(If you’re wondering what the Tabasco 10 Ingredient Blogger Challenge is, check out my first post on Spicy Chocolate Meringue Cookies to get the details.) I’ve really been enjoying the challenge.

Okay, so I’ve been a little absent lately. All of a sudden life got real and busy and I got a little behind on things. So, in recompense, you get 5 blog posts this week. Yep. 5 whole blog posts, all of which will involve Tabasco sauce. “Why Tabasco?” you ask. Well, friends, because they issued me a challenge. The Tabasco 10 Ingredient Challenge, to be precise.
