Kale Chips and Some Awards

I have been meaning to make kale chips for quite some time now, and yesterday I finally made some for the first time with the baby kale I received in my first CSA delivery. I simply seasoned the kale with salt, pepper, & some oil and then baked it at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.

Not all the kale pieces were crispy, but I was afraid I would burn the kale. Next time I’ll definitely bake it a bit longer though…

Nevertheless, the toddler LOVED the chips (and so did hubby and I). Kale chips will definitely make a frequent appearance in our house…

Several weeks ago, Nicole at Prevention RD passed on two awards to me. I read Nicole’s blog every day and really enjoy the nutrition info she passes on to her readers. Plus, she shares awesome recipes. Thank you for the awards, Nicole!

happy 101 (Nicole)

I am supposed to share 10 things that make me happy with you:
  1. Family
  2. Friends
  3. Doing “nothing”
  4. Reading a book for pleasure
  5. Walking on the beach
  6. Fresh, homegrown tomatoes – can’t wait for tomato season!!!
  7. My indoor basil plant
  8. Cheese – just a tiny bit at a time as too much makes my gallstones very unhappy
  9. Playing like a kid
  10. The color pink

Thanks again, Nicole! Also, Nicole is currently putting together a cookbook. Send her a recipe by January 1, and she’ll include it in the cookbook and provide you with an electronic copy of the cookbook.

Question: What makes you happy?

Be well,
