Quadruple Chili Cheeseburgers

This recipe is awesome. A lot of work, but if you like spice, it is well worth the effort for a great change of pace. The chipotle mayo is good on other foods, so, double the mayo recipe and keep it around for other things. Makes a mean topping on a BLT.

BLT Sandwiches with Candied Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Jam

Bacon was too sweet. A lot of work for a BLT. BUT the tomato jam is wonderful. I have found several uses already for this wonderful, tasty jam.

Mexican Street Corn Salad (Esquites)

This is an amazing recipe. It is delicious, especially now that the corn is fresh and in the green market. I used spicy jalapeno (there are various degrees of spiciness to jalapenos. I also used a heaping teaspoon of Penzie's medium hot chili. It was amazing. Next time I will double the recipe. Thank you so much.

10 Overlooked Thai Dishes in Chicago from Leela Punyaratabandhu of 'SheSimmers'

I cannot comment about these restaurants or dishes, but I am shocked that you did not include anything from Arun's.

I only wish they would open in New York.
