These savory curry-lime roasted peanuts are perfect for snacking on, but I have grand plans to use them as a soup garnish. Stay tuned.

Curried Kabocha squash soup

I made some little grilled cheese croutons for my soup, a little throwback from this great kale salad I made earlier in the fall. Not that the soup really needed anything else — this recipe had some amazing flavor. And how can you beat a nice, warm bowl of squash soup in the fall?

Ginger-curry burst tomatoes with chickpeas over quinoa

Lately, I’ve been sorting through stacks of old magazines that I’ve stockpiled in the three years since I moved into my Roanoke apartment. I’ve probably gone through 60 or so issues of food and home magazines, scouring for recipes to add to my to-make list. (My apologies to those who follow me on Pinterest for smothering your feeds with mouthwatering photos.) This simple tomato recipe was one of the ones I bookmarked. And I’m so happy I did! I added quinoa and served it up for dinner, and as I ate it, I made a mental note to add it to my regular rotation come next tomato season. Sometimes, being a pack rat has its perks.

Samosa hand pies

There’s something so cozy and sweet about hand pies. Another perk: Hand pies travel well. I made these when my dear friend Kristina came to visit, and we ended up taking them along on a picnic in nearby Floyd, Va.

Grilled tenderloin

The mustard-curry sauce formed a nice crispy crust on the grill, but the center of the meat stayed moist and tender. Next time, I might serve this dish with saffron rice and mint or mango chutney. And grilled peaches for dessert is a must.

Curried lentil salad

This lentil salad is packed with color, flavor and nutrients. What would I expect, though? This recipe came from my dietitian friend Samantha.

Curried potato salad with peas and cauliflower

This potato salad reminded me a bit of traditional potato and pea samosa filling. Bring it to your family picnic for a nice change of pace from the typical mayo-and-celery potato salad.

    This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn't tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe --- I was loading more sauce into my wrap as I ate. Attractive, yes?

This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn’t tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe. It would be great for lettuce wraps, chicken salads or slopping up with leftover tofu like a pig (guiltyyyy).

Chicken korma

Chicken korma is one of my favorite dishes to order at Indian restaurants. Its yogurt-and-almond-based sauce is like nothing else. And considering how simple this recipe was, it might become one of my new go-to chicken dishes to make at home.  The list of ingredients seems long, but you’ll already have most of them in your pantry. Beware, though, cardamom, the one ingredient I didn’t have, cost close to $10 for a jar.

I love curry, but I don't think I've ever had it paired with grapes. The sweet bite of the grapes and the cool mint gave this dish a springtime feel, which is just what I've needed during this crazy back-and-forth weather.
