Gave myself a time out. Yep, I have been posting crap – and my constituents called me on it. Easily posting more pics of hot chicks than food…so time for a re-evaluation!
We’ll be meeting with a team of experts to make changes. Lots. Of. Changes.
What the deuce! Apparently, I’ve given you too much of this…
and way too much of this
…but not enough of this…
or maybe this…
or even this…
Look, give me a 2 weeks to retool this blog and make sure the world can go round again.
Mahalos for your consideration.

By now, especially with this weather in Cleveland, you have a kabillion chili peppers…and you haven’t the slightest clue on what to do with them.
Well, how about make your own chili pepper flakes!
Step-1: In your garden, find and pick red chili peppers.
Step-2: Lay them all out on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper for a week to dry.
Step-3: Cut the tops off all the peppers. Wear gloves and try not to touch your eyes. If you go to the restroom, wash your hands 3 times before.
Step-4: Set oven for 225, put tray with peppers in oven. Shake up tray every 30 minutes. The additional oven drying will also help the peppers release essential oils which will enhance the flavors of the chili pepper flakes.
Step-5: Consider wearing mask, goggles, and gloves.
Step-6: Place all dried peppers in food processor and pulse to desired flake size. Be careful not to over grind.
Step-7: Place in airtight container.
Step-8: Label and refrigerate.
Voila. Chili pepper flakes.
Sprinkle liberally on various items and enjoy the fruits…I mean peppers of your labor all fall/winter long.
See, it wasn’t that hard right?
