Curried Chicken with Apples

Guess what I made??!!

Neon curried chicken!  

Jokes.  It wasn't neon.  It just looks neon in the picture.  Why?  Because that's just the kind of gal I am.  A gal that over edits and turns her curry photos neon.  

So so so.  I recently got the cookbook, Dinner:  A Love Story and I must say, I am in love.  The meals are approachable, simple, cheap (so far); all while being a step up for what is considered regular old supper.  

Looking forward to eating my way through this book!

Tell me, do you have it?  Have you cooked from it?  What did you love?  If you could be anyone for one day, who would you be?

    i liked them all! such a great book! really gave me some great ideas. and i appreciate how she's always throwing around the fact that she's drinking a glass of wine or cocktail while cooking.

    approachable is a great description of her recipes.
