Easy Smoky BBQ Kale Chips (That Can Be Made in Your Oven!)

You know how certain situations just feel as if they’ve been that way forever? I mean, I can’t even recall what our lives were like before we had Elsie and Chaser. The first time I visited New York City, I felt totally at home, and knew I’d be back often. With some of my blogging […]

Kitchen Classics: Kale Salad, Fully Loaded

[With added hemp seeds, sprouts, radish, apple and chopped pecans] It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here in the DDD household, what with mega-marking for my classes at the college, a whirlwind trip to Montreal (more on that anon), the regular array of doctor’s appointments, a quick visit for a dental emergency (my molar […]

Crazy Simple Raw Kale Salad
