I start prowling around 9 p.m., like a leopard in search of prey; if I’m not mindful, I can run into dangerous opportunities. I try to have some great late-night snacks at the ready, especially on weekends, when I tell myself sensibility is a fool’s errand, that I deserve something delightful. And this is why I’d like to salute Fine Cooking, a national magazine based in Connecticut.
I salute them because they introduced me to a simple snack that makes me feel I’m getting away with delicious murder, Crispy Kale Chips with Toasted Lemon Zest. Know this: I’m a potato chip nut, and I don’t need them after trying a bowl of these little marvels. Instead, I luxuriate in my heart-healthy late-night indulgence. And then I think about making more.
