This week it was all about our easy. We shared our very easy to make Traditional Christmas Tablescape and also a super easy recipe that you can serve for your family this holidays. When we shared our tablescape and you may have noticed our table included food. After all you can’t have a family dinner without the food, so we promised that we would share the recipes as well. We have already shared our very delicious Cornish Hens with Herb Fingerling Potatoes and today I want to share with you our Mixed Collard Greens, Kale & Zucchini. Kale was a big thing in the summer and if you have never had Kale I would suggest giving it a try. Kale chips is by far one of the easiest chips that you can make and it is pretty good too. The kids just love it. You can also do smoothies with kale and kale believe it or not has been dubbed one of the worlds healthiest foods. Packed full of nutritional value it is also a good source of dietary fiber. So while you’re stuffing your face this holidays with all the yummy foods that you are going to be making, don’t forget your fiber, in this case, don’t forget your kale.
