Baked Kale Chips

I had some leftover kale from a recipe and I didn't want it to go to waste so I decided to bake some kale chips.

There are tons of recipes online, but I just washed and cut the leaves, tossed them with some olive oil, spread them out onto a greased cookie sheet, and sprinkled them with some coarse sea salt.

Then I put them into the oven at about 350 degrees until the edges were brown but not burnt. About 10-15 minutes but I'd closely watch them to make sure they don't burn.

Also, as you'd expect, the kale gets way smaller once it's been baked so if you're wanting a lot of chips, you'll need a lot of kale. I filled up one large cookie sheet with the kale and ended up with about 2-3 servings of chips.

I probably wouldn't make this again; kale is fine, I just don't love it.

What's a healthy snack you'd recommend?

S'Mores Pizza and Other Junk Food

I petsat this weekend and got an insane amount of snacks from the family. Northwest Pearls: Junk Food

This isn't even everything they got me to snack on. There were a few things in the fridge I didn't pull out for the photo.

I didn't even open about half of the food.

Something that they got me was a s'mores pizza from Papa Murphy's. I got for savory over sweet but I cooked it and tried it out.

It was not that great. I don't know if it's just me but I had about two bites of it before I threw the piece in the trash and put the rest of the pizza in the fridge. All the other food I got though was pretty good. And I like normal s'mores, just not the pizza kind apparently.

Have you ever had a s'mores pizza? What did you think?
