"I love fruit, when it is expensive."
-Sir Arthur Wing Pinero, 19th century dramatist

The refrigerator light goes on...

Another example of using ingredients that activate complementary taste buds. Sweet, spicy, savory this is the perfect complement to southwestern or Caribbean food.

I think that this recipe is a good example of using what you have in the house to make a great recipe. My brother called me to tell me that he and his young daughters had made this with cantaloupe. Since then, I have tried pineapple and honeydew. Yum to all.

Chili Powder

Chili powder is not simply dried chilies but usually has other spices blended in. These can include oregano, garlic, coriander, cumin, onion powder allspice and cloves.
