How to Make Kale Chips + My Seasonal Addiction to Potato Chips
I know I'm a little late to the kale chips bandwagon, but let me assure you, it's with earnest appreciation, not hipster abandon.  I've eaten kale for years, usually sauteed in grass-fed  butter and paired with over-easy pastured eggs for a savory breakfast...
Learn how to make your own delicious and healthy kale chips with a few savory ingredients. Also, read on to feel good about yourself as I confess my recent potato chip addiction.

What books have kept you up lately, plussers? 

I'm currently devouring A Feast For Crows (the 4th book in A Song of Ice and Fire series...the books the Game of Thrones show is based upon) and I can't get enough!

Seriously immerse writing with ah-mazing characters. Don't worry...I won't spoil anything for you. Just get to reading!

Wow this thread is still going:-) Nice to see that allot of the books mentioned are some that I have already read. Except for Mediations and The Brothers Karamazov. The closest I came to the latter was by watching a Japanese drama called, Karamazov no Kyodai, which was basically a retelling of the story.
And, Ocean At The End Of The Lane, was good but creepy and weird at times.
Oh, and I'll also have to check out the short story collection that you mentioned:-) +Elaina Newton Although I'm not much of a short story person.

{new post} My friend is leaving in less than 2 weeks to hike the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and my sister will be making dehydrated foods to send to her. SO, I decided to create a round-up of dehydrator recipes as a resource. 

Even if you don't own a dehydrator, several of these recipes should still work with an oven set on the lowest temperature (hopefully 170 degrees or less). 

What's your favorite food to dehydrate, plussers?
