Original Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
I didn't try this recipe yet, but in the creator's defense, I think there has been a misunderstanding. Reviewers are complaining the recipe wasn't hot (spicy) enough. Where the recipe submitter states to use "2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce", I believe she is referring to McIlhenny's Tabasco sauce, which is nearly 10 X hotter than Frank's REDHOT. Any chef worth her salt in the kitchen knows that peppers (and their derivatives, i.e. hot sauce) have a heat rating scale varying from zero (red bell pepper) to 16 million (Pure capsaicin and Dihydrocapsaicin). Frank's REDHOT rates 450 units on the heat scale; McIlhenny's Tabasco rates 2,500-5,000 units; therefore Tabasco is roughly 5-10 times hotter than Frank's. If so inclined, try the recipe again, and make the adjustments, either use Tabasco as the recipe is written @ 2 tsp., or use 5-10 times the Frank's (2 teaspoons X 5-10, anywhere from 3.5 to 7 Tablespoons, which is nearly 1/2 cup Frank's). Add slowly to taste. I realize the cooking levels and knowledge of participants on this site varies as much as the pepper ranking scale, so let's cut each other a bit of slack and work together to share some fantastic recipes, Allrecipes cooks! Cheers!

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This was amazing! I have been searching for a recipe similar to the Corn Pudding at PCC Market (Seattle). Great for a Thanksgiving side dish. Thanks Carla!

Plum Quick Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This was excellent! So many different flavors; the zesty lemon and tart plums complimented by the sweet sugar topping, spicy cinnamon, and crunchy pecans. This is a great bread for giving. Thank you for sharing!
