You would never think to make kale into chips…it is weird to cook and to eat. At least, it was the vegetable that my mom would buy and then cook like spinach and we would gulp down quickly.

Anyhow of course I was reading a back issue of Bon Appetite and read this and thought it would be yum. I was right. Beware, they are addicting.



a bunch of kale, rinsed, dried, cut lengwise in half, center ribs and stems removed

1 tablespoon of oilve oil

Preheat oven to 250. Toss kale with oil in large bowl. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Arrange leaves in single layer on one or more baking sheets. Bake until crisp; about 30 minutes for flat leaves and up to 33 minutes for curly leaves. Eat. Yum.

Craftiness of my sister Clara: (i love love love it!)

She’d make you one for your phone or iPod or mp3 player if you wanted.

because i want to paint something like this.

because this sounds so good and i want to make it.

because i want to sew this.

because i want to be here; in edinburgh, scotland.

the end.

this is the story of today: sewing madly. running around madly. tea in between and sore feet.


i like to sew, but sometimes patterns are a pain in the butt and kind of depressing. my favorite kind of sewing is the kind where you only have to adjust or take in, or sew a button or two in a certain place, and viola!!

a new dress to wear to the senior banquet. i love recyling. even as much as i love thirft stores.

i made this out of an old skirt i found that belonged to my mom. i found it in the mending basket. all the dress needs is a belt to make it look like i spend a long time sewing a beautiful vintage dress when really all i did was sew a button to hold it together up top.
