Best snack ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay I was super skeptical at first....but I kept hearing about Kale Chips!   I I don't really like kale on its own so why would I like it baked in the oven and how will this replace potato chips??

Well to tell you the truth it wont replace potato chips but it did make a super yummy melt in your mouth (literally by the way melt in your mouth!!) snack that is a good source of fibre.

Here is how I made them:

Preheat the oven to 325
rip the kale leaves away from the stem (thats the really bitter part) - I recommend bigger versus smaller pieces!
Spin, pat whatever you like to do...just make sure the kale is dry
make your oil mixture - mine was olive oil, sesame oil, hot oil and fresh galic

dip your fingers in the oil and then massage the oil into the leaves.
Lay the leaves on the try and make sure they do not overlap.
sprinkle with sea salt and garlic pepper.

Put in oven for 5 minutes
pull out and flip over leaves

put back in oven for 4 or 5 minutes (you need to watch - don't let them go brown!)

let cool and put in a dry container that seals (not a plastic bag as they are kind of fragile!

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us


 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
