Kale and Corn Fritters

Kale & Corn Fritters I really enjoy eating dark leafy greens. I love the texture, the taste and their versatility. My 16 month daughter (I will call her Potpot here from now on), does not share my passion…yet. I see her carefully pick off shreds of wilted kale from other, more desirable, foods on her […]
