Coconut Macaroons

Macaroons are one of the few desert recipes that are kosher for passover all on their own.

So naturally this was the second recipe I tried this week.

Never having made macaroons before I was a little nervous, but they are really simple.  Once the egg whites were beaten it just requires a gentle hand to fold in the other ingredients.

Baked Potato Chips

Some days require savory, juicy burgers.  Some days require fresh, green salads.  And some days require potato chips.

Potato chips are one of my comfort foods.  While some girls may go out and get a carton of ice cream after a breakup/fight/bad day, I turn to potato chips.  Some days the salty crunch of chips makes me feel better.  If only for a few moments.

Kale Chips

For the last year I’ve read and wondered about Kale.  I’m not a big salad person, sure I enjoy salads and occassionally crave something green but for the most part Kale didn’t sound that appealing.  Well, I’ve tried it finally and I’m jumping on the Kale train cause these chips were amazing!

Raw Kale tastes like grass to me.  These chips taste nothing like grass.  Instead they took on the flavor of the topping.  Light, crunchy bite size chips with tons of flavor and no guilt.

The salt kale chips almost taste like popcorn.  I think I’ve found a new movie snack.  And the sesame seed chips were even better; flavorful, crisp and so good.  I can’t wait to try more toppings like Parmesan, curry, or red pepper.
