes would normally, the crisps should officially have sins.

    I think this applies to any food that's not being eaten in the way it was intended.

    Sorry to put a dampner on your cooking frenzy, but it's something to bear in mind!

    even though i've said i want a crisp maker and how good an idea it is to make them, i havent really craved any crisps at all! in fact i havent craved anything really ... i've had some chocolate spread over the week but nothing like i would have pre diet. I would normally have ate 2 or 3 packets of crisps a day and now i can thankfully say im not missing them at all lol
