"Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education."
-Mark Twain, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love cauliflower. It goes so well with so many seasonings. This is a quick and easy side dish that is delicious with spicier recipes like my Ginger Cilantro Flank Steak.

Even though it's white and we generally think of the green leafy vegetables as being high in Vitamin K, cauliflower is a bit higher so you might want to avoid it if you are on Coumadin.

Curry Powder

In America, this means the yellow powder you buy in the store, but there are almost infinite variations of curry powder. In the Far East, curry powders vary by individual cook, region, country, and even the class of who is being served. Most curries are spicier than the yellow curry that Americans may be used to.

Originally curry powders were shipped back to Europe when the East India Company controlled much of the spice traffic. At first, these varied greatly in their tastes, color and spiciness. At the Universal Paris Exhibition of 1889, a standardized curry powder was agreed upon and most recipes are subtle variations of that formula.

It is the turmeric that gives curry and other ingredients, including onion, pepper, ground cumin, ground coriander, tamarind, chili powder, fenugreek and mustard powder its yellow color.
