    These made such a pretty jar...very nice after sitting several (and I mean several) days!! Dragon breath for sure! I used these in so many things! Thanks for sharing!

    Whew! Those little babies are strong! Good, but I tried it after l day of sitting, and I think I will let it mellow for a few days, at least! Thank you Kelly!

    These are very easy to make, best when left to marinate for a few days. Have other purposes. 1. They keep the mosquitos away. Yes they do! You would be shocked at how many people love these. I have people asking all the time for the recipe. They are also a very good garnish for Bloody Mary's!


Update 6/10: I like to cook more than bake. I like to do a lot of cooking on weekends making dishes that work well as left-overs for lunches. My favorite things to make are Mexican type dishes (enchiladas), soups and different kinds of chili. I love to hang out and swap recipes with my sister Kathy (Chef #: Kasia#3). She has taught me so much about cooking and is a great joy to be with. I work full time as an office manager for a packaging company. I have no children - I am VERY happy just to be an aunt. Even to all the friends of my neices & nephews have adopted me! I enjoy gardening, cooking (of course), reading, playing on the computer and going on weekend trips in either a hotel or a tent. I love going to summer festivals, my favorite being Summerfest in Milwaukee. I a little bit of a rock music geek I spent way too much time playing with my iPod. This hobby has earned me the right of people calling me at odd hours to name that tune or lyric. My favorite cookbook is the cookbook from my mom's church & my Betty Crocker cookbooks (one old & one new).</p>
