Some Like It Hot

I know Dean’s been doing most of the posts here, but I just couldn’t resist this hot little Habanero design! I love cooking and I love cooking with peppers! The hotter the better and you can’t get hotter than this great photograph of colorful red, green and yellow habanero peppers at a farmer’s market in New Mexico.

Want to feel the heat? Try this great recipe from Cooking Enthusiast! And don’t think I forgot the music. Who can resist dancing along in the kitchen with Robert Palmer’s Some Like it Hot?
