Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt - I can’t think of a better New Year’s Eve snack than this Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt.

Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt -

The rich golden colour adds that celebratory feel and the taste is just phenomenal. I adapted the recipe from the Spicy Salted Caramel Popcorn recipe I posted earlier this year from Sam Linsell’s book called Sweet. Even though I am not the biggest fan of the salted caramel craze (I find most combinations overdone with saltiness, thereby spoiling the caramel flavour), salt always adds a layer of depth to sweetness and there is an added layer of richness by adding some coffee to the mix. I have kept the coffee salt to a minimum in the recipe (it adds to the flavour rather than being a distinct flavour of its own) but suggest you double the salt & coffee mix and serve some of it on the side to satisfy the salt and coffee lovers. Caramel is one of those things that needs to have your full focus when making. Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt Ingredients Instructions My best wishes to all for 2016.

Chickpea Tortilla Nachos - My New RootsMy New Roots

I distinctly remember the moment we realized this, on our honeymoon, deep in a Whole Foods vortex deciding which chips to buy for our three-week road trip across California. We were undoubtedly surprised and perhaps a little dismayed that we had committed our lives to each other without discussing this one rather important preference, but in the spirit of everlasting love and compromise, we pretended like it was no big deal.

We bought two bags of chips and ate them separately. We remain happily married to this day. I guess growing up in North America has had a real influence on me (shocking, I know). This idea to make tortilla chips from chickpea flour literally came out of nowhere. Zucchini & Tomato Salsa with Tortilla Chips. Hi friends!

Totally Addictive Kale Crisps

I made it back to Canada in one piece and the first thing I did when I got here? I made kale crisps. There’s just something about the confines of a plane and watching my fellow passengers chow down on mystery meat that makes me want to run for the nearest bunch of leafy greens as fast as possible. Call me crazy. Although they may appear a little freaky (you try making baked kale look appetizing), I guarantee that these crisps are every bit as addictive as potato chips! Fine. And besides being SOOOOO healthy, kale actually does taste good when you know how to prepare it.
