- a bunch of kale (wash and spin or shake off water, you don't want wet kale)
- olive oil
- sea salt (to taste)
Preheat oven to *325 degrees.
Tear kale off of its stem into bite size pieces. Place onto a baking sheet and drizzle with enough olive oil to coat. Sprinkle with sea salt. I toss it all with my hands, makes it much easier to coat evenly and spread them into a single layer.

As a family, we make REAL homemade maple syrup at the end of each winter when the sap starts a runnin'! When we ran out at the end of this past November we were in a pinch and had to buy from the store. It was a huge reality check!
In one 12 ounce, store bought bottle (which by the way is only 2% REAL maple syrup) there were 35 grams of sugar, with the first ingrediant being High Fructose Corn Syrup. The next ingrediants...corn syrup, added water, maple syrup, cellulose gum, artificial flavoring, various preservatives, and added caramel color! Wow, isn't that a mouthful!?!?

Beautiful, creamy, fresh, homemade yogurt! With NO PRESERVATIVES & NO ADDITIVES! So much healthier and alot cheaper than store bought! All of this yogurt only cost me $1.70 to make!
You will find many processes to make homemade yogurt online. Anything from making it on the stove top, to in the oven, even in a picnic cooler! But, I highly recommend making it in a Crock Pot! It was unbelievably easy, with virtually no mess!
I used Sarah's Musings recipe in my Crock Pot and honestly, don't think I'll ever attempt any other method!
So far we've eaten it with granola, mashed banana, fresh blueberries, strawberries, even kiwi! It is wonderful in smoothies as well!
Give it a go, and let me know what you think!
