Web Finds

Hot Peppers Are Us
If you're like me, you love hot peppers. Here's a Web site I recently found that features these fiery gems. Fire Girl features information about growing chiles, recipes, seed exchanges, and, of course, sauces for sale. You can even join other chile fanatics for a weekly chat session. There are also links to other great hot pepper sites.
