Just in case you’re wondering if my kitchen is being put to good use, let me offer you a visual evidence.
See?! I do use my oven. Very often. To make me lots and lots of kale chips. And not just for me. The whole family loves these! We go through them like water.
Actually, some people here don’t drink water. So for him, he goes through these chips like soda. I guess the chips counter the health risks of the soda?? I can only hope.
So anyway, kale chips are so easy to make.
Wash, dry, then tear kale leaves into pieces, toss with just a smidgen of olive oil, then place on parchment-lined baking sheet, preferably without touching each other, sprinkle some salt or spices and bake in 300°F oven for 10 minutes, flip them, and bake for another 10 minutes. Done!
↑ RECIPE ↑
See, a one-sentence recipe. All recipes should be like this, don’t you think?!
In other news, my lilac is in bloom.
Whenever I see something like this in my garden, I say to myself… Life is pretty good.
Wish I could teleport the fragrance into your garden…

Hi Angie! I love your kale chips and your lilac! Such great pictures too! I must try your kale chips recipe, sounds really easy.
Thanks, Monika! They’re so easy and so good! Don’t even know why I used to buy kale chips. You can sprinkle them with spices, too, but we like them plain with a little bit of salt. So good!!
If I make them I’ll let you know how they turned out:)
Elaine @ foodbod says
The perfect kind of recipe: succinct and to the point! 🙂
Yes! I think we should have another challenge, write a one-sentence recipe ?
Elaine @ foodbod says
Ha ha! And just how long can that sentence be…? With how many commas and semi colons?? 😉
And how many “thens”?? ??
Please teleport both the chips and the fragrance of the Lilacs, Angie!! Both look beautiful!! Happy FF!
Thanks, Su! Okay, calling Scotty…beam me up, Scotty ! ?
The kale chips look so lovely! It’s a pity I can’t find kale around here…
Oh now that’s too bad, Lina ? But you probably can use similar leaves, like collard greens and mustard. Different flavors but I’m sure would be as good. Maybe we should experiment ?
Yup I’ll surely try it with some other leaves☺☺
Your lilacs are beautiful and I need to make kale chips for my family. We are a family of chip monsters, but the unhealthy kind lol. Thanks for the feature:)
Oh we like other kinds of chips, too, including the unhealthy kinds ? But when I found out everybody likes these kale chips, I’ve been cranking them out. That way they’ll forget abt the other chips ?
Angie, the lilac is so pretty! I haven’t tried making kale chips – they look yummy!? Thanks for the party Angie. I wish you a fab weekend! Happy FF!
You definitely should, Jhuls, and right away! You won’t regret it, I can assure you. They’re better than good ? Have a great weekend ?

I can almost smell those beautiful flowers. That is one of the best things about spring, and your kale chips are fresh and lite. I need to go on a kale diet and shed some winter girth LOL! Thank you for the feature this week! Always humbled by this community of talented people!
And the weeds and pollen, too, don’t forget those, lol. But yeah, this is the best time to be out in the garden. Kale chips and I are BFF, can’t imagine life without them ? Your tacos are superb! ??
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Happy Fiesta Friday Angie – and wow those kale crisps look so good – it’s such a skill getting them crispy rather than soggy!
No, it’s really easy, seriously. The key is to make sure you start with dry leaves (salad spinner and paper towels) and not too much oil, low temp oven. Give it a try! Happy FF, Laura! ?
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Great tip on the thorough drying Angie – I’ll try that next time!
Ann GrubbsnCritters says
The kale chips definitely an absolute winner! Easy to make, easy to eat! It’s a party! ?
You can say that again! That’s my motto…easy…like Sunday morning ?
We love kale chips too!! Thanks for featuring my Bhel Puri, Angie! I really appreciate it! Have a great week! 😀
Of course you do, you have well developed and trained palate, like a chef ? The bhel puri salad sounds delicious! ?
Zeba@Food For The Soul says
Kale and Lilacs!!!!…you got it going on Angie 🙂
Thanks, Zeba! Things are alright as long as there are kale chips and lilacs blooming ?
I’ve only had Kale chips once but pretty darn tasty! Yours look even more amazing – and that lilac – I can smell it from here! Now features! Wow! Beautiful as always. Look at that puffed rice salad – all those deep oranges and yellows keep catching my eye. Also, starting and and ending with dessert wasn’t fair! I’ve already been steadily working my way through some cookies and now I want both the margarita bars and the cinnamon and orange bread. Umm, the tacos look good too as do all 74(!!!!!!!!!!!) entries for this week.
Hope everyone is well? Can’t believe it’s almost May – in fact in an hour and a half it will be here in Ireland! Crazy!
You should try making your own kale chips, Maggie. Really is quite easy and so delicious. Not as delicious as potato chips, but hey, they’re much healthier ? I myself can’t believe it’s May already! Definitely crazy. Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas again, lol ?
Don’t say that! The C word should not be spoken before September!!! I will have to, thanks for sharing your recipe!
