Let me start off by clarifying this title – I do not think I am “too hot to handle” by any means. Haha. It is in reference to my shirt (and a funny comment made about it), and my odd obsession with putting Sriracha on everything I eat.

I wear this shirt a lot. This shirt is the warm weather equivalent of my Great Gatsby sweatshirt. It’s comfortable, it’s soft, it’s quirky and people are always making comments when I wear it. For example, I wore this on my last flight..and as I was coming through the body scanner the lady TSA agent says, “Mmm, mmm look at this girl. She thinks she’s too hot to handle!” Bahaha. I had no idea how to react to that, other than to laugh. And there have been far too many wonderful comments before that one.

I haven’t always been the world’s greatest cook, so drowning any negative flavors out of my entrees with a hot sauce – works for me! I also really enjoy spicy food. So, Sriracha is my indeed my flavoring of choice. I love putting it on my eggs in the morning. Yum! And now that I have an actual stove again, I’ve found a lot of recipes dedicated to this sauce. In fact, ModCloth has an entire book dedicated to it! (Christmas ideas right here!)

I don’t own this cookbook (yet), but I have found some Sriracha recipes on Pinterest that I really enjoy making. My absolute favorite is Sriracha chicken. It is so darn tasty, and not terribly crazy to make. It takes a little over an hour to get it all done, and it’s a bit putsy, because you have to constantly be stirring the sauce…so it doesn’t clump and stick to the bottom of the pan. But other than that, this recipe is quite easy to make and it is super tasty. It’s from Creme de la Crumb, click here to see it.

Are there any other Sriracha lovers out there? Let me know in the comments! Or if not, what’s your odd flavoring of choice?

P.S. In case you don’t follow me on Instagram, I am on vacation in Cape Cod this week, and then Boston for the weekend. Sorry for not being responsive to comments on here or on social media – and I swear I will catch up on everyone’s blog posts when I get home this weekend. I hope you are all having a great week! (I had this post prepared before I left, all my trip photos will be up next week.)

    Love this post! My husband loves hot sauce but it’s not for me. I’m pretty picky but I do love garlic!

      Thank you, Kathy! I’m a big fan of garlic, too. My husband nearly died when we first lived together and he had to eat all my super garlicky and spicy cooking lol.

    Hahaha ur too fricken cute! I never use to like spicy food, it wasn’t until this year that I started ordering spicy tuna roll. Weird how ur taste changes overtime. This shirt is so cool and I love how ur posts always keep me coming back for more. You look gorgeous my dear. Happy Wed!!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha! Thanks, Ela! And I know – it’s crazy! I actually hated spicy food up until about 5-6 years ago – and now the hotter the better. And you are far too kind! Thank you for the lovely comment!

  3. Lauren Blair says:

    Haha, great shirt. I put that, or any hot sauce really, in almost everything that I cook that I have to boil (soups, rice, lentils, etc). It just adds more flavor and I prefer things spicy! Great outfit too! Understandable about being slow with comments, we’ve all been there 😉

      Wohoo! Another spicy food lover! And thank you, Lauren! 🙂

  4. If there was one person that could make a sriracha bottle look stylish, it’s definitely you. And hot is so an understatement, you look ridiculously gorg and your hair is perfect!

      Bahaha – you are far too kind, Amanda! My husband thought I was nuts..but I didn’t think I would ever have another opportunity to use a sriracha bottle as a prop! 😉 And thank you again – I was really struggling with my hairdo that day. Haha. So that is a wonderful compliment! 🙂

  5. Haha! That shirt is so cute! I think it would be fun to wear anywhere! That is too funny about the comments even from a TSA agent! I love the way you wore it with those cute shorts! I think this look is adorable!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw thank you so much, Rebecca! And haha..you know it’s a good shirt when even the TSA agents have to make comments! 😉
