Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce For Basting and Dipping

These Rhubarb cookies got great reviews from everyone that tried them. They are a little soft, so make sure that they brown a little bit before taking them out!

Kale Brownies = very good. I had to add a little water to the blender so it would chop up the Kale so my brownies were more fudgy in the middle. I think I might try it in the food processor next time or just leave the brownies in the pan to cool – that probably would have cooked them just enough. But definitely cook a bit longer than recommended for a more traditional brownie texture!

Recipe: Garfield’s Kale Salad


Kale Salad

Garfield’s Kale Salad

Darling daughter #2 brought home this yummy recipe after her first year at Pacific Lutheran University. She discovered it at a cafe near campus. It has been a family favorite ever since. Another big bonus for me is that the Farmer will actually consider this a meal. Usually the salad is his appetizer. Enjoy!


  • 2-4 slices of cooked bacon crumbled
  • 1/4-1/2 cup feta cheese (Add as much or as little as you like!)
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1-2 cups roasted cauliflower — We just cook it for a bit in the pan with the bacon grease.
  • 1 bunch kale — strip off the rib, then tear leaves into bite size pieces. Then roll between your hands. This is called massaging the kale. It makes it tender. Don’t skip this step!Optional:
  • 1-2 cups chopped chicken breast —You can use leftovers or saute it in the bacon grease with a bit of garlic.
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds/other nuts
  • Dressing (suggestions: Italian, Balsamic vinegar and olive oil, Caesar dressing)
    Mix all ingredients together and then toss with your favorite dressing. Serve at room temp or chilled.

    Note: Measurements are very loose since we use leftover and adjust depending whether it is a side or main dish.
