Crispy Kale

Crispy kale chips seem to be spreading like a house-o-fire over the last year as a healthy tasty snack alternative.  At the grocery store a small bag goes for about $3!  As some of you have discovered it’s pretty durn easy to make and a heck of a lot cheaper than buying it at the store.

No matter the year we seem to have an over abundance of dark greens.  Mike can’t just plant one he plants many.  We end up eating mountains of the stuff, blanching more, and taking the extras to the food bank so it turns out to be a win-win.  This year is no different….

I head out to pick some kale.  Now this year I have two big change-up’s  for my crispy kale chips.  The first is to use ‘Dinosaur Kale’.

Hearth-n-Soul Blog Hop

If you’ve been following us for the past couple months one thing should be clear by now…I like chocolate chip cookies.  Having finally found the perfect chocolate chip cookie, my next quest has been to find a gluten-free option.  I’ve found that when my joint pain gets annoying going gluten-free for 30 days helps reduce it.    We eat very little processed foods in our house so I turned to the recipe world out there. I’ve tried a few but didn’t love for the results.  Well, search and ye shall find.

Leslie, the owner/founder of Momocakes is our first sponsor!!  We were talking about where we would place her ad and my idea of  a video with the two of us baking and I went for it:  would she be willing to share her amazing delicatible recipe for her gluten-free chocolate chip cookies?

Yes!  was her response.

Yippee!  was mine! » » »
