Yep! Your’ seeing this right! Holy Hot Peppers! Read on for Joy’s story…


At our Club one night we sat next to Joy and Brit and they had just ordered a pizza. When the pizza came out, Joy reached for the hot pepper shaker.  After that, it was all comedy, and I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.  I have never seen anything like this in my whole life.  Joy LOVES hot peppers and as each piece was consumed I learned a little bit more about her.

Joy LOVES hot peppers and she says it is never too hot for her… Continue reading “Yep! Your’ seeing this right! Holy Hot Peppers! Read on for Joy’s story…”


Chef Greg’s Wine Dinner, Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Avocado, Fresh Grapefruit and Citrus Vinaigrette


Back in November 2019 Executive Chef Greg Colline from Brackett’s Crossing Country Club in Lakeville, Minnesota used my Spicy Shrimp and Seafood Rub on one of his dishes for their Club’s Wine Dinner.  I can’t get over the gorgeous presentation and he said the members loved it!

What can you expect to see in Book Two? Small Plates and Appetizers – Today, a Spicy Shrimp Small Plate

2/4/2020 This would be great to serve for a Valentines Day Dinner for you and your significant other or for a small dinner party. I came up with this last night, and it was scrumptious!  I used my Spicy Shrimp and Seafood Rub (which you can order on my website store). The whole dish took 15-20 minutes from beginning to end.  As a small plate serve 1-3 Shrimp per person or as a dinner for 2 serve 4-7 Shrimp per person depending on Size.  I used the largest Shrimp I could find (13-15 per pound) which means these are big!

Flavors and Description: The Shrimp is Spicy (but just enough), the Peppers are Sweet, and the Jalapeño, after Sautéed has a mild heat.  The Kale adds a smooth texture, and an earthy flavor, the Cilantro adds spunk (and always compliments well with highly spiced foods), the fresh cut Cherub Tomato adds a coolness and freshness, and a good squeeze of a freshly, picked Meyer Lemon adds a a burst of Citrus, and finishes off the whole dish. Happy, happy!
