Hot Lollies Spicy Food Round-Up: 2012 Favorites

Here’s a round up of some of the most favorite of my recipes this year. It’s been a little over a year now since I started this spicy food blog and can’t believe how quickly time has passed. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing it with you. I’m taking a little holiday break and will be back next year with new and fresh ideas on how to spice up your dishes. Just remember, a spicy dish doesn’t mean a super hot dish! I just like mine with some heat but I have made plenty of dishes here to satisfy all palates. Just take a look below for a few you can try for New Year’s Eve!
