Test Kitchen - Debut Announcement

I was so tempted to just call the category "Test Kitchen Tuesdays" because it rolls off the tongue but I didn't want to marry myself to that idea in case I can't hold up my end of the commitment. So, leeway was had and a day of the week wasn't confirmed. HOWEVER, this does not mean I will become a slacker - I am merely just making sure should life get in the way, I am not held liable.

Anywho, I've had this idea in my mind for a while now that I should do a test kitchen day! I wanted to do one for whenever I got my own place but so far, I'm not sure when that will be. However, I realized that delaying this creative thought for the sole excuse of not having my own kitchen was silly so I'll move on with it. TEST KITCHEN is a personal challenge. Here's how it is going to work:
  1. I will pick an ingredient I haven't cooked with before (or a concept I haven't used an ingredient for before)
  2. I'll post a picture of it up on Facebook and Twitter (you have to like/follow me!) on a Tuesday
  3. You will have until Thursday to shout out ideas
  4. I'll get cooking/creating before the next Tuesday
  5. A Tuesday post goes up on the dish made & a new ingredient revealed
Like I said, I'm not 100% committed that it will be on a Tuesday but the week turnaround time is my goal. It'll be a way for you to shout out ideas on dishes you want to see made and a way to force myself to get creative and learn more (and post up recipes for you on a regular basis, hah). What do you say? 

This week's Test Kitchen ingredient: orange habanero chile peppers (comment on Facebook/Twitter!)
