- Large bunch of radishes
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of fresh herbs ( I like to use rosemary or oregano) There have been several times when I did not have fresh herbs on hand, dried herbs work just as well.
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and black pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 160 celsius.
- Thinly slice radishes.
- In bowl, toss radishes with oil, herbs, salt and pepper.
- Line in a single layer on parchment paper, place on baking sheet.
- Place on middle rack of oven for 15 minutes. Turn radishes over and back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes until they are golden and crisp.
- Let cool, and enjoy!
|Time to get cutting.|
|Time for the oven. Note: this time I omitted the herbs on Little Miss L.'s request.|

|Humm, which one will I chose?|
|Time for my snack (and it's healthy too!)|
|These sure are yummy!|

If you are in the Ottawa area and looking for a venue to host your next birthday, check out Monkey Around. The kids will love it, and the adults too!

here) I followed the recipe except I did not have chocolate covered pretzel m&m's on hand, so we went with the plain m&m's and added some other candy covered chocolates. The final product turned out just how we expected, it was a great savoury treat for the whole family to enjoy...
|Pretzels, m&m's, and candy covered chocolate.|
|We love our popcorn machine we received this past Christmas. It popped the perfect popcorn for our treat.|
|I love love love watching Little Miss L.'s reaction when the popcorn pops and she thinks it is going to get her.|
|She thinks this contraption is absolutely hilarious.|
