I love to try the new and unexpected and this magazine definitely delivered on both accounts. I was drooling over the yummy looking chocolate cookies on the cover and was excited to learn they involved chocolate and cayenne pepper. I was nervous they'd be super spicy which thanks to my Austrian heritage, I'm so not used to, but the pepper and cinnamon they are rolled in gives them more of a spicy warmth that makes them taste like a cookie version of a cup of hot chocolate. They were a huge hit at my school, at Mr. Sprinkle's workplace, and got a thumbs up from Sister Sprinkle who is a huge foodie. Disfrutar!
