Butter Chicken

Last night Erin and I had a girl-date with our friend, Lisa. We decided to be adventurous and cook butter chicken from scratch. It turned out fantastic! Erin was excited to break out her extensive stash of Indian spices, and I was pumped to use my new ginger grater for the first time. We followed a recipe from this book (also found here), which was surprisingly fast and easy (although Erin and Lisa would probably point out that my contribution consisted largely of reading people magazine and keeping up the conversation…). The food turned out delicious and the girl-date was a great success. We can’t wait to have Lisa over again!

Over the weekend, Suj wowed me with this beautiful roast chicken. He used a Bittman recipe, but added some fresh rosemary for extra flavor. The prep looked so easy and the chicken turned out incredibly juicy and well-seasoned. I am so impressed with Suj’s culinary skills. Nothing better than a man in the kitchen…
