The age-old saying “if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen” doesn’t apply to Heat Seekers co-hosts Roger Mooking and Aarón Sánchez. The spicy-food-loving hosts test their limits with some of the most-fiery food across the country, eating insanely hot foods like Inferno Soup with eight kinds of chiles and Habanero Mad Mac. If you’ve missed any of their heat-seeking adventures, don’t worry — you can watch full episodes of Heat Seekers online for free.
The entire series is currently streaming on Cooking Channel, and for even more of Roger and Aarón’s shenanigans, check out hilarious candid photos of them diving face first into spicy food. The struggle is real, and you may cry laughing while watching them try to beat the heat.
While you’re at it, you can also watch Roger’s other show, Man Fire Food, and Aarón’s road-tripping on Taco Trip.

Pasta salad: it's more than a side dish -- make it a meal.
Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?
Sure, pasta salad is a picnic side dish. But why wait till Saturday afternoons to eat it? I don’t care what anyone says — pasta salad is dinner. You eat pasta primavera or fettuccine Alfredo for dinner, why not pasta salad? Is it just because it’s cold? Salads and sandwiches can be dinner, and they’re both usually served cold. Cold soups are for dinner, and sometimes — maybe not on the best days — cereal is dinner. It’s time pasta salad got a promotion. Yes, a scoop is lovely served with grilled picnic-y fare. But pasta salad makes a nice weekday meal on its own, too.
Roger Mooking isn’t one to doctor up a box of bow ties with a bottle of Zesty Italian; the Everyday Exotic host is known for making everyday recipes, well, exotic. His pasta salad does call for bow ties, but it’s dressed with a homemade creamy green onion dressing. Red, yellow and orange peppers add color and crunch and toasted coconut mellows the bite from the onions in the dressing. Plus the unexpected sweet, crispy bits of are a welcome addition — you’ll wonder why you didn’t add toasted coconut to pasta salad sooner.

Fresh Okra - Photo Courtesy Souvlaki for the Soul
I love having a CSA. Every week, my farmer delivers fresh-picked tomatoes, peaches, herbs and as many squash as I can carry. But then, there’s the okra situation. For the last month, my CSA box has included a big bag of okra. “I hope you’re not tired of okra,” my farmer says each week. I vaguely smile. I’m not tired of okra — I’m stumped by it.
