Kitchen Crazy Kale Greek Salad with lemon and Olive Oil Dressing

       With all the scary stories in reference to lettuce I decided to make a salad using a hardier green. Kale has a great personality for this recipe and it also will not wilt like lettuce therefore having a better shelf life in the fridge. Make it for dinner tonight and it will […]

Tomato with Yogurt Guacamole Dip Recipe

  Avocados are plentiful in the market this week and the prices are reasonable. This is a refreshing and simple recipe to whip up. I whipped this up and allowed it to chill while I was making the pita chips. Although I used the NutriBullet for this recipe you can use a blender, standing mixer […]
