Homemade kale chips are amazing!!!! Gotta snap a picture quick before I eat them all!!!


I bought a bunch of kale to use in a dinner and I forgot about it. So I am trying new things with kale.

Preheat oven to 350
Wash and dry kale, remove from stems and tear into bit size pieces.
Place on parchment lined cookie sheet
Drizzle with olive oil and season however you like (I used garlic salt)
Cook for 10-15 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.

Eat the whole pan.
Make another batch.
Try not to eat that whole pan.
Store for later delight.

APPlying What We Have Learned


Meal planning just got APPed! Well maybe not JUST, but for me this is a new development. The app is called pepperplate and it is also a website. In this app you can meal plan, add recipes, create shopping lists based on those recipes, and it all its synced on your phone, tablet and computer.

I put in one recipe as a trial to see how difficult it would be and what features it had. It was quite simple to create a new recipe. I was able to upload a photo, add a description of the dish, and add notes to the dish. I really like the notes section because I can track what I make and for whom I make it. Add recipes to your menu plan or shopping list is simply done by clicking on Add To and making your choice on the drop down menu.

This app gets 31 stars from me! (As in Proverbs 31…ok a little cheesy but I really couldn’t resist).

One Pan Chicken Dinner

This is a recipe that I believe I got from a Raley’s magazine. I apologize that I don’t remember exactly, I had tore it out of a magazine and so I do not have the actual source.

I recently tested this recipe on some dinner guests (normally a bad idea to try and untried recipe on guests, but it worked out well for me in this case) and I loved it! It was so fast and easy to do. It took me a little longer in prep because I was using a whole chicken and had to watch a youtube video on how to quarter a chicken. In spite of that it was still quite fast. I was able to have the table set and kitchen cleaned quite a while before the guests arrived.

I also could not find Yukon Gold potatoes and wasn’t certain which ones were yellow fleshed so I grabbed bag of small potatoes that looked yellow to me. They were delicious. It also took a trip around the vegetable aisle before I saw the word Parsnip and found out what they looked like. They only had one choice at my store, some very fat Parsnips, so I grabbed two. It was plenty.

The original recipe didn’t have Rosemary, that was my addition.


Makes 4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 50 Minutes
One 3 1/2 to 4 pound chicken quartered, rinsed, and patted dry
2 1/2 tablespoons Olive Oil
5 Yellow Fleshed Potatoes cut into 4 wedges (Like Yukon Gold)
4 Thin Carrots peeled and cut into 2 inch length
4 Thin Parsnips peeled and cut into 2 inch length
10 Thyme Sprigs
2 Rosemary Sprigs or 2 Tablespoons dried Rosemary

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rub chicken with 1/2 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes. While that is roasting toss the veggies with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, salt and pepper. Place veggies around chicken, sprinkle with herbs. Roast until tender, approximately 40 minutes.
