Oh Happy Day

Well today is Happy for a couple reasons...

Happy Groundhogs day
Happy Birthday to my sweet 16 daughter Katie!

Today I tried a new recipe - KALE CHIPS

I was reminded of reading of the idea as I strolled through the produce department, always looking for something new and unusual to try. Simple put you wash your Kale, tear the greenery from the stems in 2-3 pieces per stalk. Add them to a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and totally cover them all, tossing with your hands and kinda massaging them.

Place them on a baking sheet, spread out, sprinkled with salt and bake at 200 degrees for about 30mins. Keep an eye on them - cause they can pass from done to burnt pretty quick!
While they were cooking I was a bit unsure what they were going to taste like, as I wasn't sure the smell coming from the oven was edible...but to my surprise they are amazing! I look forward to having them with a sandwich tomorrow!


  1. ya know...I have never eaten kale...maybe I should try it.

  2. Happy Sweet 16 to Katie!

    I haven't eaten it either so will have to check it out.

  3. That is one I haven't tried. I am going to though, thanks! Happy birthday to your daughter.

  4. if you need kale chip links, try this one on for size my dear. the coating is PHENOMENAL and you can eat it by the spoon as veggie dip too :)
    nooch = nutritional yeast but if you're not vegan, just use some parsm cheese. Or omit.
    Oven method totally fine too. You're totally on top of it! WIsh you could give advice to the 89 other readers who write to me every day w/ questions about ovens/dehydrators LOL


Who did you choose today?
