Who is Cayenne Diane?
That’s me! Thanks so much for your interest in my site. First off, I must tell you I want to live in a world filled with more people that try their hand at backyard or container gardens, peppers plants that never fail and a force field around my pepper plants that keep those pesky hook worm caterpillars away!
When not creating new content for Cayenne Diane, my other hobbies include growing hot peppers, cooking, giving my dogs belly rubs, trying to convince my cat not to bring that lizard into the house, and graphic design.
What about the name? My husband came up with the Cayenne Diane name for me because I use a LOT of spice in my cooking and have always had a love for hot peppers. Other note, I had a pet tarantula named Cayenne a few years back.
Spicy influences: I grew up in the southwest, so Tex-Mex, spicy food and peppers were the norm for most meals. As I’ve grown older, my love for all spicy cuisines has expanded. REALLY spicy Thai food has become one of my weekly staples.
How the site came to be: The Cayenne Diane website is a labor of love. I was driven to create the site because I couldn’t find a great looking, easy to use site, that provided the information that I was searching for, so I built it. I’ve learned so much more about peppers in the process. I created the first version of the Cayenne Diane site back in mid 2012. I’d consider where it is today version 4.0. It’s come a long way! Myself and my husband are constantly working to improve the site and provide even more great information about hot peppers and fiery foods.
With over 3000 hot peppers in the world, tons of amazing spicy recipes, and an endless number of hot sauces, I’m aware that my site is only scratching the surface, but I’m always discovering and adding more info, so stay tuned! Subscribe to my ‘Spicy Bite’ newsletter to stay up to date!
