Hey fiery food fans. Today’s recipe has a bit of a misleading title.
I’m calling this post “Red Hot Velvet Rings” but the end result isn’t stunningly hot. Or even red in appearance.
What it is is a hotter, more savoury take on red velvet onion rings – An old craze that I still find baffling.
But just because coating onion rings in something as sweet as actual cake batter seems strange to me doesn’t stop the thought of a smooth, milky, fluffy, cake-like texture surrounding a ring with a little bit of bite left from making me salivate.
The feel of cake-battered onion rings was so tempting I just had to try it and, with the shade produced by deep frying red food colouring already making the originals look spicy, I knew it had to be a blog recipe.
So I went out and bought myself some sriracha to experiment.
Hey everyone, it’s time we took another look at Thousand Hills and this time I’m sampling two sauces.
Up first, their Sriracha.
Or at least, that’s what their website calls it. Their bottle tells a different story.
According to the bold, white, block capitals that adorn their green label, this is a “Serenade & Garlic Chilli Sauce”. Serenade being a similar chilli to the red jalapeño and the one shown beneath this text.
Happy new year, everyone!
I know it’s a day late, like my christmas post but I do my reviews on tuesdays and this post is most definitely a review.
It’s something special, too. An unusual type of sauce that I’ve been after since christmas 2016.
That year, I got a naff gift set containing green sriracha.
It wasn’t well made and it had no branding that I could trace. It wasn’t something that I could feature here.
Yet the concept was a good one. I enjoyed that product, despite its poor quality, and have been looking for a better version ever since.
So, while my christmas post was a gift to a reader, today’s is a gift to myself. Taking a quick break from my backlog of freebies and festival finds to look at not one but two sauces that I’m highly excited for.
Hopefully they pique your interest as well.
Hey there spice lovers, this thursday I’d like to talk about a show I started watching just for you.
The name is dire. A no-effort combination of its supernatural element of choice with some all too overused wannabe Apple branding. And the main character’s is even worse.
Olivia Moore, or “Liv” for short. How ironic.
But irony is only enjoyable when it’s coincidental. Or at least portrayed as such. This show goes from “my name is Liv Moore” to “I died” with no more than an “and” in between.
Forced irony like that is just cringy and the trailers set me up to expect little else from the rest of the show, implying that it would be a miserable forbidden love comedy with a supernatural secret forever just moments from discovery.
Oh and hot sauce shoehorned in as a dumb gimmick.
But, since I figured I shouldn’t just bring you things that I knew I liked, I powered through the first and second episode to bring you a review anyway. Then I watched episode three to be sure of my verdict and, to my surprise, ended up getting hooked enough to watch two whole seasons.
If you can look past the terrible naming, poor trailers and lacklustre opening theme (which is less than twenty seconds, by the way), iZombie is remarkably compelling.
Hello again everyone, if you like hot sauce and you’re on the internet, you may well already know what I’m going to talk about today.
Described as “The show with hot questions and even hotter wings.”, this unusually high production youtube series is becoming very popular.
Happy tuesday again, everyone.
About a week ago, I received another free sample package, this time from The Hot Pepper Company (not to be confused with The Chilli Pepper Company). Inside was a single, very hot sauce, looking a little like this:
It’s tuesday again and you know what that means. More hot stuff!
Not that I’m going crazy with the heat today. No, today’s sriracha is a lot milder than the last and made by the Flying Goose brand many of you will know.
But this isn’t their ordinary sriracha. I’m trying their mayo.
Hello again spice lovers and happy tuesday.
This week I bring you a type of sauce from Thailand that’s skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years. Yes, you know it, I’m reviewing a sriracha. But not just any sriracha, this one’s a little different. Continue reading
