We're still thinking up tasty appetizers and game day recipes for the upcoming Super Bowl. Deviled eggs are always popular, but we wanted something a bit different this time around instead of the typical mayo recipe. We were thinking we wanted a bit more zing, but not too much, just enough to kickstart those tastebuds. This was the result. Deviled eggs with horseradish and a spicy brown mustard brought both…

Popped down to the farmers market in Florida this weekend and picked up one of our favorite foods - the avocado. But not just any avocado. The girl at the stand had Choquette avocados and they were begging to jump into our bag. The Choquette avocado is larger than the typical Hass variety that grow year-round. The Choquette season is from October through January, so we were in the right…
Today is International Hot and Spicy Food Day, and we couldn't be happier at Chili Pepper Madness. Hot and spicy food has been our focus here for years, and we consider our web sites to be a celebration of those very things. What is not to love about the hot and spicy? There is something alluring in the thrill of the spicy buzz, the zing that travels up and down your…
We were contacted just before the New Year by a company called Tanteo Spirits LLC. They produce a tequila that is infused with jalapeno peppers and wanted to know if we would like to sample the product. Um, yeah! Given our current tropical locale, the tequila was perfect for experimentation. Patty is an awesome mixologist and prepared this particular recipe, which we enjoyed by the pool. Quite delicious! It's hard to…
Patty and I are hanging out in Florida for a while - it's just too dang cold in the Chicago area and we want warmth! And beach. One of the benefits of our temporary stay is the fresh seafood and local farmers markets. We ran down to the local farmers market, which is only open on Sundays, and snagged a big variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. We'll be set…
Where we live it is cold. I mean COLD. It was in the negative digits last night, bottoming out around -8 degrees, and that is without the wind chill factor. No good! What is a person to do on a cold night? Make chili. Chili is such a wonderful comfort food. Don't you think? One major thing we both love about chili is that it can be made in so…
Pesto! The uber-Italian sauce that is one of life's perfect treats. We're both major suckers for a good pesto. Traditional is awesome, of course, but you can add in some variations to bring in new flavors. Like chili peppers. Or how about roasted chili peppers? Yes!  For this pesto variation, I used Carmen Italian Sweet Peppers, which are so delicious and sweet. They are thicker walled pepper that stand up…
Happy New Year! Cheers to 2015! As the new year approaches, we like to reflect on the previous year and all the good that came from it. Patty and I are so thankful to all of our family and friends, both old and new, and we appreciate having everyone in our lives. We had a wonderful year in business and we made it through healthy, which is the most important…
The big New Year's Eve bash in the neighborhood is getting close and we're teaming up with some of the other neighbors to pull off an evening of elegant small plates. It's a big menu with 9 items as well as a raw bar. I am in charge of the stuffed mushrooms, butternut squash-scallop risotto, 4-cheese-asparagus tarts, and the pork roulade. Here is the dry run of the pork. I'm used…
Whenever Patty has a girls night out, I get to make anything I want. Oftentimes that is chicken wings because I make them as hot as I want. That may include Moruga Wings or Reaper Wings, but not this time. This time I went Thai style. I had myself some bright Orange Thai Chili Peppers and they were screaming for a Thai version of this recipe. These particular peppers aren't…
