Simple cooking from Amy Chaplin’s At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen

Below are a few dishes I’ve made recently out of Amy Chaplin’s At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen. I was making the curry powder shown below while Winter Storm Juno raged outside, so I’ve included a photo of the snowy view outside my kitchen window as well. I’m especially in love with this curry, in part because I finally bought a spice grinder and have so much fun grinding spices now. I can say goodbye to the days spent grinding away with my mortar and pestle!
