Don't Be Afraid of the Cayenne



In the hot cocoa mix, that is.

We approve.

As a matter of fact, Ramona said this morning, "Alton should start another new show: 'Good Drinks.'"

Hi Karen, update on my reading of your book The Rosary:L Keeping company with Jesus and Mary. It's such a smooth temparte kind of read. so enjoyable. i don't get many moments to read, and usually it's at night, just before turning out the light. I just finished the part where you explain how the Hail Mary is about Jesus. illuminating. I'm enjoying this and savoring it.

Too funny--I JUST made that recipe for hot chocolate, on your recomendation. I did leave out the pepper for the kids. I'll add it in the next batch! :)

Have you ever seen Chocolat? She does the same thing--actually, she puts in chili powder. Oh that hot chocolate looks SO GOOD! I have an entire book of hot chocolate recipes that I love.

Cayenne pepper is so versatile -- It's very good in chocolate dishes and also in mashed potatoes, and on turkey breast with a little lemon juice. Yum!

It's really not too hot and spicy? I am a WUSS. Plain ol' black pepper gives me terrible heartburn.

Thanks, Gardenia, for your reactions to and kind words about the book.

Tina, do make sure it's a pinch, and I haven't seen Chocolat, Emily, but given the title, of course I should. :)

And, I'll have to throw a little cayenne on the next turkey, and, Chocolate Heart, I'm thinking you might want to stay away from the cayenne altogether ... Instead of "wuss" I'd call you One of Delicate Senses. :) There really is a bit of a kick from the cayenne -- subtle, but it's there.
