Nothing tastes better on a hot day than a good Jamaican rum punch.
Hot buttered rum punch is a winter go-to of mine for lots of reasons. It’s yummy, warms you up, and it’s a good way to unwind with friends after a day of preparing for the holidays. I like this version because it also brings a little heat thanks to some cayenne powder.
Strawberries are a healthy snack with a great deal of vitamin C. They’re also a very spring- and summer-oriented food to chow down on. Here’s one spicy way to enjoy them by the grill.
Where is it written that canned cranberry sauce has to be served with at Thanksgiving? The sweet, sour, hot tastes of this chutney compliments turkey, chicken, and even pork.

Use either frozen or fresh blueberries for this compote. You also can adjust the heat by adding fewer chipotles to begin with and then adding more until you reach the desired heat. Chipotles in adobo sauce can be found in the Hispanic section of your supermarket. Serve over pork tenderloin or meat of your choice.
