Homemade Pita Chips

Last night, I made my own homemade pita chips for the first time.  As I was chewing my first bite of crispy heaven, I thought to myself, "Why have I never made these before?"  They were absolutely delicious!  They are so easy to make, I think I'll be making a batch every week now.

Homemade Pita Chips

Ingredients:

6 whole pita rounds
4 Tablespoons butter
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Cut each pita round into 4 wedges, and separate the layers into individual wedges.  You will have 8 chips per pita round.  Arrange the pita chips in a single layer onto large baking sheets, with the rough side up.

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan, then add the olive oil, garlic powder, and sea salt.  Brush the butter mixture onto the pita wedges.  Bake pita wedges for approximately one hour, or until the chips are crispy and just starting to turn a golden color.

Serve with salsa, bean dip, or just eat them plain.  They're delicious either way!

My pediatrician at the time was absolutely no help.  I was told that I needed to offer them the breast more frequently, though I'm not sure how that was possible since I was already constantly feeding them--seriously, I couldn't even go to the bathroom without them screaming because my boob wasn't in their mouth.  I was also told that they weren't latching on correc

Soapmakers: Why You Shouldn't Use Vinegar if You Come into Contact with Lye

It was one of the first things I learned when I began making my own soap; I read it in books and on the internet: "Always keep a jug of vinegar on hand when you are working with lye.  Vinegar neutralizes lye." Soapers, have you heard this?  Do you practice the habit of keeping vinegar nearby when you make your soaps?  So did I, until recently, when I read an interesting post on a soap forum, and then decided to research the claim myself.
