We're cookin' at AiFactory!

This week, Mia gave us some recipe cards to play with and YUM! I love to cook, and new recipes are always so fun to try! Check out what I made this week.

I kept it pretty simple: a 5x7 card base with some slots punched in the front so I can see what recipe I'm using. Inside, a scalloped border forms a pocket to hold some extra recipe cards to share or to collect recipes from someone else.

And since the print is really hard to see, here's the recipe from Cooking Light, 2003:


  • 4  ounces  Cajun smoked sausage, chopped (such as Conecuh)
  • 3  cups  fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1  (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 6  cups  coarsely chopped kale (about 8 ounces)
  • 1  (16-ounce) can navy beans, drained and rinsed


Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add smoked sausage to pan; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and diced tomatoes; bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the kale. Reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until the kale is tender. Stir in beans, and cook 1 minute or until soup is thoroughly heated.

I prefer collard greens to kale, so I substitute when I make this soup. Salad and some crusty break make this a great warm up!

Check out what the rest of the team has done, too!
