Salted Caramel Corn & Apple Cookies

Salted Caramel Corn & Apple Cookies

Let’s hop right into it! These cookies are major! They’re the sweet/salty cookie lovechild of apple pie and caramel corn with a bit of caramel apple inspiration! The salted caramel corn gives them a slight crunchy/chewy texture and the cinnamon-laced apples leave the cookies soft and moist. They’re a fun combination of textures with the whimsy and nostalgia of county fairs, the circus and the holidays all wrapped up together!

Indian-spiced Kettle Corn with Coconut Flakes (and a reminder)

Indian-spiced kettle corn with coconut flakes

every now and then you get a reminder.  a reminder that’s strong.  a reminder that makes you pause…and forget the everydayness of too much laundry, too little time, and too few minutes spent at the breakfast table sitting mesmerized by your son’s inability to care that his “brother” (a.k.a. pet cat) just stuck its tail in his nearly overflowing cereal bowl (when the generic brand of cinnamon toast crunch cereal is on sale, it’s christmas in our household–there just isn’t enough milk in the world…fill that bowl to the brim!).

i digress.

Kale Dust

Kale dust on popcorn

Kale is controversial in my household…I could eat it for days (and do)  but my husband and son can’t stand it, which is a real bummer, maaaan.  [channeling the Dude]  It’s packed with incredible nutrition, is absolutely beautiful to look at, and is so versatile:  salad, slaw, soup, chips, juice, pesto…and now dust.  Whaaa??  Usually I try to keep my house dust-free, but this is one kind of dust you’ll want to keep around!  It’s quick, easy, and adds a healthy punch to whatever you sprinkle it on.  Hello popcorn! Or stir it into yogurt and cream cheese for a veggie dip, top off your garlic bread or pasta, add a spoonful to potato soup, or sprinkle it onto a cheese quesadilla.

Kale it, don’t kill it!  Hmmm, a new vegetarian slogan?  Oh, I kale me!  {…just stop}
