My hubby decided to cook me a meal, bless him. He is not an experienced chef, by any means, but he is full of good intentions.
I tasted the meal and found it to be delicious except for one small problem. It was hot and when I say hot I mean HOT. I asked him what was in it. He said it was only pepper and that he'd put a little extra in as he knows I love hot and spicy food.
I'm not an expert chef but I knew a little extra pepper wasn't the culprit. All I had was black pepper and white pepper so I asked him which one he'd used. "The pepper powder". I was puzzled so I asked him to show it to me. It was pepper, CAYENNE pepper. "How much did you put in?" I asked. "I was generous so I put in a heaped teaspoon". Have you heard the expression 'twice burner'? I'm still suffering. Beware of a man in the kitchen!!
