Kale & Collard Greens. The HAPPY Couple

I WILL NOT apologize for my recent obsession with Kale & Collard Greens. I WON’T. LOL. Cooked I WILL NOT eat one without the other. I just can’t. It would be like separating a couple that we all know belongs together. NOW when it comes to having a salad I will eat Kale along with other leafy greens that I love. As I have been doing lately. I also became obsessed with BEETS but we will talk about that in another post.

The Happy Couple..Kale & Collard Greens

Look how BEAUTIFUL they are together. I feel like a proud parent at a wedding reception. I sautéed onions, added kale, kosher salt and then I added collards. They simmer down and then I add an organic Vegetable Stock. Depending on how much I am cooking and how may I keep alternating between Kale & Collards and Vegetable Stock.. I do not drown them in stock but add enough to barely cover the greens. Then I SLOW GROOVE them. Slow Grooving is when you let this simmer for an hour or more on a low flame

Can I do You A Favor?

Over the years I have been to many,many events. I create custom cakes and a lot of times I get invited to the festive occasion. Most times I go home with THIS type of giveaway. My initial reaction is excitement. I would go home and put it in a box or bag and push in the closet out of sight.

So after collecting these over the years I found myself doing a HUGE cleaning and came across a box filled with all sorts of favors from many, many parties. Sitting in the middle of the floor with a box filled with favors caused me to think. I looked at each favor and most of them served no real purpose (no offense to those who make and sell these). I had to make a decision of tossing all these favors. I felt bad for a moment but holding onto these did not make any sense.

This was years ago and since then I have collected 100’s of cookie cutters. I have learned to look at cutters and see that it can be have multiple uses.

Gone are the days of giving out those plastic party favors that most people have no use for and end up tossing them in the trash. Think about something more trendy. What’s trending NOW are edible favors. Everything from Candy to COOKIES.

Edible party favor benefits:

Makes your event more memorable

Most times the favor doesn’t make it to the recipient’s  home

It doesn’t get tossed

Edible Gifts Make Incredible Gifts.

Cherry Tomatoes, Cilantro, Red Onion & Jalapenos

When I saw the ingredient list I was like YESSSSSSS. All these combined together will make for an amazing tasting dish….When you watch the video you will get excited as well.

So I seasoned my shrimp with salt, pepper & cumin, I cooked my shrimp let them cool and combined all the ingredients and let it chill.

My cups came out OK. 1 looks great but the other 2 look like WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP..Don’t think I am NOT going to eat them because I am. Practice makes perfect.
