I love nuts and fruits in salads, especially if they are warm like these pears and lightly caramelized pecans. The kale is simply prepped with the usual oil massage to make it tender. I used baby kale because it is easier, but curly kale would give more of a visual pop.

Swedish Singer Jennie Abrahamson has a new album out titled ‘Gemini Gemini’. It’s a little bit ballad, part electronic, and sometimes evocative of a meditational reflecting pool. “Saved” is my favorite, so far.

Check out Jennie Abrahamson on her Website where you can buy the music.

Cheers!
