Gosh I wouldn't have thought curry and almonds go together. And yet...there are many recipes with curry that add nuts...like almonds.

Ooh, these sound interesting. I bet you could make them with other flavors/spices too.

Scrumptious! I served your latte recipe at our Thanksgiving dinner and it was a huge hit. Thank you!
