Baked Sweet Potato Sticks
The simplicity of this recipe implies that it would be good for a beginner, however the directions do not state to flip/turn the fries at any point. My budding learner followed the directions to the "T" and was disappointed they were black on the bottoms. She received an "A" for effort on her assignment despite the poor recipe results.

No Bake Cookies I
This is a good recipe, we enjoyed them and were able to successfully substitute original almond milk for the milk and Original Earth Balance (vegan) buttery spread plus a pinch of salt for the butter due to allergies. We had tried another version of this recipe which called for slightly less sugar and cocoa, but it just tasted "ok". This recipe is GOOD. If we're eating a cookie, we aren't too worried about the sugar content since it is an occasional treat. :)

Garlic Kale
This is my first encounter with cooking kale. I had some in our fridge and had tasted a leaf raw and it was very peppery. A few days later I tried it again (same area on the leaf) and it had mellowed out to being a strong broccoli-stalk like flavor. (I have read before that many lettuces turn bitter after/during the hottest part of the summer and they mellow if kept in the fridge 2-3 days before consuming). I was drawn to this recipe because we love garlic and I thought it might help us to acquire a taste for including kale in our diet. I cooked it exactly as specified in the recipe. My husband loved it, the kids and myself forced ourselves to eat it. IMO, it wasn't horrible, just very strong and not something I could eat on its own as a side dish. I had made fried potatoes with bite-size meat, so stirring about 2 T. of this kale into the mix made it easier for me to tolerate. The only reason I'll make it again is because we have a tortoise who eats kale, but doesn't eat as much as what comes in the bundle. I can't bring myself to toss out the 'extra' so we'lll keep trying. It's healthy at least!
