When I think of the life my husband and I have carved out for ourselves, I can’t help but think of how different it is from anything I could have imagined when we first started out on this journey together. Nearly 14 years of marriage has left us with layers of experiences, each one distinct but vital pieces of this puzzle we are putting together.

There are those moments that are easy, where you don’t have to think, and it’s almost automatic. And there’s the unexpected layers, those twists and turns that as surprising as they were at first, life now couldn’t – or shouldn’t – be any other way.

Fatherhood has suited him. He has been devoted, he has been our rock. And I like to think he is the spicy to my sweet – we balance one another out. In parenthood, and in life.

Speaking of spicy – as we get older together, the more our tolerance to heat increases, and the more we desire more kick to our food. Now that grilling season is in full swing, I have been craving the perfect topping for all those burgers and hot dogs – caramelized onions.

But not just any caramelized onions! Sriracha Caramelized Onions – with heat to go with the layers of flavor already in place – something to go with the juicy burger, the pepper jack cheese, the tangy pickles, the thick cut tomato – something to add spicy to the sweet. Burgers will never be the same.

    I know two people in my family who are going to love you for this recipe Liren.  Personally, I’m a wimp when it comes to heat. Actually, I’ve never even tried Sriracha.  But these onions!!!   They have me tempted and might just be the perfect way to get my feet wet.

    Just wondering, how do the TOMATOES called for in the ingredient list magically turn into onions?  Is that the magic of Sriracha?

      Sriracha is definitely magical but not that magical! Can’t believe I typed that. There’s a reason why I normally don’t write late at night! Fixed the ingredient list :)
