Spicy Sausage Casserole
Hello from Spain. In order to use smoked sausage, I would have to drive to a Dutch spermarket (some distance off), so I used a mixture of the local sausages. The spiciness of the pepper flakes does somewhat overshadow all the other ingredients. It looked good, tasted fiery and there was more than tenough for the two of us. Would I cook it again...possibly ? However, less spicy, I would think.

Hi there. Austriaphiles.Just got back from Carinthia, and felt moved to give this recipe a try. Despite being a newbie at this cooking game, I even made my own peach (actually 'paraguyos') compote. The preparation is time consuming, so organise yourself well in advance. Flipping the pancake is not as easy as you think. Had to cut it into quarters and then flip them individually. Might also have put the gas on a bit high, so next time a minute less on 'side one'. For a first attempt, it tasted good, but looked a bit too 'bronzed' in places. If the restaurant in Klagenfut had dished up the same thing, I would have sent it back.....However.... overall pleased with myself. Regards from sunny Spain.

Easy Curried Cauliflower
With the Memsahib away in the UK visiting reatives for a month or so gave me the opportunity to 'test drive' some of the site's menus I had saved for what passes here in Spain for a 'rainy day'. This was a particularly good starting point. Within seconds the delicious aroma was permeating the kitchen, like real Indian food ...and the result was a delicious and healthy meal for myself; even took some next door to my Spanish neighbours who had (would you believe ?) never eating a curried dish before. They await my next experiment. Mouthwatering and simplicity to make, with the potential of applying it to other local vegetables. Thanks.
