Kale chips ( or crunchy bat’s wings for Halloween).

kale chips

I know, kale chips are a thing at least since 2012, there is no vegan/ healthy/ fitness blog without this recipe on.

Kale is not a common cabbage at home, my mum did these chips for the first time some weeks ago and we all loved them.

I, so, arrive late, really late but I think they could be a great ” scary” alternative for you Halloween party as they pretty remember of bat’s wings.

We all know on 31th October every adult and every child eats a bunch of sweet and savoury junkies, giving a different treats could be a nice idea for the most food upstanding people, intolerants, vegetarians or vegans.

Recipes & ideas for your Halloween party.

Halloween is knocking on the door once again, time is near, are you ready?

This is one of my favourite feasts, through the years I’ve posted a lot of “scary recipes“: maybe you remember some, using the search button you could find them but thinking to the lazy ones (as I am the laziest one) I’ ve decided to make a brand new post with them plus some nice ideas for your party I’ve found surfing Pinterest.

In Italy this festivity, I mean the way people in the U.S.A. celebrate it, is quite new: only in the last ten years we started finding decorations, costumes in the shops and in the last years restaurants, discos and pubs started themed nights.

Of course people at home started to throw themed parties too and I’m the queen of the Halloween themed food because I LOVE HALLOWEEN.

Few weeks ago my father in law came at us to go with my husband at the stadium to see a football match, Bologna- Inter F.C.

We had a quick dinner with piadina bread and cold cuts plus a good cold beer as they had to run off the stadium: it’s not far from where we live but of course you have to find a parking lot then walk, then pass the check points…

They were on a rush to be there in time.

I was very happy to have a whole evening just for me, Lorenzo just started school after the summer break and was exhausted and soon ready for bed so I had totally free time to do something in the kitchen.

It’s something that donesn’t happen often.

I’m here with a new recipe, it’s a classic of mine but I didn’t take picture of it ’till today: I had to do it on a rush for a forest themed food contest from an Italian blog runned by a lovely girl called Betulla ( Birch in English).

Unluckly everything about the contest is in Italian so I just translate this recipe for you, a chestnut cream‘s crème brûlée which is a perfect close even for a festive lunch/ dinner.
