One of my favorite things to do is get a nice “glow at Trader Sam’s and stumble over to downtown Disney and wolf down a bag of beignets-no powdered sugar. Makes me sneeze and I look like hell after a night at T S ’s and stuffing my face in a bag full of beignets. Yours look good Cammo.
Cheers

I think this is one of the most difficult things I've ever made.

The first try was a total disaster, it came out so freaking SCOVILLE 1,600,000 that my brain exploded, then imploded, then flipped upside down and landed backwards. I looked like an Olympics version of the Exorcist head crank scene.

The second version had no flavor. The third needed more of a smokey kick...

Anyway, many versions later, peering at the ingredients lists of many commercial bottles, and lots of exacting notes, taste tests - dividing the recipe into 1/4's and blind testing the variations, and here it is.

Hot sauce.



I like this cause you can make a small batch for a party, day of.

That's a BBQ'd Habanero at the bottom right.

I'm also letting the sauce sit for a few days and see if it all smooths out a bit, like an aged whiskey.

That's scary! Habaneros are the crack cocaine of the pepper family, I stay away from them!

Cammo, love the look of the hotsauce.

I created one that I call "Pele's Revenge" and it is made with Pineapple, Habeneros and a Scotch Bonnet....or two. Stuff is amazing, sweet on the tongue right away and then the fire sneaks up on you. The fun part of hot sauce making is you can really adjust the heat level and play with the flavors. Experimentation is fun, but make sure you have a good kitchen exhaust fan. It don't take much to "pepper gas" yourself and the family.

Yeah, the key I think is to get your base flavor perfect before adding the habaneros. I used a whole variety of sweet and smoky ingredients before blending in the hot stuff, 1/4 a habanero at a time. This stuff TASTES GOOD!

The first experiment was the funniest, though. It literally almost melted the melamine bowl I was making it in. There are burn marks now on the countertop. I think I invented a new way to get through tank shielding armor. I dumped it all in the garbage and it ate through the can, the floor, and down to the basement just like in Alien.

"Dave, just for the record ~ there is no such thing as "too big" a slice of cake either."



Correct!

"What is dat?"

It's an 8-layer Cointreau ganache, vanilla & chocolate cake with milk chocolate frosting over a dark chocolate glaze!

It was almost impossible to cut into pieces, I had to do it carefully, like excavating geologic layers.

And yes, it was GOOOO-OOOD! Just like Aunt Bee used to make! Barney wanted 2 pieces!

Simple dinner. Pork chops, fried green apples, and mashed potato’s.
Cheers
Btw, it’s on a serving platter. I can eat a lot but not that much!

Try cutting it with a handled cheese wire on a flat cutting surface. They're also good for cutting cheesecakes and mousse filled cakes. This is what they look like.

Good idea Lori. I use dental floss to cut when I make cinnamon rolls.

I used the last of my bottle of Gusano Rojo to make some Tequila Lime Chicken

I looked at the worm in the bottom of the measuring cup and thought “Eh, why not?”. So I skewered it and roasted it along with the chicken, served over a bed of slivered fried corn tortillas and a melted four cheese blend. Not too bad, the worm had a bit of a nutty taste. (sorry about the crappy cell phone pic)

Lori, Those Cheese cutting wires are the first choice of culinary assassins.
