Happy Birthday, Satch!

Leroy "Satchel" Paige was born on July 7, 1906 in Mobile, Alabama.  He started his baseball career in the Negro Baseball League.  In 1948, at the age of forty-two, he became the first African American pitcher in the major league.  Paige was such a phenomenal player that Joe DiMaggio described him as, "the best and fastest pitcher I've ever faced".  He played for Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals, and Kansas City Royals.  After retirement, he coached the Atlanta Braves.  Paige was inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame in 1971.  Today, he is considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

What's Cooking?: It's All About Kale!

Kale is so healthy and delicious, full of vitamins and antioxidants.  The word is out as its popularity continues to grow about its health benefits.  However, I resisted trying this luscious curly forest green vegetable with its coarse texture until my son convinced me of how great the kale salad he has been having for lunch.  As a result, I found there are many uses for kale with various techniques in preparation as in salads, in soups and stuffing, and kale chips.  The kale chips are a blast to make with their light, wispy-like quality.  Stir-fry kale with garlic is exquisitely delicious in its simplicity.  It is a great substitute for spinach in many recipes.  Its sturdy texture doesn’t fall apart as easily as spinach does.  I like it in my quiche for its chewier texture!
