Heat’em Up and Feel Young: The Fires of Youth Cocktail

Chiles are good in mixed drinks. There aren’t a lot of specific recipes, though. My recently-published World’s Quickest Bar Guide (for Kindle) has very few options, and believe me, I looked.

It’s Wednesday, and I’m About to Join the e-Published…

I’ve got a short cookbook about ready for publication. Not as a paper item, though; for the Amazon Kindle. I’m trying that out first, to learn the ropes and see how it goes. Once I know more about exact publication date, etc., I’ll let you know so you can get a bajillion copies and vault […]
