Recipe Redux: Get Chip-Faced with Chipkins

Dehydration is never a good look in Hollywood….

Can you guess the fashion designer?

I could have posted another photo of Tara Reid, but no need to “rib” on her again!


Or anywhere for that matter…

 Is this normal? Cat people – weigh in…



GiGi holding pumpkin chips

Uh, please do take a minute to check out this sensual food pornography…


Today I am serving up dehydrated pumpkin chips, or what I like to call CHIPKINS!

It’s time to ditch those nasty cow-juice and additive-laced store bought chips, and MAKE YOUR OWN!

GiGi What Up Pumpkin Chips

Dehydrating food is flipping PHENOMENAL and no need to worry about losing any of the beneficial health properties of the food (because I KNOW YOU WERE WORRIED!). 

Apparently this cooking process retains almost 100% of the nutritional content of the food and it preserves the alkalinity of fresh produce and actually inhibits the growth of microforms such as bacteria!


PEACE OUT Bacteria!


Hey-oh! Who’s running out to Bed, Bath & Beyond to pick up a dehydrating gizmo now?

Nesco Snackmaster Food Dehydrator

Or you could just head to – Hello CONVENIENCE!


But hold it right there! You don’t have to shell out the big bucks for a crazy contraption… You can utilize what you already have… YOUR OVEN!

Check out the latest GiGi Eats Video to SEE HOW IT’S DONE!

It’s time to get CHIP-FACED! 

Pumpkin Chips, called Chipkins

Here’s what you need to fuel your chip addiction…

  • 1 Small Sugar Pumpkin (do not purchase a GINORMOUS Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin, like I initially did… #FAIL)
  • Olive Oil or Coconut Oil for coating (you can use non-stick spray if you’d like)
  • 2 – 3 Tbs Pumpkin Pie Spice (or Cinnamon) depending on how big your pumpkin is – or any herbs or spices you’d like depending if you want your pumpkin sweet or savory
  • Pumpkin Seeds, optional

This is how you turn your kitchen into a chip factory…

  • Preheat your oven to 140 degrees while you chop your pumpkin into slices.
  • Spread sliced pumpkin on baking sheet (lined with foil for quick clean up), spray or massage with olive oil (or coconut oil), sprinkle with seasonings of choice and “dehydrate” for roughly 6 hours. 
  • Shove an oven mitt or a kitchen towel between the oven door and the oven, to prop over the oven door a little bit to help the moisture evaporate. 
  • Every hour or so, check on your pumpkin and mix accordingly.
  • After 6 hours… Let cool and then SHOVE IN YOUR FACE… Without guilt!

  1. Oh giiirrrlll, you rock my socks so much :))) I’m doing the biggest happy dance ever! I just bought way too many pumpkins this weekend. For the first time, I saw a plethora of different kinds of pumpkins being sold here in the Netherlands that went beyond butternut squash and the normal orange… and now I have four more pumpkins/squash than I know what to do with :) My in laws have a dehydrator. I’m going to need that. Like now.

    [I’m also pinning – yummmmmm]

    • I LOVE ROCKING SOCKS OFF FIRST THING ON A MONDAY MORNING (well I guess for you it’s not exactly Monday morning, lol)… But regardless, socks need to be rocked off at least 25 times per week, LOL! WOO WOO! Everything happens for a reason, and you subconsciously KNEW I was going to be posting a pumpkin recipe today 😉

    • This looks good girl! Is that really Tara Reid…OMG.

  2. Haha, yea, it’s afternoon here, but for me, it’s perfect sock rocking time as it’s the time of day that I tend to want to stop doing everything and go to sleep for the night haha.

    Yes, subconscious pumpkin buying – love it :)))

  3. Yum, this sounds amazing. I had no idea you could use the oven as a dehydrator. Do you have to cut the pumpkin into pretty thin slices?

    • They don’t have to be super thin, no, but if you do try and dehydrate thicker slices, the cooking process may take longer, that’s all.

  4. It never occurred to be to make chips a la pumpkin! Now to go get some cute sugar-babies as my behemoth will not be butchered. And would not be so tasty if it were!

    • Chips a la pumpkin – ha! That’s another really phenomenal name for Chipkins! 😉

      And… I made the mistake of buying the behemoth… It tasted, interesting. LOL

  5. I love Chipkins!! How cute are they? Now, I need to go convince one of my parents to buy me a dehydrator for my birthday (whoaaa, don’t I sound like an adult?).

    I have never gotten the hype around Halle Berry. People act like there’s never been a more talented or beautiful actress, and I’m just like “mehhh.”

    • YES! BEG YOUR PARENTS for a dehydrator —- Like an ADULT. Or just use your oven like I did 😉

      And I haven’t even thought about Halle Berry in ages, but you’re SO RIGHT! She was in the latest X-Men movie and people were soo pumped she was making an appearance but, she really did NOTHING to enhance the movie, AT ALL.

  6. Wow, I never thought of pumpkin chips! We do dehydrated pears sometime (also with cinnamon) but pumpkin sound tasty and even more nutritious.

    And yay, a coconut oil massage sounds heavenly! … Oh, wait, I guess you meant the pumpkin slices. Sigh.

  7. I never would of thought of dehydrating pumpkin slices. Sounds tasty!

  8. Weirdest name… I saw Jennifer spelled Jenipher once. Sorry if that’s your name but damn, that spelling is cray!!

    Overrated celebrity… Um, all of them? Hehe.

    These pumpkin chipkins look yummy and easy, two of my favorite attributes. On all things.

    • Bah ha ha! No my name is actually Genevieve (GiGi for short)… So no offense taken AT ALL by the Jenipher mention… And in fact, I find that spelling to be utterly ridiculous and just plain STUPID. AH HA HA HA HA!!!

      And Chris, couldn’t agree more – all celebs are sooooo over rated – ha ha ha!

  9. You’re always so fun, Gigi!

    Pumpkin chips? It’s too bad I don’t have a dehydrator, Aw. I’m content with my slowcooker, thank you very much. We’re having a love affair and he always shows up on time if I give him a eight hour notice!

    • Girl, use your oven like I did! Don’t pass this deliciousness UP! Just tell your slow cooker you need to mix it up a bit…… You’re looking for an open relationship, LOL!

  10. i love your blog, i am going to try out this recipe

  11. Ok I’ve been up for 33 hours so your reference to popping out children brought me to tears.
    Buggs (my Cat) thinks the cat in the picture looks like Tara Reid. Never made chips but I do want a dehydrator, to make jerky and chips now. I think Chipkins is great, food is really more satisfying and you can have it any way you want when you want it :) Rosie should never ever attempt a tiny tiny bikini ever !!
    Brittney should have some great VEGAN ideas, veiled hint hehe.

    • 33 Hours! WTF – GO TO SLEEP NOW! You better be sleeping RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE! No excuses! LOL! Well, that is unless of course you’re eating Chipkins! LOL!

      Rosie in a tiny bikini…. Aw man, my imagination. How can I UN-IMAGINE something????

  12. MMMMM I love anything pumpkin! I’ll have to try em!

  13. I LOVE pumpkin! We have a super colossal 10 tray dehydrator to use for this! I am so excited!!

  14. Super creative idea! I love your blog :)

    • Why thank you Anne! :) Your blog was new to me as well, and I mean, I always crave something HEALTHY so of course I knew I was going to love it!

  15. Looks amazing! I’ve wanted a dehydrator forever! Need to bite the bullet, because i just dont like the idea of the oven being on so long. I know, I’m just crazy.

    Chipkins are by far the best name!

  16. This sound amazing and I want to put my face in all of them and eat them all up!

  17. these sound interesting but delicious & that first photo…hysterical

  18. So cute! Love dehydrated foods :)

  19. I’ve never had dehydrated pumpkin chips before but love the idea of making them on my own!

  20. So entertaining I’m going to be laughing all morning long! I just bought some chipkins/pups from Whole Foods, I definitely want to make my own now though!

    • Whole Foods sells some??? Hmmm I have to look into what they’re offering! But… Making your own, so much better and – REWARDING :)

      PS: I am thrilled I will have you laughing all morning!

  21. Those look great! I haven’t tried dehydrating my own fruits or veggies yet but you make it look easy. Thanks!

  22. What a great idea! I need to try this! So are these dehydrated to the point of crispy chip-ness, say like banana chips, or are they still kinda soft like dehydrated apple slices? Just wanna know what to go for here.

  23. I love pumpkin. These sound so yummy. Need to make them.

  24. hahaha, I love your enthusiasm! :D! I was laughing as I was reading; your facial expressions are awesome. I definitely vote chipkins! :]

    I’m not sure what the weirdest name I’ve ever heard would be, but someone once spelled my name as, “Pherra.” :[

    One of my favorite fall recipes = this Oven Roasted Autumn Medley!

  25. CONGRATS on your first recipe redux post – and welcome to the club! And what a killer recipe this is GiGi! All that pumpkin and pumpkin spice will get everything smelling nice :)

  26. Chipkins for sure. I think? Although with marketing, is that really getting the pumpkin point across? You know how people need pumpkin marketing drilled into their heads!
    I love pumpkin everything. I do. Not fake pumpkin stuff, mind you.

    • OMG Stop IT! AH HA HA! I feel like I am being critiqued on that show Supermarket Superstars – did you ever see that? It aired last summer I believe. I actually really liked it, but of course, anything I like is always discontinued. I am shocked Top Chef is still on… Oh crap, did I just jinx that now!?!?!

  27. I adore pumpkin anything! I’ve never even heard of dehydrated chips in pumpkin form. Can’t even wait to get my hands on them!

  28. I had never heard of chipkins until this post, and apparently autocorrect does not want me to remember it, as it keeps changing it to chickens….damn you autocorrect, its meatless monday for god sake 😛 Would definitely love to give them a try! Thanks for revealing them to me!

  29. such a GREAT idea!! I think I need a dehydrator! I had never thought to make pumpkin chips before!

  30. HAHAHAHA! I really want a food dehydrator, but I think I lost my appetite!

  31. SO I didn’t watch your video yet, because I am sitting in the library…at school…the place I am enslaved to for the next year. BUTTTT I do still want to comment on how delicious these look, and how fun the linkup is. That celebrity photo is scary, as are most of the ones you post. I dehydrate if I don’t have at least 100oz of water a day, but you know this as you got to experience my water obsession first hand. HAHA. “I NEED WATER!”


  32. Looking forward to more dehydrated food recipes! Oh gosh, who’s that lady in the pics? When skinny is ugly.

  33. Bring a big bag of those on over and we can chillax (oh yea, bringing THAT back) and watch Bachelor reruns. Mmmk??

  34. I love all your hilarious faces in these pictures! Pumpkin chips are such a great idea! Why have I never thought of that before?

    • Ha Ha! I am definitely known for my weird faces, but hey… There are worse things to be known for, right???? Now go eat some pumpkin chips! LOL!

  35. I have yet to buy a pumpkin – we talked about it at the grocery last night but figured we’d wait. i want to carve one to roast the seeds :)

    I like chipkins!

  36. Oh yum! I bet my son would love those (and I love them because they’re healthy but they seem like a treat!) If you can believe it, I’ve been driving around with my dehydrator in the back of my car to drop off at Goodwill because I wasn’t using it enough to justify the space it took up in my kitchen. Hmm… to keep or not keep?

  37. I love this redux!!!
    I got a dehydrator 2 years ago and have used it 2x – I can’t wait to check out the other link-ups and start dehydrating!!!

  38. Dehydrated pumpkin chips sound SO tasty! I love anything and everything pumpkin, so these I’ve got to try!

  39. I love anything and everything pumpkin- can’t wait to try pumpkin chips!

  40. Lol I love your puns. Omg I bet that dehydrater would be SO good for plaintains or sweet potatoes. MMMMM buddy!!!!

  41. hilarious presentation! I am going to have to give these chipkins a try. PINNED! :)

    Life With Lorelai

  42. These look delicious! I love addition of pumpkin seeds as well. Throw a little sea salt on there and I’ll take it!

    • Right? Sea salt and pumpkin seeds = MAGIC in the mouth, however, I put a little stevia and cinnamon on those too, and HELLOOOOOO new world of tastiness!

  43. I’ve recently gotten into dry fruits/foods! Anything pumpkin flavored is okay in my book <3

  44. I never though of making pumpkin chips. I have a dehydrator and have used it to do several things, but I never even though of pumpkin. It’s a great idea.

  45. PUMPKINS!!!!! Lol I definitely need to try pumpkin chips!

  46. HAHA you are hilarious and I love the idea of these! The strangest name…. definitely Apple… like what?

    • LIKE WHAT is RIGHT!!! Apple is such a stupid name. I came across the name River the other day, and you know what? I actually kind of like it… Thoughts?

  47. These look like so much fun! Thanks for sharing!

  48. Um, I laughed out loud when you threw the chips in the grocery store. Hahaha. So funny.

    CHIPKINS! Let’s get chippy!

    Also, I am always referring to milk as cow juice from now on. Sick!

    • That footage a la iPhone 4… So so so so bad! ha ha ah! But I am glad you could KIND OF see it 😉 My sister and I cried from laughter after that for like 3 hours.

      And ugh, Cow Juice…. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit, LOL!

  49. Oh my goodness, who is that skeletal woman?? #SITSGirls

  50. I gotta try these babies. Time to use that dehydrator I bought 2 years ago and used once.

    • Ah ha ha! Right? That’s why I never bought one, cause I just felt like I would NEVER use it, but… It’s such a powerful TOOL!!!

  51. I love to make chips… sometimes in the oven and sometimes in the mike with a special silicone mat that I have for them.

  52. Dehydrating food seems so scary to me! Like it wouldn’t be “enough” – sweet enough, salty enough, IDK! But doing this in the oven is a great idea too. Pumpkin chips sound amaaaazing so I’m definitely bookmarking this!

    • I honestly was scared when I received this month’s “challenge” but then I hopped on trusty GOOGLE and he(??) calmed me down! It’s really not hard at all, and my kitchen smelled SOOO GOOD and it still does! 😉

  53. I am not a big fan of pumpkin, but have friends that are! I’ll definitely share this with them! :)

  54. I remember my grandparents had this gigantic food dehydrator when I was little and they never used it. It just hung out on top of their fridge. I’m kind of miffed now they weren’t making me chips my entire childhood.

    • A dehydrator is definitely one of those kitchen tools you buy on impulse thinking OMG SO COOL, use it once and then try to hide it somewhere in the kitchen cabinets. Ugh. But seriously, if you make pumpkin chips, you’ll probably use it weekly!!! 😉 Darnit grandparents! LOL!

  55. What if I want to dehydrate a jack-o-lantern huh?


    • I tried dehydrating a Jack-O-Lantern… Jack didn’t like it all that much.

      AND OMG OMG OMG STOP IT! Where is my dehydrated salmon care package you twat! (LOL – using your word)

  56. This is such a great idea! Love that you made pumpkin chips – they sound awesome! Such a cute post too girl – love how silly you are :)

    • Thanks Kelly!! 😉 And heck yes, this chips are AWESOME – however, what’s NOT SO AWESOME is how FAST they disappear! ha ha ha!

  57. Wow, pumpkin chips — I would have never thunk! When I was a kid we picked a ton of grapes at some farm and then my granola hippie parents dried out what we didn’t eat into raisins.

    • Who woulda thunkit! ha ha. I love that phrase!

      Aw man, if I were you I would have been pissed cause I hate raisins, LOL!!! 😉

  58. I have never made chips before!! Must try! Looks easy and delicious!

  59. Yummy!!! I love pumpkin and this is a perfect way to use it/preserve it especially cause when you cut one you usually have so much! Great idea. Thanks !

    • This would be pretty awesome to do come the end of Pumpkin Season – dehydrate a TON of pumpkin and then have pumpkin chips all summer long when you miss fall and winter! ha ha! :)

  60. I am LOVING this post! I didn’t know you could dehydrate pumpkin!! Amazing :) I can’t wait to give it a try :)

  61. I do have a dehydrator but I’ve never made pumpkin chips. They sound really good!

  62. OK, late to the party.

    This is great!! I am definitely going to try these! I like pumpkin and actually bought a small one last year, but didn’t know about this. I never eat processed chips!

    I thought there were only three ugly cats in the whole world, but now there are four!

    If Jim Carry could wear a bikini back in the day, any celebrity could, lol!

  63. Ooo! I love this!! I definitely want to give it a try! Chipkins sound so good. I’m not sure I can wait six hours though! Lol.

    • Ah ha! Right? When I was cooking it, every hour I would always sample a few 😉 ha ha ah! I was eating pumpkin ALL DAY LONG!

  64. Chipkins is an adorable name.
    I once worked with someone named Robin Hood, hahaha! She didn’t find it amusing when we first met and I thought she was teasing me about my name. Poor girl!
    I love these and I’m going to check out this link party. Sounds like a blast!
    And you were here on Monday this week – not Tuesday! lol

    • OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!!!! Robin Hood! THE BEST FLIPPING NAME EVER!!!! Now I just want kids in order to give them FUNNY NAMES LIKE THAT…. Maybe I should just get dogs and name them funny names, a little less mean?

      (And I know, I had to post on the 22nd – it was required by the Recipe Redux… But back to Tuesday next week!)

  65. YUM! Love everything pum pkin and I will have to whip some up when I have the dehydrator out for apples!

    • Please do! You will not be disappointed! 😀 😀 😀 PS: The apples may get a little jealous though because you might actually like PUMPKIN better! ha ha.

  66. This had me rolling!

  67. So apparently it’s time I get a dehydrator, huh?
    The Accidental Mama

  68. I don’t like pumpking :( But maybe my husband would like this recipe!

    • OMG OMG OMG ! I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like PUMPKIN! ha ha ha! But that’s okay, what about other winter squash? Butternut would work magically… or you can do sweet potatoes?

  69. Seriously loving all of your facial expressions in your photos!

  70. This actually looks delish and super easy – do you have to do anything to the pumpkin before slicing? Haha you always look like you’re wired on some shiz but that must be the natural energy I lack immensely . 😛 Have a great one lovely GiGi! -Iva

    • Not a thing to the pumpkin, unless maybe you want to wash it off? I even kept the skin on… More fiber, right?

      BAH HA HA HA!!! Are you talking about my weird freeze frames? LMFAO! At one of my jobs, they have a game when editing videos of me, LOL

      • Awesome – I’ll do that then – my bf LOVES pumpkin anything so will have to give this a go this weekend or some point when laziness isn’t evil.

        LOL I can only imagine the fun! You look so PUMPED in all your iamges and videos – like your eyeballs are about to pop out the damn socket!

        • I am ALWAYS PUMPED! And yes, my eyes totally pop out of my head a lot too, LOL! It tends to scare some people away… Oh well 😉

  71. Yumm! Looks delicious! And that first pic – someone pass her some water! LOL.

  72. I never would have known! This looks so yummy and easy too! I have to say that first picture is REALLY freaky! haha! Why would someone want to look like that?

  73. When are you going to start bagging and shipping this stuff so I don’t have to cut up a pumpkin and dehydrate it for six hours??? I’m willing to pay handsomely for it!!!! Please, just don’t make me cook!

  74. Chipkins or Pups…I’m kinda liking chipkins
    What’s the strangest name (for a person) you’ve ever heard? I have to give it Gwynee P and her “Apple”
    Who do you think is the most “dehydrated” (over-rated) celebrity in Hollywood? Practically all “‘reality” stars
    Favorite fall/winter food – go? Chili!
    What celebrity should never sport a teeny-tiny bathing suit? Hmmm maybe Channing Tatum because I may turn into a creepy stalker after that.

    • I couldn’t agree more – reality TV stars, UGH! Someone get me some water… LOL!
      And girl, I too wouldn’t mind seeing Mr. Tatum in a teeny-tiny bathing suit… Magic Mike # 2 – WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO THEATERS? LOL!

  75. omg tara red whats happened to her, cool recipe and link up

  76. Looks like I need a dehydrator! Those look great! Love the minimal ingredients and simplicity of this recipe :) I’m all about simplicity in the kitchen (mostly because I’m lazy!)

    • No you do not, use your trusty oven missy! 😉

      And I hear you – I am super simple and lazy in the kitchen too! But… NOT IN THE BEDROOM! BAHHH HA HA HA AH AH!

  77. These look really yummy! I love the pictures with you in them – too funny!

  78. Girl you’re cracking me up, and this recipe sounds tasty! I’ll definitely be trying it soon :)

  79. GiGi, you little genius. Pumpkin chips? No way! They are on my list now! :)

  80. yay for dehydrated foods!! 😉
    these look like a great snack!! love the name you came up with too!

  81. These sound delicious. I’ve always been interested in dehydrating food but I don’t want extra stuff in my kitchen and don’t want to leave my oven on forever, so I just buy it instead.

  82. ROFL! So funny. Thanks for the encouragement to try these. :)

  83. I say if one person can sport a tiny bathing suit then everybody gets to! Why should the fat person or the wrinkled person have to bake in a swimming dress on the beach and hide under a towel?
    Thanks for all these links. I’m going to make zucchini chips! although now that I read your post I also crave pumpkin seeds.

  84. I want, I want! Clever girl :)

  85. Chipkins sound very delicious and love how hilarious your post is :) And so many great posts, yummy!

  86. Oh my gosh, I’ve NEVER had pumpkin chips before… Need these in my life! I’m planning on making apple chips this week. Yum!

  87. At first I thought you were going to try to get me to buy a dehydrator. Between that new toy and my waffle maker… I’d probably be dehydrating waffle chips or some cray-cray shit.

    • Ah ha ha! Girl, I need a WAFFLE MAKER SOOOOOOO BADLY! I am making a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond tomorrow – for other things, but I am pretty sure I will be humping the waffle irons! LOL!

  88. I should use Amazon to order a dehydrator. My Prime membership just renewed. Did you know they don’t warn you about that $100 ding? And that they charge tax on it? I guess the only solution is to order a lot of stuff from Amazon so I feel like my Prime membership is money well spent. (Rant over), love the idea of pumpkin chips!

  89. Haha! When I started reading this I had no idea it would turn into a chip recipe! I have never heard of pumpkin chips before! Very cool.

  90. Love them! I could eat a dozen of them!

  91. I never thought to make pumpkin chips! Great idea 😀

  92. lol @ chip faced! Banana chips are my favorite!

  93. I like Chipkins! Such a cute name! …but then again so is pups! haha! Regardless, what a clever idea!! My brother has a dehydrator so I’ve had apple chips and dehydrated mango… but wouldn’t have even thought of pumpkin!! Great idea!

  94. You crack me up. That first picture is scary! I need to get a dehydrator.

  95. Whoa! I’ve never seen pumpkin chips before…must chomp. Thanks for adapting for those of us without dehydrators…

  96. woah this looks super yummy!!!!

  97. Yum, why have I never though of this? Sounds delicious.

    You’re a funny ass writer too, btw.

    • LOL! A lot of people haven’t though of this actually – it’s because be always associate pumpkins with being SCARY Jack-O-Lanterns or…… PIEEEEEE!!! 😉

  98. Oh my goodness, GiGi! You’re too funny :)
    Love the recipe! I have-have-have to try it when I get my hands on to the next pumpkin :)
    Thanks for linking up with the Tasty Tuesday this week, girl :)

  99. Ok…this looks interesting. I don’t have a dehydrator so thanks for the alt version.

    Thrifting Diva

  100. This is amazing!!!! I love dehydrating food esp when it’s about to go bad. Now I’m going to have to try this awesome recipe and the dehydrator-too cool! Another great post :) #wowlinkup

  101. Hi GiGi! Great recipe! You’re right, there are lots of creative recipes in the link up. Sarah Jessica Parker is looking pretty dehydrated nowadays I wouldn’t want to see her in a bathing suit.

    • You’re so right! I forgot about SJP! She always looked a little on the dehydrated side – ugh, girls gotta hydrate 😉

  102. Gigi, you are HILARIOUS :) Loved this post and loved this video! No chips in this house! Can’t wait to try out your Chimpkins!

  103. Lol, I laughed my way through most of your post. Your facial expressions crack me up. Love it.

    Chipkins. Amaze-balls.


  104. LOLZ at your pumpkin fail at first, I TOTES would have bought a jack o lantern type of pumpkin as well #there’sadifference #noonetoldme

  105. These sound SO GOOD. you’ve just solved my problem about how to eat pumpkin things without it being pumpkin bread, or pumpkin whatever that always has all the other sh*t in it. this is brilliant!! As for chipkins or pups- CAN WE CALL THEM BOTH?! i know the point is to make the name shorter, but i say we add a hyphen bc both are adorable 😀

    • Ah ha ha! RIGHT! There is always a pumpkin bread, pie, pancake, etc… But not a pumpkin chip 😉 UNTIL NOW! ha ha h! Chipkin-Pups it is! LOL

  106. Oh! My mom has a dehydrator. I need to try this!! Also, your pictures are amazing and entertaining!!

  107. You had me a pumpkin :) I have never tried to dehydrate foods but this looks like it works pretty well #wowlinkup

  108. Hmm, not sure I am feeling pumpkin chips but I am willing to try it. Does it taste anything like sweet potato chips? #wowlinkup

    • YOU HAVE TO try it! So good. Honestly though, I don’t know if it’s similar to sweet potatoes because I don’t eat them! They scare me **Don’t Ask** LOL!

  109. I would love to invite you to join us this weekend on #PureBlogLove Link party for DIY Crafters and Recipe bloggers. Runs Thursday Nights 8pm EST-Sundays at midnight every week. I hope to see you there.

    Heidy McCallum

  110. Oh, I love my dehydrator and these look amazing and so “fall-y!” I love everything pumpkin!

  111. Wow. So I learnt we dehydrate food, not people? I like it 😀

    Choc Chip Uru

  112. Thanks for coming and linking up at #The Weekend Social. Please be sure to come back next week starting Thursdays at 9PM EST on ! I hope to see you there!

  113. You’re so seasonal with the pumpkin chips!! I didn’t do recipe redux this month, I’m a failure, I just couldn’t think of what to do with a dehydrator…

    • You are not a failure! This is my first month doing the ReDux and when I saw dehydrated, I was like AW FU** – what the heck am I going to do! But I whipped this out of my brainnnnn! 😉

  114. I have a dehydrator that I’ve never used. I’m intimidated by it. So, I love the idea of using the oven to make these chips! PInning this one
