Recipe Friday - Kale Chips

Hey everyone! It's been months since my last recipe Friday post. I get really sick when I'm pregnant and I knew I wouldn't be able to keep it up during those 9 months. To be honest, I still don't know if I'll be able to post a recipe EVERY Friday because life with a newborn, AND a 2 year old AND a 3 1/2 year old is CRAZY!!! Any way, here's a recipe for this week.

I saw this on the Ellen Show. Gwyneth Paltrow was demonstrating some of the recipes from her cook book and this was one that her kids loved. Later that week one of my super healthy friends posted on facebook about how much she loves kale chips.

Kale Chips


- 1 bunch of kale, washed and cut into bite size pieces (ribs removed)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- sprinkle of salt

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Spread the kale over the waxed paper.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt.

Place in the oven at 270 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy. Let cool before eating.

Pat Myself on the Back

Sometimes I wonder if my kids are ever learning anything valuable from me. I often feel like they only pick up the not-so-nice habits from my husband and I. Like when Rosie (3 and a half years old) screamed "listen to me right now" at her brother the other day.

Well the other day Rosie proved that she is learning something great. I filled a couple bowls with Goldfish crackers and gave one to Joseph and one to Rosie. Rosie said "no thank you. Goldfish are not healthy. I want an apple." I was so excited to hear that! Then five minutes later, Dave walked into the house with McDonalds french fries. I thought Rosie would eat them for sure, but.... "french fries aren't healthy Daddy." Wooo hoooo!!! I'm so glad she's starting to understand. It was one of those "oh I'm such a good mommy" moment :) Now if only I could convince my husband that french fries are not healthy.

New Baby!

I know it's a month late (4 weeks to be exact) but I'd like to finally announce the arrival of baby #3! We welcomed baby Michael on June 3rd at 7:50 am. He weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce, a lot less than Joseph did, and I could totally feel the difference in labor. He has blond hair and blue eyes (so far, things might change)and he's as cute as ever. I love him so much and am so happy to have him as part of our family. More birth details coming soon-ish.
