Spicy Tips for Steaming Lobster
We’re huge lobster fans in the Madness household. We once took a trip to Maine just so we could buy lobster from the ubiquitous roadside stands and cook until our hearts and bellies were contented. And then we ate more lobster.

Chiles Rellenos, or stuffed chili peppers, is an amazingly delicious and one of the most perfect uses of your chili pepper harvest.

It is a basic recipe, but a must for any chili pepper recipe list.
Grilled Turkey Burgers with Pear-Jalapeno Slaw
The other day we were watching the TV show “Chopped”. It’s a great show where 4 chefs compete to create 3 dishes, with one left standing. This particular episode included ground turkey” in the basket, and at least 2 of the chefs complained that they disliked working with it. Say what? We at Madness love ground turkey. It absorbs the flavors you introduce into the recipe, so it really is like a nice, blank slate to work with. We understand the criticism that ground turkey can turn out dry. That is true of any lean meat. The key is in the preparation.

This was our 4th year and we were able to sample ribs from each company. Most were absolutely delicious, as expected, though there were a few disappointments. The biggest disappointment, however, was with "Hog Wild" – they didn't bring any Ghost Pepper Barbecue Sauce this year! Quite the disappointment. They had a bottle in the back last year and it had just the right amount of heat for this heat lover.
