For example, the Jalapeno version of the traditional Beer Can Chicken is genius. I never would have thought to stuff the bird's cavity with peppers and use a pepper to plug the neck hole. The result was outstanding. It wasn't too hot, but had a very sweet peppery flavor.
On the other hand, the recipes for grilled stuffed peppers are pretty vague. They basically amount to something like: "take a pepper, core it out, stuff it with some cheese & things, and grill it for about 15 minutes..." My wife saw me making the cheese stuffing and gave me her old standard, "you're not working from a real recipe, are you?" (which is her gentle way of accusing me of just winging it). So I showed her the recipes in the cookbook. She just rolled her eyes and said, "your book was written by a guy, wasn't it?" (Should I be offended?)
The recipes cover every hour of the day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, etc. They also cover various holidays. I can't complain about the variety of the recipes; in that regard, they're very creative. But the level of detail just isn't what I am used to with my other cookbooks. But yeah, I'm a dumb guy... Who needs instructions, right?
Again though, I would approach these recipes more as "inspirations" than exact recipes. But as long as you're willing to be adventuresome and take responsibility for your own creations, the book contains some pretty cool ideas. Use your own skills to make them happen.
I am a huge chile (and garlic) head and I have an appreciation for the "it hurts so good" experience of spicy peppers (including habanero).
I can't WAIT to try the recipes from this book. There is more of a variety (including some very unique ones like Jalapeno Ice Cream)than many books on chile peppers.
I am looking forward to Michael's future books and will purchase them all!!!!
Now to find some guinea pigs to try these recipes on....smile!
GREAT job, Michael! :) :) :)
