Sweet and Savory Kale
My husband and daughter (and me) actually had seconds of this dish. I made it almost exactly as written - only change I made was to add only about a cup of chicken broth. I'm actually glad of that because the only reason I didn't give the recipe 5 stars was that it was still a little soupy. But the taste was great and it made kale (a veggie I consider NOT likeable) actually good!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops
I absolutely loved this recipe. Like most people though, I tweaked it quite a bit, but I never would have thought of it without seeing this recipe first. The chops and "gravy" came out so tasty you'd think you were eating in a fine restaurant. The chops were tender and could be cut with a fork! I used center cut pork chops and browned them in my enamel cast iron dutch oven with a little peanut oil. once they were almost done browning, I threw in a chopped up scallion and sauteed that for a minute. Salted and peppered well at this point. De-glazed the pan with sherry wine, threw on a can of condensed potato soup, and into the oven at 250 for 1 hr 45 min. Took it out of oven and removed the chops. Added about 4oz chicken broth to the pan to make the gravy less thick. Next time I'll add some sliced mushrooms. I now also want to try this same technique with chicken, using marsala with cream of mushroom soup. I think it will make an awesome and easy chicken marsala.

Very Chocolate Cookies
These are the best cookies I've ever made. I did everything almost exactly as the recipe called for, except I added 2 teaspoons of instant coffee powder along with the dry ingredients. I made them smaller than the recipe called for - made 3 doz, so they were smaller than the original recipe. Baked them for exactly 10 minutes, and they came out amazing. A delicate crisp on the outside, and a soft chewy inside. They remind me of the double chocolate cookies at Panera's.
