Hey out there! I’m so excited to share with you a fabulous blogger, Miss Shachi from Two Penny Parties. This is one talented gal with lots of tasty recipes and, of course, entertaining ideas, games and the like. Today she’s over here at Dream a Little Bigger sharing a recipe I’m dying to try! Spicy Garlic Kale Chips. In fact, I just so happen to have a fresh bunch in my refrigerator that just might have to get the Shachi treatment today! Let’s meet this fab blogger in her own words:
Hi there, awesome Dream a Little Bigger fans! My name is Shachi and I’m the blogger behind Two Penny Parties, a site for budget friendly event planning! I pour my heart and soul in to that little corner of the internet, so I hope you stop by once you’ve finished scouring the awesome posts here at Dream a Little Bigger! Allison is such a great inspiration to bloggers like me so I really hope you take in everything her site has to offer (because it’s a lot!).
Before I jump in to the recipe I’m excited to share with you, here’s a bit about me. I’m a thirty-something gal who over the past decade has called Boston, San Francisco, and Washington, DC home. My professional background is in finance (in fact, I have a graduate degree in it!), and I use Two Penny Parties to eek out every ounce of the creative side of my brain as often as possible. I’ve been blessed to have traveled all over the world and cannot seem to get enough of everything this awesome planet has to offer. In addition to adding stamps to my passport, I love volunteering. You’ll often find me helping out at local food banks, teen afterschool centers, museums, and even professional networking organizations.
One of my 2014 resolutions is to eat cleaner and healthier. I carefully step away from the office candy jar in the afternoons, and am working hard to refocus my eating habits toward better foods. (Shhh, sometimes I sneak a mini-Reeses PB cup though!) Kale has become a staple in my diet, since I’m a vegetarian and it is unbelievably healthy (helloooo, iron!). I recently discovered baking kale leaves results in an incredible crispy, chip like texture and now I can’t get enough of it. Click on the photo below to peek at my Two Penny Parties recipe for spicy kale chips. I hope you enjoy it!
- 1 bunch kale, washed
- 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3/4 garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Allison! I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful opportunity, I’m tickled Two Penny Parties pink!
Oh, gosh. Doesn’t that sound so good and healthy? I’m seriously all over this! Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe and guest post, Saschi! Be sure to head over to Two Penny Parties if you haven’t yet to see what else this talented lady can cook up!
