A Spicy yummy upgrade to peanut sauce has been on mind for a while now, hanging out on the back burner somewhere. Overdue for a lunch break I was scrolling through Pinterest at yummy things to eat. After catching a glimpse at a peanut sauce dish I remembered my vision and zoomed over to the kitchen to play.

Now in all honesty, I play in the kitchen a lot. Sometime recipes turn out super yummy and sometimes they flop. I use all fresh, super good ingredients so it’s rarely something is completely inedible, unless it’s burned to a crisp granola, which I’ve done, oops, or cookie mush all over the oven, which has happened more than a few times. Oops!

Today was a true victory of heath and an insanely good meal that I can’t wait to make for guests. Mike is my taste tester always, and in he tells me I’ve outdone myself with this one. You have to hear the town crier proclamation to get the full effect. He’s equally enthusiastic about expressing himself when my food bombs.

Here’s the recipe! Try it out and let me know how it goes over with you and your crew.
