Can you remember the mouth watering scent of fresh baking cinnamon-gingerbread from your grandmother’s oven - or the heady aromatic steam as you cradle a good cup of Indian chai? How about a frosty mug of root beer on a hot summer day? of perhaps the snap of licorice candy in the fall? Or a crackling fire outside in the early spring?
Sounds like a lot going on, doesn't it...
Well, it is. and somehow, my friend / roommate Shamus* managed to make all seasons happen at once. The result (and i was neutral, shading to skeptical) is the first recipe not guided by my mad mind. Originally slated to be named "Vulcan", the sexy, smoky scent spoke more of the Greek god of the forge. This recipe is HOT.
* = Shamus has a lot going on. Makes sense.
