June 17 Morning Roundup

Bill Roehl hunts for the world’s hottest pepper in the South metro, Chris spots a Papa John’s sign promoting a dubious sentiment, a giant roundup of gluten-free options in St. Paul via St. Paul Staycation, the Bangkok Blucy debuts at Blue Door Pub featuring mozzarella soaked in coconut milk topped off with pickled carrots, cucumbers, red onions, and ginger, our Flickr pool suggests that it’s time to grill corn already and maybe also time to eat some hickory smoked bacon spaghetti carbonara, Brett from Trout Caviar builds his own earth oven (!), and Kate bakes croissants from scratch. Now: If someone would just bake scratch croissants in a homemade earth oven, we’d really be talking.
