We have many new subscribers to our news letter. Thank you so much and welcome. Please feel free to send your questions and comments to me. I welcome the feed back.
I received a lot of positive e-mail concerning opening a Hot and Spicy Forum. As I told you last month Forum members would be able to interact by sharing recipes, get questions answered, offer suggestions to each other and of course your host. This would also give you a chance to win cook books and spices. I plan to start the Forum in November, 2003 and hope to see you all there.

GUEST CORNER: CAYENNE PEPPER IN IN COFFEE?
I met Stephanie West Allen, J.D. online at one of my networking sites. These sites can be just like business luncheons, there is always one person who holds your attention. I made note that I was the host and editor of Hot and Spicy at BellaOnline and Stephanie signed my guest book because she is a lover of chile peppers. So much so that she puts a little cayenne pepper in her coffee. This was something new to me, but I was curious to know why she did this. Her answer, with her permission is shared below:
"Hi again Vanette,
The cayenne and coffee question . . . The capsaicin (powerful chile pepper chemical) in the cayenne makes for a great partner with caffeine. Try it. I have gotten more people "addicted" to this dynamic duo.
As you probably know, Dr. Andrew Weil has said that chile eaters experience a rush not unlike that caused by psychotropic drugs. Some research shows that chiles cause endorphins to be released in the brain.
All in all, quite a combo to get one going in the morning.
Yours in the spirit of chile peppers,
Thanks Stephanie, I must admit that I have not tried this yet. But certainly plan to, especially on those Mondays when we have staff meetings.
