I'm still eating my way through winter. What else can I do? Thankfully our power didn't go out after the last storm, an ice storm, but as of yesterday some homes in the area were still without and my heart goes out to everyone struggling with this crazy weather.
I took a break from cookies, breads and pies and finally made a contribution to the kale band wagon. It's super simple and very tasty with lots of crunch (especially since I served it with a side of wasabi chic peas). And of course, super fortifying, absolutely brimming with good stuff for your body!! There's a lot of winter out there and I want to be ready for it!
