Welcome, Chili Pepper Lovers, to our July Newsletter
Welcome, Chili Pepper Lover! Here we are, mid-July, in the midst of a beautiful summer and eagerly awaiting the fruit of our chili pepper plants. It's a bit maddening here, actually, seeing the plants in zone 5 just about ready to produce, but not quite. So close! We can't wait to pick those jalapenos, habanenos, serranos, poblanos...so many to choose from, not to mention the fresh sprouts, tomatoes, potatoes, tomatillos and more.
We hope your gardens are just as productive. We have some new recipes for you, along with blog posts and interesting chili pepper information. Enjoy!

Topsail Island, NC – Seafood Heaven
We at Madness (that's really Mike and Patty) decided on a Seafood Madness exploratory trip in order to celebrate 15 wonderful years together. We love beach trips, but we also love exploring what areas have to offer in terms of food and culture. Having been to Myrtle Beach a few years ago, we knew we liked the general area, but were looking for something a bit less commercial. Lucky for us, after a bit of research, we found Topsail Island, North Carolina.
The Beautiful Simplicity of Shrimp Tacos
This is a continuation of our collection of posts from Topsail Island, North Carolina. What a great trip! We mentioned finding a wonderful roadside seafood stand with fresh seafood available, caught fresh from the ocean. While there were a number of restaurants available to choose from with seafood on the menu, we couldn't resist buying our own fresh seafood and making our own meal. After spending time on the beach and after all the travel, the first night we wanted something simple, and to me, simple is Shrimp Tacos.
Grilled Lobster with Homemade Barbecue Sauce
We love grilling in the summertime. Our backyard backs to a large pond, where it is quiet and serene. We recently cooked up a batch of our homemade barbecue Sauce – Chipotle-Bacon-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce – and decided lobster should be on the menu for dinner. The sauce goes great on anything, really, but there is something delicious about lobster on the grill.
High River Sauces Conjures Up 3 New Sauce – Press Release
High River Sauces was started by music industry veteran, food junkie and Heavy Metal Cookbook author Steve "Buckshot" Seabury. His cookbook titled "Mosh Potatoes – Recipes, Anecdotes & Mayhem From The Heavyweights Of Heavy Metal" (Simon & Schuster) is a collection of recipes from the biggest names in Hard Rock & Heavy Metal. While putting together the cookbook Seabury found that his passion for BBQ and Hot Sauces was shared by many of his favorite icons. After getting such a great response from his friends and family he decided to start High River Sauces.
