Kale seems to be all the rage these days. I tried making the chips and found about what you did, they were terrible. My son and I bit into them, smiled at each other, YUM!, then started chewing and spit it out in the trash can. YUK!
The only way I've ever liked kale is in a slow cooker beef stew. When small bits of it cook for 10 hours in beef juice it doesn't taste so bad.

Suzanne, try the Crispy Kale Chips recipe in the recipe center. Both my husband and I enjoyed these chips.

Baby Kales are almost tasteless in salads, I include them with Baby Spinach, it is very good. Also, if you ever juice,(some don't recommend juicing a lot) Kale is a very good way to get those healthy greens in there, with little taste alteration. I was a big green vegetable hater growing up, and must admit that it takes determination to add new greens to my diet. A lot of people like Kale chips, I do not. I think it is better raw or wilted. It is also really good in turkey soup.

I cook kale all the time and have never noticed a bad smell! But I think the onions might have something to do with that. I love onions cooked with zucchini, mushrooms, green beans, any kind of beans, carrots, fennel bulb, and probably more I can't think of now. But I would never cook onions with broccoli or either kale or collards. Makes them taste yukky - that's a foodie technical term:) - and would smell bad. But kale simmered with only garlic and sea salt, then add eden foods canned cannellini beans until heated through, and dress with olive oil after cooling a few minutes (to preserve the olive oil flavor) - my family thinks THAT is wonderful! As a side dish or a pasta topping. But, beets? My HH says cooking beets smells like DIRT! lol

I first tried kale when in college about 35 years ago. It was featured in "Portuguese Kale Soup", which also featured chouriço (chorizo)-- very tasty-- at a local restaurant: A nice discovery.
These days I notice Whole Foods Market using a lot of kale in its Prepared Foods dept.: A slaw and some other salads.
And small heads of kale - especially if purple - still on their stems can look pretty in large floral arrangements!
