Kale to the Chief - Spicy Kale with Walnuts

I have been preparing for a couple of smoothie/juice workshops I'm giving at the local library in August (free and open to the public by the way... there are still a few seats available for the 2nd workshop, so if you are in the central NJ area consider killing an hour joining us).  Over the next few weeks I'll be posting a few of the drinks I have been experimenting with. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, some of the smoothies in contention make use of ingredients I would never have thought to toss in a drink until I started a little research.  Such as basil.

Kale?   Basil I could understand ... it pairs nicely with fruit and holds its own in a drink.  

But kale??

In a smoothie???

Why yes, Dear Reader.  Kale.

That garlic clinging to the roll?  Mad delicious!
You drooling yet?  I just love the exploding flavors of fresh lemon and garlic in every bite.  The parsley, of course, helps to hide your garlic breath afterwards.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Check out the recipe (NOW ... with photos!) here.

I've been experimenting with fancy-schmancy grilled cheese recipes lately, for a couple of panini programs I'll be giving at the Old Bridge Library in July.  I'm testing a lot of recipes. Lots and lots of testing.  Some more than once (in the interest of science, of course). This is one I have tested many many times ...

You are gonna loooove what I am about to share with you today!   It's for s'mores!   And not just your ordinary 3 ingredient s'mores you enjoyed as a scout 'round the campfire (4 if you count the stick holding the charred marshmallows).  No, Dear Reader, this is for S'mores Fudge Pie ...

TBT: Blueberry-Almond Torte

My Throwback Thursday recipe contribution.  I originally made this torte last June.  Took pretty pictures.  Then proceeded to forget all about it.  Until today, virtually a year later.
