Let me start by saying, MY Mom is a breast cancer survivor. Take that for what it’s worth. The dawning of October breeds the dawning of Breast Cancer Month in Canada. Suddenly the entire nation sees a influx of pink ribbons. Pink ribbons on coffee cups. Pink ribbons on jewellery. Pink ribbons on t-shirts. Pink ribbons on toilet seats. Okay, truth be told I haven’t seen them on toilet seats, yet. But mark my words, it’s coming. Every October, like clockwork, I think we should do a Breast Cancer product. And every year I don’t do one. But it seems like everyone else does. One year we held a $1 to BC for every Peppermaster jar returned empty. That little effort went over like a lead balloon. Suffice to say, I’m not writing this blog to tell you about a new Peppermaster product, because, as you can tell by the title of this article, I don’t need to tell anyone about Breast Cancer, it’s become a giant marketing machine. If you don’t believe me, simply Google: Breast Cancer Product and click on images. It is obvious that, at least to marketers, Breast Cancer is lucrative. If you’re in a room with 8 women in it, have a look around. One of those people, statistically, will get cancer. If you’re a man, and it’s a room of men, it’s an auditorium of 1,000, you need to fill. Interestingly, at the moment my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, ALL of the Breast Cancer studies, at that time, had been done on men. Not a single one had been done on women. Since that time, the Breast Cancer movement has taken a charge. Farbeit for me to recognize that the majority of family shoppers, to date is still women, I sort of understand why manufacturers and retailers decide to make a breast cancer product. I’m still not going to do that. If they want to do something for Breast Cancer, make it a corporate issue. Do it all day, every day, not just in October. Now, I’ve done my bit. Eat well, exercise regularly, and for heaven’s sake. Go buy something with a pink ribbon on it. It’s Breast Cancer month.

After a stressful month and a 1/2 with so many ups and downs I thought I was a flight of stairs. The vacation I took by car was the detox from my worries and stress that I needed. Being alone in my travels for many of the longer stints allowed me to just veg out. The times I spent with my chilehead brethren was exactly what I needed in this time in my life. I will never forget all that was done for me and the friendships I have forged that will be long-lasting. This trip changed me. In the coming days I will recount the love I felt from this great community on my long chilehead adventure.

Welcome, welcome, to week three of the Eat More Heat Skinny Dip and Chunky Dunkaroo!  I’m your host, John Scrovak, and today we have a dip recipe coming to us from the folks at Rising Sun Pepper Farm.  This dip utilizes their Three Pepper Garlic Hot Sauce, which was recently reviewed by Anthony here.  Let’s kick off this dip review, shall we? Ingredients: 16oz Softened cream cheese, 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1oz packet Hidden Valley Ranch mix, 1/2 cup beer, 1/2 cup Rising Sun Pepper Farm Three Pepper Garlic Hot Sauce Recipe: Combine cheese and ranch dip in a bowl, then stir in beer and hot sauce. Review: FIREFLAVOR This dip is great in its simplicity, and its capacity for change.  This is because you can use absolutely any beer to fulfill the beer requirement for this dip, and, depending on the beer you use, it can change the flavor entirely.  You could use a pumpkin ale in the fall, for example, to give it a hint of the season.  For my purposes, I used Doggie Style Pale Ale from Flying Dog Brewery.  The dip is thick and hearty, and it’s simple and easy to make.  These are all bonuses for making something at the last minute to bring to a party.  The flavor of the hot sauce seeks to make this dip, and defiantly pronounces itself while simultaneously blending in to the creamy mixture blanketing your tongue.  While there is a level of heat present, it’s not excessive enough to warrant a medium rating so this gets a Mild heat rating, while the deliciousness give it a Notable rating.

It was beyond sad that after 5 straight years of attending, I had to miss out on Jungle Jim's Weekend of Fire in the Cincinnati, Ohio suburb of Fairfield this year. The WOF is not only the only major fiery foods show within driving distance from where I live in the St. Louis, Missouri; but perhaps like no other chilehead event, the show producers have accepted and embraced the hot sauce bloggers so much that this feels like a home away from home. Kindly, photographer extraordinaire Jimmy Bonaminio (who happens to be the son of Jungle Jim's owner Jim Bonaminio) had compiled a video highlight reel of Saturday's events and send it to me. So without further ado, here is Day One of the 7th Annual Weekend of Fire: As a coda, you can listen to my interview with Jim Beckett and Stephanie Adams of Jungle Jim's on the most recent episode of the Weekly Firecast as they give a good preview of the show!

One week ago we had a Sunday Morning sermon held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA for the Chile Pepper Extravaganza. The man behind this makeshift church was Patter Fam Sauces‘ Pastor Sam Peters and his wife Joyce. The congregation was made up of vendors and chileheads from the event. The video below would have been posted right after the sermon but my YouTube account was compromised and Sam and Joyce told me it would be fitting if I waited until today – the Sunday after – to post the video. I started filming right after the second hymn began. I hope you enjoy the very first Church of the Chile Pepper.
