Choosing foods by color

174045748X_apples for jamI am deeply motivated by color. I remember as a child reorganizing the crayons in my box in the color order I thought best: yellow, orange, red, green, blue, purple, brown and black.  That deeply made sense to me.  Still does!  I know, I’m obsessed.

I have a very cool cookbook called Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros.  I had it a few years before I ever cooked from it.  I looked at it and loved it though.  It’s a beautiful book and has brought me much happiness on the visuals alone.

Besides having great photographs it has great recipes!  I made a delicious Hungarian ghoulash and some orange tomato chicken.

What stands out about this book is that it is organized by color.  There is actually a table of contents with red, green, orange, etc.  Because it was fall I turned to the orange chapter.  And there they were, perfect fall recipes!
