Whether it’s maximizing flavor, saving money on home remedies, or spicing up your beauty routine, Suzy Scherr finds the solution in a quick trip to the kitchen. Cocoa powder and cayenne pepper are classic flavor resources and they pack a host of holistic health benefits. Cocoa is full of minerals like zinc and iron, skin-refreshing flavonoids, and antidepressant properties. Meanwhile, cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, which has been associated with boosting metabolism, lowering blood pressure, and even relieving pain.
In The Cayenne & Cocoa Companion, Scherr treats you to tasty recipes and DIY home fixes: Chicken Mole, Tabasco-Style Hot Sauce, Acne-Fighting Face Masks, Back Soothing Balm, Cocoa Candles, Organic Garden Spray, and more. No matter the craving or problem, Scherr delivers homespun advice and simple sources of help found right in your pantry.
