Honest Kitchen: Kale chips

What has the crunch of a potato chip and is salty like a potato chip but is not a potato chip? A kale chip! I didnt believe it either until a friend of mine made them for me and I was hooked.  They take maybe 10 minutes to make and are incredibly yummy.

Here is what you need:
EVOO or cooking spray
toping: salt, garlic powder... any seasoning that you want!

Step 1:
Rip the kale into pieces.  You dont need to be fancy, just get them into pieces.

Step 2: Space the pieces out on a cookie sheet

Step 3: brush with EVOO or spray with cooking spray
Step 4: Season.  I used salt
Step 5: Put over on 300 and put kale in.  You are going to want to stay close.  These things take maybe 5 minutes to cook.
Step 6: Remove from over when the pieces are dried.

Step 7: Eat all of the good ones and serve the rest ;) The brown spots are fine.  They just dried quicker than the others - possibly because they didnt get coated.

These things really do take like potato chips and are incredibly healthy for you.  They are great if you want the crunch of a chip.  I dare you to try them!


  1. Hmmmm..not sure about this..

  2. If you're game, I'll make them for you sometime. Eyes closed, you may not be able to tell them apart from a lays potato chip

The unlikely bear hunter

Jesse Phillips had no intention of bear hunting.  He was along for the ride with friend and host of Blood Origins , Robbie Kroger, who was on his annaul bear hunt with Grove Hill Outfitters .  Being convinced that he should go hunt, Jesse grabbed the 45-10 and headed into a treestand.  He wore his cowboy boots, jeans and flannel, "the only thing I didn't do was put on deoterant" Jesse laughed.  Climbing up into the stand a little before 2pm, he held no expectations for seeing his first bear in the wild.  He was doing this just to apease the guys in camp.  At 4:02, a bear appeared. "He was about 40 yards away," explained Jesse, "and he was just walkeding around, sniffing and eating.  He wasn't interested in the bait at all."  Watching the bear, Jesse knew he needed to remain calm. He was in no position to move his gun and take a shot without the bear spooking. The bear walked in and out of the opening with no intention of heading to the bait. Jesse

Grateful for the community

I am technically an adult-onset hunter.   I started when I was twenty after watching Dad hunt every fall and deciding that I wanted to see what it was all about – and that killing your own meat was not a bad thing. If you had asked me (or dad) to imagine what the next decade and a half would be like, I guarantee you neither of us would have pictured this! As I write this, I have just hung up the phone with Taylor and Mark Drury. Throughout deer season, I will be writing up all of the Drury family hunts that will be featured on DeerCast (make sure you have the app or the website bookmarked!) I am also going to continue interviewing hunters from across the country and Canada that have taken amazing deer. Just like last year when I got to f eature Wayne Bernier  from Allagash Adventures after he dropped his amazing 200lb, 20 point buck with a 31 inch spread! The fact that I get to do this blows my mind. I get to share a mutual love and excitement over hunting with so many people and

The Blood Origins Project

"I was looking for a narrative that described who we are as hunters,” my friend Robbie Kroger explained to me, “Essentially looking for an authentic truth about who we are. I couldn't find it. So we built it with Blood Origins.” If you have never heard of Blood Origins, set aside a solid hour and watch the videos on their website or YouTube, featuring some of the most influential people in the hunting world. People like Will Primos , Cuz Strickland and Jim Shockey all share a small piece of their story and the how and why hunting was so important. Robbie has more than 30 unique stories from hunters, nonhunters, men, women, veterans, young and old and each one is a personal look into the importance of hunting and conservation. “It is about our community, and conveying the truth around hunting” said Robbie. The fact that Robbie and I even connected is a testament to the power of the hunting community. As a native South African, American and Mississippian, Robbie was determined
