the return of the home-cooked meal

We were in Halifax for the last week, and as much as we both loved all the delicious seafood (especially the mussels, which of course taste even better when eaten with beer on the harbour), we have definitely reached our eating-out limit, to the point of craving green food. What is it about eating at restaurants that discourages eating any veggies???

Seared pork blade steak

Kale chips

"Green" Cole Slaw: green cabbage, green apple, green onion, kohlrabi, mayo and vinegar


  1. Oh wow, suddenly kale chips are everywhere. I think this is the third time I've seen them on various blogs in the past two days, having never even considered the possibility of their existence before. Are they difficult to make? I ask because I've watched people try to fry greens before and it has spattered badly because of the water content of the greens.

  2. Ahh, wait, did you bake the kale? I've found a recipe for kale chips that involves baking them, which makes a lot more sense.

  3. Jess -- these are **baked** kale chips, which I have only been obsessed with for the past few weeks (you'll notice that they are everywhere!).

    Here's a link to the post with my recipe (if you can call something this easy a recipe!)
