it's the time of year where everything is so alive
~ with blooms
~ with raindrops
~ with shades of green so lush, you want to taste it

salt & vinegar kale chips ~ i used rice vinegar & sprinkled with salt & pepper. after some experimenting, i baked for 6 minutes, flipped the leaves and baked for an additional 3 minutes. consume immediately.

pan-seared asparagus, c/o dw. lest you think i was lazy, i contributed with a roasted chicken. that'll come later this week. promise.

Very simple prep. Wash the spears, chop the woody ends off, and peel the ends of the largest spears. Dry. Mix a drizzle of balsamic vinegar with a drizzle of olive oil. Add fresh ground black pepper. Toss asparagus in oil/vinegar mixture to coat. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Saute in a medium-high heat pan until reach desired doneness.


  1. oh oh oh so I went to a thing this weekend and someone brought kale chips (i'd never had them before...very good!). Their secret ingredient was nutritional yeast because it gave them a cheesy flavor...had you ever tried that? I once lived with someone who liked nutritional yeast on popcorn, which i'm thinking now was not as good of an introduction to the stuff as kale chips

  2. yoli, thank you!

    foxflat, i have not tried nutritional yeast and i agree, i think i would be a good introduction if used on kale chips or popcorn. this is now filed under stuff that must be dw. thank you for the tip.
