I love the taste of sweet and savory mixed together in one dish. It all started with fries dipped in milkshakes (try it before you judge) and as my palate has grown up a bit, I've learned to appreciate the duo in more substantial plates. On another Barefoot Contessa marathon, I decided to test out one of the soup recipes to complement a rather chilly day. For the recipe I swapped out the McIntoshes for Galas, added a few sprigs of rosemary, left out the condiments (although I would make it next time with the coconut and cashews only), and let's be serious...traded the homemade chicken stock for the store bought carton. The entire meal was so low maintenance and the warm bowl of curry spiced sweet squash and apple soup came pretty close to topping my salty sweet milkshake treat.
