Food, Felt, Foil, Fun
These days I'm getting geared up for the gifting season. The ideas are churning up faster than my time allows them to come to fruition. I've spent a lot more time in the kitchen lately; it seems my craving for soup and veggies is insatiable. One would think I'm pregnant the way my body is dictating my diet so ferociously. But no little sprouts are to blame.
My Hooping instructor, Caroleeena, shared with me a wonderful recipe for a delicious, crispy Kale snack that has been a huge hit with not only me but our 3 year old son as well. Thanks Caroleeena!
Crispy Kale Snacks
Heat oven to 350f.
Wash and pat dry a big bunch of kale. Remove the thick stalks down the middles of the leaves and discard.
Spread leaves out on a baking sheet in one layer. Spray with a little olive oil (NOT Pam) and rub the leaves a bit to distribute the oil. Bake at 350 for 10-15 min. or until crispy to the touch. Most definitely check them at 10 mins. if your oven runs hot.
Sprinkle with a dash of salt if desired, but it really doesn't need it!
