Kale Chips!!

So, if you couldn’t guess from the title we’re making KALE CHIPS. When I first heard about Kale, I was like what?!?! What is all of this fuss over some random vegetable? But, now that I have whipped up my own batch of Kale Chips, I see what everyone is chatting about. Because they were so good, enfaces on good.

I found this recipe some where other from Pinterest for a change-Youtube! I recently came across Ayesha Curry who is Stephen Curry, the famous basketball player’s wife, Ayesha has her own food and lifestyle blog (I guess these are pretty popular hehe) called Little Lights of Mine, which she also has a Youtube page for. Her recipes and videos are simple, family oriented, and fun, which I love!

Her Kale chip recipe is easy to follow and works out perfectly.

Here are the simple steps that I took

I didn't have the seasoning mix that she had, so I improvised with Lawrys Seasoned Salt and a separate onion powder.

Looking at my pictures I didn’t get an after the oven pic, but the kale is nice and crunchy. I’d say don’t leave them in there any longer than about 17 minutes or they will start burning.

But, that’s it! As simple as following her what like four step process. There are also plenty of other ways you can jazz up your kale, get creative with your favorite spices in your cabinet.

Bacon Wrapped Avocados Drizzeled with Chili Maple Syrup Served With Shredded Potatoes

Hello Hello everyone, here we are again with another food post recipe that I am BEYOND excited to share with you all!! As you read in the long title I choose I made Bacon Wrapped Avocados along with shredded potatoes for breakfast/brunch (whatever you want to call eating at 12pm) and it rocked my freakin world! so, lets just dive into it…

I found this recipe, like most of my others, on pinterest. During the prep I was a little worried about how they would turn out, hoping they wouldn’t be some sort of pinterest fail. BUT, once I finished those babies and cleaned my plate I was more than happy with my discovery and I. Need. More.

Final product, before I destroyed this plate of deliciousness

Now, the website I used says “….fries”, which is in fact a cute idea if you’re not like me ad can keep your food looking pretty ha. Leaving the avocados in the oven to keep the bacon coking was burning the run-off syrup, so I decided to improvise a little by taking them out of the oven and throwing them in a pan over medium heat for about 2 minutes or less on each side, crisping up the bacon perfectly!

I paired my avocados with shredded potatoes that are already pre-made, you just throw them in the pan to heat and crisp them up. But, you can pair yours with anything your heart desires, maybe a nice bakery croissant, toast, even pancakes!

Enjoy every bite as you eat and remember to make it with love it’ll taste better.

Back with M O R E

Wow! Its been soooo long! Way too long actually since my last post. For a while I was getting bored with blogging and feeling like I was running out of content, but I guess as long as my heart is beating I have something to post (right?)

So, where I have been? I’ve been busy graduating!! Whaaat?!

Yes, I am now a college graduate who holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications and a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies (enfaces in Radio/Television). What do I want to do with that… Im not fully sure actually. I have an abundance of interest, s that’s making narrowing it down harder than it should be. I’m really interested in the medical field (a nurse or PRN), higher education (a freshmen counselor most likely) or maybe even something in the broadcast field as a Radio DJ or something. But, really who knows! I’m such a go with the flow kind of person and I just like to go where life takes me.

As for right now I’m at home with my family whom I adore and missed ohh so much! My pup Ebony is such a big girl and I think she’s happy to have her mommy home. (I’d insert a pic here, but I’m being lazy…*check Christmas post ha) I’m currently a waiter at a little restraint here, but that’s almost over just because it is caaa-razy and the food industry is NOT for Loryn I am learning.

None the less, I’m just walking this journey called life and trying to take in and or learn from whatever is thrown at me. Hope you enjoyed this post…leave comments below!
