Pavlova in Purgatory

Another happy tuesday spice lovers. This week, I’m not bringing you my own recipe but rather a review of someone else’s.

I’ve noticed my own recipes creeping up in heat lately so I’ve decided to pick something mild from my new favourite chilli cook book.

Best Served Hot?

Happy tuesday all of you, today we’re going to look at the first of Grim Reaper Foods’ freebies, the Vengeance oil from their thai style gift box.

It’s a chilli oil but, unlike most of the ones I’ve seen before, there’s a little more going on than just the chilli. This oil also has ginger and lemongrass for that authentic thai taste.

Green Fiend

Hello again spice lovers, this week we’re looking at a rather hot but also rather different sauce that I got for christmas, back when I still had a backlog of product samples to showcase.

Now I’ve just got a backlog of products I actually paid for. That I picked up because they were exciting to me in some way but couldn’t be talked about at the time due to scheduling.

The same reason I’ve left this review so late.

But that’s enough behind the scenes chitchat, it’s time to finally bring you the Unusual Chutney Company’s Fiendfyre:

An unusually green coloured product for something that claims to be mostly reaper, though it’s clearly not entirely green chillies as there are brown and even some slight reddish notes to the sauce.

Spicy Sweet Potato Dip

Hey folks, I mentioned my fellow food blogger Dana from I’ve Got Cake before, when I modified her brownie recipe, but this time I’m straight up sharing one of her posts.

You see, I had some friends over for boardgames yesterday, chilli boardgames that you’ll be hearing about soon, and I needed a quick, thematic snack that fit a wide range of dietary requirements.

The answer? Dana’s sweet potato and sriracha dip, simplified just a step further using a readily available vegan sriracha mayo instead of the regular sauce and a much harder to find vegan version of standard mayonaise.

It came out smooth, even creamy, and rather delicious, with a nice top of a two out of ten after-heat. It was gone in no time but the recipe remains and is so very simple.

I’ll let the author fill you in on the rest:

I've Got Cake

I’ve been driving around with a dent in my car.

Some asshole backed into me while my car was parked and left a dent that looked like Bigfoot pushed in my rear quadrant.

Happened about a month ago and I finally got the goddamn thing fixed.
That was on Monday.
