I was born and raised in Kansas and learned to cook alongside my mother. Now, along with my wonderful husband, I have taken the plunge into the city life in New York. These are my food adventures: in my own tiny kitchen, and in the many restaurants of the city.

Best Potato Chips Ever

Joe and I love us some potato chips--they are our go-to snack almost every time. Over the years we have tried many a variety: ruffled and not, bbq, sour cream and onion, cheddar cheese and chives, and brand after brand. But a couple of months ago, we came across these Utz chips in our local grocery store.

Utz's chips were already our favorite all-around chips--they have great flavor, just enough salt and are perfectly crispy. Their flavored potato chips are always excellent--my particular favorite flavor is the Crab flavored (chips covered in an Old Bay Seasoning like mixture). But the Grandma Utz chips took my chip love to a whole new level. Utz's website states that "To make these chips taste just like Bill and Salie Utz’s original recipe, we use slightly thicker and un-rinsed potato slices that are kettle-cooked in small batches." After they are sliced, they are cooked in lard as opposed to regular vegetable or canola oil. Infusing each of these chips with smoky, porky goodness. Making these chips the hands-down best ones I've ever tasted. If you find these staring out at you in the chip aisle make sure you grab multiple bags. You won't regret it.

Easily the best potato chips I've ever had. I want to bathe in them.
