Cooking with Frank’s® RedHot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce Review

Product was provided for review. Opinion 100% my own as always Frank’s® RedHot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce has always been a staple in my household while growing up. You could find a bottle of “hot sauce” whenever you need it. My relatives and I used to use it on buffalo wings and popcorn. When I was younger, I used to eat Salt and Vinegar chips with Frank’s® RedHot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce on it! Those were the days, lol. Author Rachel Rappaport wrote Cooking with Frank’s® RedHot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce which is the first and only cookbook exclusively dedicated (not officially sponsored) to recipes featuring Frank’s® RedHot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce. As you can see from the picture above, my family loves to bring the heat to our food. We keep a nice big bottle on Continue Reading »
