I've seen it, but still not sure.
I tried their curry simmer sauce but DH was, "umm, not sure about this one, maybe we don't get this again".
Hmm, I don't know exactly what you're asking Kgirl. I can't stand Indian style curry, but I really like the Thai Green Curry simmer sauce. We think it's very tasty.

I was all puffed up with pride over my achievement, I placed a gorgeous bowl of dip `n chip in front of my 3 gals... "What is this? It tastes nasty."
I was heart broken!
My elder niece promptly went into the kitchen, got out a package of Lipton Onion Soup mix and said, "Auntie, this is how you do it".
kgirl, your story about making the onion dip from scratch and getting mediocre responses reminded me of years ago when I made a homemade German Chocolate Cake for my new husband's brother. I knew he loved GC Cake, and wanted to make an impression. He said it was "really good, almost as good as a boxed cake mix." I never made another one for him. LOL

This would annoy me greatly too! No more home made GC cake for you, BIL!

I'm a commercial photographer, and your problem is probably not focus blur, but motion blur, if you are using available kitchen light.

I did a super-simple food photo tutorial for another forum. If there is some interest, I could post it up on DC. My specialty is automotive photography, so my food styling talents are somewhat marginal. But, a lot of people did up their game using my tips.

My only hesitation is that, in the past, camera buffs tend to want to show off their photographic knowledge, and make things more difficult than they need to be for the cook who just wants to take a decent food picture with their iPhone. I'd prefer to help the cook with the iPhone than get into a discussion of cameras and advanced photoshop techniques that makes other forum member's heads spin.

Anyway, back on topic. It was good old Italian sausage and peppers tonight. So easy, and so good. Just some Italian sausage, sliced red and green bell peppers, and a sliced onion cooked in my jumbo skillet.

I didn't photograph tonight's dinner, but here is a picture of the exact same dish I made a while back.

Rock...I could just dive in to that dinner of yours, looks fantastic! Everyone's dinners looks and sound mouthwatering.

Taco salad for dinner here this afternoon - drained and rinsed black beans, chopped red bell, romaine, onion, crumbled tortilla chips, and topped with ranch dressing. Simple, but good.

Thanks, everybody...Caseydog, I'm not going to get too involved in photogarphy..I just want to get decent pics to post. Not going to spend any more money on cameras...the camera I have can take a great photo but when I get close it seems to get blurry..even with the close up setting...it has a food photo setting which takes even worse photos...
