Kale chips

I’ve heard about these things but hadn’t tried them until yesterday. My boys won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. My hubby was brave and tried it. It was not his thing. However he did try it so that’s a plus.

I burnt mine but couldn’t stop snacking on them. They were addictive.

Buffalo Wing Hummus

I love hummus. I love dipping carrots or celery in it. I have never tried to make it until now. It is so simple to make if you have a food processor or blender.

This hummus has the flavor of buffalo wings without all the fat and calories. Delicious!

It passed he hubby test.
