Kale chip recipe:
My kids love to pick out pastas when we are at the store. One of their favorites is orecchiette, Italian meaning ears, or spaceships, or planets, so they say.
When kids get involved in the dinner process, they are more likely to eat the meal, even if it is full of healthy vegetables!
