I like to make this dish even in the winter with organic sliced peaches still in the freezer from when they were in season the summer before.

kale chips in a bowlSeveral friends have been raving to me lately about kale chips, a delicious new way to enjoy your leafy greens.  Now, I really don’t know if this is new or not in the grand scheme of things;  in fact, I suspect it is not new at all.  There are probably folks reading this post who have been making this recipe for some time!
