I'mmmmmmmmmmmm backkkkkkkkkkk!!! I know I know, it's been forever since I wrote a post. Well okay, almost two weeks, but damn it feels longer. I'm so sorry but I had some personal growth to do and now I feel better than ever :) and I am happy with the steps I've taken in the last couple of weeks and have re-lit the flame of my passion again and it feels great! My baking and blog no longer feels like a chore (cue the happy dance), which really had me down, but now being rejuvenated, I am ready to hit the ground running :)
So I have found some great outlets with some supportive women to help me get through my bad days, there is even a luncheon that we have once a week which means a whole new group of people to feed my baked goods. At first I was nervous (surprise surprise) about having a whole slew of people trying my treats, but then I just reminded myself that I'll only get better when I have a wider spectrum of people's feedback. It might sound funny, but I feel like a new woman, with an even brighter flame for my "torch of passion" ;) and I am trying new things and recipes like nobody's business.
Now the recipe I have for you guys tonight isn't a new one, it's actually a new version of a recipe I've shared with you before. It also isn't one that I brought to the luncheon, those babies will start coming out tomorrow, and they are yummy and delicious. So do you remember waayyyy back when I introduced myself to kale? Well I was in the grocery store a week or so ago when I came across it in the produce section again, and I decided that I would make it again but would change it up a little bit. Without further ado, I present to you my new and "fresh" kale chips!
1) Preheat oven to 350F. Wash the kale and mint, cut the leaves off of the spine, chopping the leaves into bite size pieces and place in a bowl.
2) Add olive oil (maybe a couple of tablespoons, I don't use measurements) and all of the spices. Toss the mixture to distribute the spices and oil evenly.
