TASTE NO EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!

October 01, 2016

Greetings- I met you and your sauce @ DIY. Sadly, my Manzana did not make it the week; I wish I'd bought the Hot Box like my brother did. I ate it on everything: even put water in the dregs and poured *that* on my burrito. [It was with a great lamentation that I emptied said bottle.] I believe your sauce is the best I have ever tasted, and am hoping you'll consider special releases in larger bottles. I would pay $45 for, say, a 22 ounce or 750 ml bottle of special release hotness. And it would look very... Read more

Buzz Over to Honey Bee Market!

February 25, 2016

I was born in Detroit. Nine months later, my brother was born (yeah...figure that one out). While my mom was in labor, she could hear gunfire. When she left the hospital, tanks occupied the streets. It was the 1967 riots. My parents and I were living with my grandparents in a 1906 town house on the corner of Scotten and Bagley in Mexican Village. Like so many other folks, my parents decided to move to the suburbs. But my grandparents remained in Mexican Village. For the next eighteen years, my brother and I would spend weeks at a time with them. We'd roam the alleys, explore abandoned structures, walk into... Read more

Joe Vaughn

February 19, 2016

I met Joe 20 some years ago when a client at WDET 101.9 FM thought we'd make a good creative team. She was right! It was the early nineties, and both of us had just hit the streets as independent creatives in Detroit. I was an art director/designer/illustrator and Joe was a photographer. Technology was changing the creative business and we were determined to take advantage of it. Just to give you an idea, there were no cell phones, Joe was shooting on film, and I just mortgaged a Quadra 9500...Apple's dark days. We received strange CDs in the mail from Netscape claiming to give us access...

Long Lake Market is Talkin' Sauce!

January 26, 2016

Alice told us she expected a meeting about hot sauce to last only a few minutes. Her customers aren't into the hot stuff (food). After a fun conversation and some serious taste-testing, Alice and Chef Jack decided to go with Poblano and Cherry Bomb...the milder of the bunch. We twisted their arms and suggested they offer the Hot Box #1 too. Within a couple days the Hot Boxes were sold and the reorders started coming in. "​Long Lake Market has been family owned and operated since 1960. We pride ourselves on our custom cut prime beef and seafood, handpicked fresh produce, and... Read more

Simply Good is Simply Good!

January 21, 2016

Hello Hot Saucers,I met chefs, Shanny and Bill, a long time ago when I was lucky enough to attend a cooking class in their home. They taught me how to grill better, BBQ better, sear properly and a number of other cooking tips. Since they lived in my neighborhood, I would make a point to stop by their home on my walks to pick up the amazing nitrate/nitrite-free sausage they prepared.  I guess all good things must come to an end (and lead to better things). They were so busy, they moved their business to a cool space in Birmingham. Here they teach classes, prepare yummy foods-to-go and... Read more
