I made this again this week and thought I'd share. This dip is one of those things that people either love or hate.... Personally, I have to make it in extremely small batches, otherwise I totally inhale it. Very bad for me. :)

I made these this weekend and enjoyed both very much. A nice light twist on pea soup and a sweet gingery dessert.

So, the 3 or 4 times I've tried to make sausage gravy .. I've ruined it.. not so bad that it couldn't be eaten.. but.. I tend to put too much flour in, and it comes out really.. pasty

but we eat it anyways.

Do you have a good recipe for good sausage gravy? Any tips on how to make it.. um, not so thick??

Thanks guys!

Mom's trying a new recipe for cawliflower soup from the newspaper that calls for 3/4 teaspoon of curry powder. She thought she had curry powder in her spice cabinet.

We don't have curry powder.

Is there a more conventional substitution that we could use? We have pretty much anything else that a person could want, spice-wise. Mom's considering using a few pinches of red hot pepper flakes. She's never had anything with curry before, as far as she knows, and while I like curry dishes, it's been ages since I've had any and can't quite remember what it might taste similar to.

Any suggestions?

Who is staying in due to the snow, and cooking?

Dinner tonight Chicken Alfredo Tortellini with a tossed green salad and mudslides to drink. Later tonight, after the mudslides kick in, we will be doing some improv cookie baking.
