Questions for the Cook

Roasted Kale “Chips”

I made roasted kale last night for dinner and I could not believe how absolutely delicious it was. I had set my expectations low as I had tried a pre-packaged bag of roasted kale from my local food co-op “Just like potato chips!” the package boasted. Not so much. However, as a vegetable on your dinner plate? They may not be pretty, but they are crispy and tasty.

Another bonus is kale is so good for you – it is chock-full of vitamins and minerals – especially vitamins K and A, and of course it’s low in calories. Try this – I bet your kids will like them too – (kale) chips for dinner!

Roasted Kale “Chips”


1 bunch kale, destemmed, roughly chopped and thoroughly dried

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 garlic clove, crushed

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine chopped kale, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper on a rimmed cookie sheet. You don’t need to spread the kale in an even layer. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes. Let cool a minute or two before eating, as they continue to crisp up. Enjoy.

    On my cake receipes, the layers seem to be heavy and kind of sugary, the top of layer crust separate from the actual layer.
    How can I make my layers light and fluffy. When I cream my sugar, I gradually add portions to butter and this mixture is never fluffy. The sugar does not dissolve and make a creamy light mixture.

    I have a nice Kitchenaid mixture with settings 2,4 6 smf 8, zi believe. What am I doing incorrectly, please help!

    I have a question. Whenever I make Mac and cheese or chicken tetrazzini I double the sauce recipe to make sure it’s not dry. Somehow however it still tends to become dry. How do you make noodle dishes that won’t absorb all of the sauce? What’s the trick?
