Savor uncorks a bottle of hot stuff
Nothing says "I love you" quite like preparing a home-cooked meal.
But why is the meal making you sweat? Because we're past Valentine's Day, and this month's edition of our food segment, Savor, brings the heat.
Food stylist and producer Will Smith rounded up Joey from Joey's Hot Sauce, and we'll have a chat about peppers and Scoville units and other things to know about adding serious spice to food--without hurting yourself.
Will's recipes for the month:
