Sunday ramblings and Kale Chips!

Alright friends, I gotta be real about something.  Truth time.  I am going to throw away an entire waffle iron this morning.  It pissed me off one too many times.  There are few things in this world that irritate me more than malfunctioning kitchen equipment!  So the WHOLE iron (ruined waffle still inside) is going in the trash…as soon as it cools down enough to be handled.  That’ll teach you to destroy an epic waffle and smoke up my entire house!! Oh hell no, enjoy the trashcan.

This weekend has been kind of crazy.  Lots of stuff is going down, so I have just been trying to maintain the calm!  In an effort to do that, I haven’t gotten ANYTHING prepped for the week in terms of meal-planning or food, so it’s going to be an interesting afternoon for sure!  But this week should be GREAT in terms of recipes!  I’m trying out a couple of new things, as well as  making some old favorites.  Love it!

Quick recipe for you today!  Just my plain old kale chips.  They are highly addictive.  I have a serious problem with them, for REAL!  People always ask me how I store them so they don’t get all soggy.  Honestly, I couldn’t tell you how to store them….because I never have any to store.  Once I make them, addiction kicks into high gear and I go into BINGE mode on these poor little guys!  Eh, I suppose there are FAR worse things I could be addicted to… heroin, or meth.  THAT would be a real problem.

Kale Chips

  • 1 bunch or bag of kale (honestly, it doesn’t matter which kind you use, you want the curly stuff, buy the curly stuff.  You want dino kale, get the dino….your choice!)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  3. Evenly spread kale onto your baking sheets.  Make sure you remove any thick stems at this point, they don’t get so delicious when they bake.  If using whole kale, tear the leaves into pieces.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss on your spices.
  5. Get down and dirty and mix it all up using your hands.  Spread the kale into an even layer once all of it has been coated with the oil and spices.
  6. Bake for 10-20 minutes.  Start checking at 10 minutes and keep checking every couple of minutes until kale is crispy and starting to brown.  (Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the kale and how much you have crammed onto your baking sheet)
  7. Devour.  They are salty, crispy, and delicious!!

Enjoy these!  And seriously, I dare you to try and not eat the entire pan.  I DARE YOU!!! I’m betting it can’t be done….and if you CAN do it, you have a hell of a lot more willpower than I do!  Much love!
