So I accidentally tipped WAY TOO MUCH rosemary into the first stage of a recipe that called for thyme, and the result was amazing.

1 large or 1.5 med onions, diced (about 2 cups)
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 28-oz can chunky tomato sauce
3 Tbsp molasses
~1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped small
~6 oz canned pumpkin
~1/2 package Quorn grounds
1 bottle porter beer (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder

1. Saute the onions in olive oil until translucent. (Optional; I prefer my onions cooked more than they get in a crock pot.)
2. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on high 3-4 hours or until done. (Spice quantities are estimates; adjust to taste.) (I assume you could do it longer on low.)

Serve with pumpkin spoon bread. (This is why there's a remnant of canned pumpkin in the chili, you see.) Bake the spoon bread toward the last hour of cooking, and it'll be nice and hot in your bowl.

This is the curry I made last night (my first attempt at curry and it turned out SO delicious - w00t!) modified from this recipe my dear Katie linked me to. I think I prefer my version. If you have accessibility issues, this is a good recipe to get help with on the prep. My carer did all the peeling and chopping and thus made it possible for me to make this recipe at all.

Accessibility Notes: This is a spoon-eating recipe. You will need to peel and dice potatoes, slice capsicum in small strips, peel and cut ginger into tiny cubes, cut up chicken if yours doesn't come from the store in handy bite-sized strips like mine did, open a tin, stir a full large skillet without slopping over, cook rice, and measure peanut butter out without screaming in frustration (I screamed).

Equipment Needed: A huge deep skillet pan thing or medium huge pot with lid. A wooden spoon for stirring. A ladle for serving. A knife and cutting block and a veg peeler (if you use one) for prep. A tablespoon measurement. A helper is awesome here for the prep.

This is a very nice soup for autumn, with its vibrant orange colour, and if you dial the ginger up like I did in the options below, you have a perfect meal for someone with a horrible, nasty cold who needs all the natural lurgy-fighting essences she can get. With the ginger at the normal level, in my experience, it's also a soup for kids.

Accessibility Notes: You will need to be able to chop veg, stir in a pot, and blend either with an immersion blender or by transferring to a blender and back to the pot.

Every year we go to an Apple Cider Pressing party and being a potluck everyone brings a dish.  Last year I brought this cobbler.  A couple of days ago I got an email from our hostess requesting that I bring it again this year. :D

It's getting cooler out, and I love a nice curry in fall. A friend shared a link to a recipe for homemade curry roux, and we tried the basic recipe once. It was fine, but I thought about the various other flavors of curry I've gotten in the boxes at the Japanese grocery store, and I decided to try something a little different.

3 Tbsp butter
1/4 c flour
1.5 Tbsp garam masala
0.5 Tbsp hot curry powder (or to taste)
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp pureed ginger
1 Tbsp molasses
1 Tbsp tonkatsu sauce

1. Melt the butter over medium low heat.
2. Mix the flour, garam masala, and cinnamon in and stir until they form a thick paste.
3. Stir in the ginger, molasses, and tonkatsu sauce, and cook until it starts to crumble. (This takes 5-10 minutes, so don't fret.) Set aside.
4. Add roux to curry as directed in the original recipe.

Oh, and here's the vegetables & stuff I put in the curry (in order): onions, mushrooms, Quorn tenders, sweet potatoes, kabocha squash. The wonderful part of a curry is that you can use whatever vegetables you like best and/or are in season.
