Homemade Chile Powder and Crushed Pepper Flakes

I recently posted about the ornamental peppers I’m growing in pots around the reservation here.

PJ never got to go out for a Mother’s Day dinner, and I’ve not been hearing the end of it so I decided to fix that, just as soon as possible. I asked her to look through our wish list of restaurants to try, and I’d […]
