Chicken Korma

I was given this recipe by a really good friend of mine.  I love getting handwritten  recipes from people.  It feels so authentic and personal to me.  These are recipes that people share with their loved ones.  And then they took the time to sit down and write it.  I adore handwriting.  Mine is not the best, but if I write very slowly I can produce something I am proud to share.  Also, since people so rarely give handwritten recipes anymore, it feel extra special to me!

#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

Roasted Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

I love soup!!!  And I have never made anything with real pumpkin.  Therefore, last time I went to the farmer’s market I decided to buy one.  For some reason I was really nervous about cooking with a real pumpkin, but it was so easy!  Just like squash, except bigger.  I don’t know what else I am going to make with pumpkin.  But, I definitely am going to use it more this fall!

Roasted Vegetables with Cocoa Spice Rub

This was really good!  My friend Kelzee made it.  Nobody could guess the secret ingredient, cocoa powder.  I could not taste the cocoa powder, but the whole combinations of spices tasted really good.  I totally recommend trying this.  I am going to make this when I get a chance.  The vegetables she used was just what she had on hand.  I really liked the variety.

Potato Samosas

OMG these were delicious and I accidentally insulted Arbor (he made them).  So at first he said it was a curry and told me the ingredients and it sounded fine, but nothing fantastic.  Then he told me he was going to fry them!  Everything is better once you fry it.  And my mistake was telling him I thought this.
