Current update: 7/26/02
Below are some
recipes for stuff I've made (at least once). All are tasty, many use hot
peppers or pepper product(s), and I'm not dead yet. Anyway, click on the link to get to the recipes I've
added. I have several hundred on little hand-written notes and word processor
documents and in memory that I'm adding when I get around to it. Here's what
I've added so far.

Here's what I think is in each page as of the 8/24/02 update:
- The roasted
vegetable with honey and mustard page is one of my favorites.
- Hot sweet potato soup [*]
It gets a star, and
not an underline, because
it’s only average.

mango—too tasty to be a salsa, too odd to be in a cookbook.

with 3 peppers—tasty,
yet odd, and slightly
