Trapped inside and loving the time to cook!

by Teresa Torrella

Adventuring outside is out of the question the past couple days.  I don't remember a time where we had mosquitoes swarming this bad. 

My poor boys ran out to put our scraps in our compost and were attacked relentlessly.  My oldest said he looked like he was wearing black pants they were so thick.  I would take pics to share but I am running and flaying my arms so much when I try to run to the car or walk the dogs that it would just be a blur.  I am sure if my neighbors are looking out the window, they are having quite the laugh.  

So what does our family do when our outside adventures are blocked....we cook!  Give us a chance to spend days cooking and you will find one happy family.

From monkey bread and biscuits and gravy to Pit Boss Pizza and the Jeddy Melt, we are immersed in kitchen creations!

Thank goodness we are doing our 30 day core rebuilding challenge, cause we are going to need it after eating all this food.

Since, I am known as Saucy T, I thought I would share a recipe for what I made.

My Organic Jeddy Accentuated Hot Sauce (replica of Frank's Hot sauce)

Since I am still awaiting my cayenne peppers to finish growing, I had to use some dried peppers.

Ingredients
  • 10 dried organic cayenne peppers
  • water to cover
  • 1 1/2 cups organic white vinegar to cover
  • cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Jeddy's Original
  • 1 tsp salt
Method
  • Cut the tops off of your peppers, then place them in a small bowl. Heat your water to boiling, then pour it over the peppers. Try to keep them submerged. Let your peppers soak in the water for about 30 minutes, then drain them.
  • Add the peppers to the bowl with the garlic cloves, then pour vinegar over them to cover. Again try to keep the peppers from floating, and soak for 30 minutes more.
  • Pour the peppers, garlic, and vinegar into a vitamix or food processor and add the salt & Jeddy's. Blend until smooth.
Notes

Since the seeds make the heat factor rise, if you don't want it too spicy remove some seeds.
