About Us


The spice of life...


There are a lot of good things happening with ELMO’S FIRE SPICES at SATAN’S BREATH®.  Our spices are for the cooks who like to make things different while enhancing flavors.  Recipes don't have to be hot just because there are peppers in the dish.  Heat and flavor depend on the spice and quantity used.  Tastes can go from favorable to screaming hot with just a twitch of the wrist.  Satan’s Breath® products are made for direct dry seasoning or can be converted to a liquid marinade, all from the same container.  When you want to spice up your cooking, add Satan's Breath!

Chef Elmo spices began with his award winning Cajun Blend in 1953 and has now grown to over 185 different blends to match any flavor you like, from Cajun to Curry.

Satan's Breath blends are taste tested by customers visiting Chef Elmo's hot shop and kitchen and by Cousin's Bed and Breakfast guests before a new blend is made.  If the blend does not get rave reviews, the dish is remade until it is lip smacking good.

Come stay with us at Cousins Bed and Breakfast and be one of our samplers. When we sell spices, you buy spices with no MSG or filler!

Let's get busy in the kitchen...

Feel free to check out one of Chef Elmo's recipes on our recipe page.

We give free RECIPES with all of our custom spices.

The recipes are written mild for the average person, but can be adjusted hotter with just a twitch of the hand.

Please email us after cooking one of our dishes. Give us your opinion. We welcome your input. The results of your comments are used to improve our blends and insure satisfaction.
