Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

So the other day I decided to be adventurous.  While I was at the supermarket buying the ingredients for my latest bakery delights, I bought some kale.  Really, I had no idea what the heck I was buying.  I saw someone post it on a blog and mention something about kale chips.

Well, veggies are healthy and I like veggies because I am one of those crazy people that like the taste of them, so why not try a new veggie.  I took home this beautifully green bunch of kale.  I washed it and just took a bite of it raw to see what it would taste like.

It tasted a little bit like cabbage.  I am also one of those crazy people that like raw veggies.  Sometimes I think the taste better when they are raw. 

Next step was to try kale chips.  So the blogger said to brush the kale with oil and sprinkle some salt.  Put in a 350 degree oven until crispy, but not burnt.  So I went ahead and did it. They came out like this:

Then it was time for a taste.  Crispy, salty goodness.  Good flavor overall.  I ate all but one.  I offered it to my 5yr old daughter to try.  She is usually open to trying new foods.  She ate it and agreed that it tasted good.  Guess we have a new veggie in the house.
