Crispy Kale with Olive Oil and Sea Salt


First you start with an entire bunch of kale and only a tablespoon of olive oil. As for the salt, you can use garlic salt or a little sea salt.

You could also choose to adorn your Kale with:

  • red chile flakes
  • sesame seeds
  • shaving of parmesan
  • ground black pepper
  • garlic salt

Crispy Kale with Olive Oil and Sea Salt
from Jacques Pepin’s TV Show “More Fast Food My Way”.

Serves 3-4 as a snack or side dish.

1 bunch kale
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt or garlic salt to taste

pre-heat oven to 250F.

Wash and pull kale leaves off their stems. Wash leaves and spin dry or blot with towel as much a possible–any moisture will keep kale from getting crispy.

Then toss the Kale with olive oil and salt (sea or garlic). The kale will shrink when it cooks; go a little easy on the salt.

Now spread the Kale into one layer, some overlap is okay) on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet (with sides to hold cooling rack in place)

Bake for 20 minutes or until crispy. Some pieces on the edges may get crispy before those in the middle–just pull them off the sheets and put the pan back in the oven for a few minutes to finish.

Serve immediately.

Stored kale will lose its crispy texture.


In Honor of Earth Day 2009

Brian and I invite you all to join us in maintaining our beautiful earth God has given us! 

We are going to go around our street and the surrounding streets with cloth, reusable gloves and clean up garbage to keep the earth beautiful for this generation and future generations to come!

Please, if you can, spend this week cleaning up, meditate on what you can do to be more eco-friendly, and hopefully it will have an impact on you so that every time you take a walk or every time you see a piece of trash you will take the 1.85 seconds it takes to pick up a piece of trash and…



Blue Earth – World’s First Solar-Powered Touch Screen Cell Phone

For most of us, cell phones have become a way of life. More and more people are dropping their home lines altogether and going purely with cell phones, but the massive amounts of cell phones floating around raises some serious environmental problems. Samsung is looking to change things up a bit with its newest cell phone concept, the solar powered “Blue Earth”.

Samsung started displaying its touch screen Blue Earth phone earlier this week at a trade show in Barcelona, Spain, and it is capturing the attention of cell phone lovers and environmentalists alike. According to the company, the phone will be able to generate enough power on its own to make a call anytime, so you will never have to worry about running frantically around looking for a place to get a quick charge.

While Samsung’s Blue Earth is the first solar powered cell phone to hit the market, the eco-friendly attributes do not stop there.

For many environmentalists, two of the worst words in our vocabulary are “water bottles“. It is amazing the damage that discarded water bottles are having on our environment and our landfills, and this environmental concern has not gone unnoticed by Samsung. Blue Earth phones will be manufactured using recycled water bottles to make the phone’s outer casing. In addition to using recycled water bottles, the phones will also be shipped to you in recycled packages.

While many of us can’t get enough of our cell phones, we spend little time thinking about all the harmful substances that companies are using to manufacture these phones. With the Blue Earth, Samsung is looking to change that, and these phones will be manufactured without Brominated Flame Retardant, Beryllium and Phthalate.

Blue EarthThe Blue Earth also offers users an “Eco Mode,” allowing a more energy-efficient way to control display brightness, backlight duration, and bluetooth options.

Also built into this new phone will be “Eco Walk” which will use a pedometer to count how many steps you take when you talk, and show you how many trees you have saved by walking instead of driving to your destination.

While the Blue Earth phone has solar panels covering the back of the case, it still needs 14 hours of sunlight to get a full charge, so practically speaking, you will probably still need to plug this phone into a charger now and then. Realizing this, Samsung has even made this a more eco-friendly experience than typical, by giving the Blue Earth phone a 5 star energy efficient charger that operates on less than 0.03 watts.

All in all, this phone offers a lot, and other major cell phone manufacturers are sure to follow the lead that has been set by Samsung. Blue Earth phones are not currently available on the market but you can expect to see some hitting stores later this year.

You can visit Samsung’s website to see a video they have posted discussing the Blue Earth and its eco-impact. In addition, Chinese mobile manufacturer ZTE plans to sell its Coral-200, a solar powered phone for $40.

peta_logoIngrid Newkirk’s Will is posted on the PETA website and it is quite the laundry list of things she wishes to be done to her body when she passes on. 

Some examples include: 

  • The meat of her body for a ‘human barbecue’ (symbolizing pig roast, hamburgers etc)
  • Her skin made into leather products (like purses or shoes)
  • Her feet cut off and made into elephant-foot style umbrella holders (like in her tavels to other countries)
  • Pointer finger sent to Ringling Bros circus to stand as the “Greatest Accusation on Earth”  (due to kidnapping and abuse of animals)
  • Her liver shipped to France (to protest foie gras)
  • Her ears sent to the Canadian Parliament so they will ‘hear’ the screams of the seals, bears, raccoons, foxes, and minks bludgeoned, trapped, and sometimes skinned alive for their pelts, the other to Mumbai for them to ‘hear’ the cattle who are slaughter
  • etc!

I certainly wish I had that much passion for something that I want to make a bold (somewhat super-crazy) statement like that when I go! Maybe someday I will (no pun intended) PETA I.N’s Will
