Chasing the high of another chili pepper? Ever wonder what makes us crave spicy food? The neurological science behind the pain in your tongue is fascinating, catch it all here!
Lately I've found I crave a bowl of beans doused in hot sauce somewhere around 8 or 9pm. It's not my healthiest habit, but it's not so outrageous that I'm worried about its ill effects. Of course, the upside here is that I'm making beans regularly and have a great source of protein on hand for quick meals.
A cake I've long pined for, now solidly in my arsenal of treats. It took me a while to attempt this cake (for no good reason), I hesitated to tackle its structure and chemistry. Suffice it to say, there are few things as delightful as a cake soaked in milk.
I love the interplay of sweet and spicy in this condiment. The luscious flesh of the mango pairs perfectly with the crisp body of a jalapeño. Make a giant batch of this and serve it all week with fish, on chips, in tacos. It fits your every need!
- Two Mangos, peeled and cut into small cubes
- Juice of one Lime
- 1 Jalapeño, diced
- 1/4 cup chopped Cilantro
- Salt to taste
- Chop everything, toss in a bowl, then enjoy! It gets better if you let it sit together in the fridge.
The best way to keep your kitchen cool this summer is to cook outside. Hit the grill and have a taco party. Easy to make for a crowd, simple enough for one.
