My family truly does have unprecedentedly weird food habits. This evening, I got home from work, opened the fridge to scope out dinner prospects, and was immediately confronted with a giant bag o’ kale. Like, giant. The baking sheet shown above is not even a quarter of the size of this bag. In case you’re unfamiliar, kale is a bitter leafy green that is supposedly extremely good for you, which explains its presence in the Heyison family fridge. The weird part is that as far as I am aware, no one in my family actually eats it.

Also: note the parchment paper covering the baking sheet). When the edges turn brown but the center is still green, your kale chips are done! They should look like this:
