Nothing like a BOOK!

There is nothing like reading a book…especially when it is a YUMMY one.

I came across this new cookbook and simply had to share it with you! I love to cook but don’t always have the time as travel does not allow it. Hotel or on the road food are my only choices. However, I do like to cook and love the art of the process an the fun of the presentation.

Celebrity  award winning chef the one and only Rocco  DiSpirito has yet another new book. He is a master at them. I LOVE the name…Cook Your Butt Off!  Don’t you?

Let’s go back I first met Rocco on TV he had a reality show called The Restaurant.

I WAS HOOKED. I had to see him and taste his mamma’s meatballs I dined there several times. Sadly it closed but it did teach you a behind the scenes look at a Chef starting in the industry and ALL that goes into opening a restaurant. His food was AMAZING!!!

The book is an easy to use  and he shares some unique recipes. The book is focused on how to lose up to a pound a day with fat-burning foods. I always wondered what they really are. 

And if you like and need gluten-free recipes…you are going to be a happy foodie camper.

Allow me to tempt you with his: Apple,Lime and Basil Smash …is your mouth watering? It is only 37 calories per serving.

BLT Salad…I LOVE a good BLT do you?

Chicken Teriyaki with Sugar Snap Peas for a healthy take-out at home!

Chocolate Mint Thins his version of the old Girl Scout Cookies…easy and just 55 calories per serving. I am going to make them ASAP.

Guys and Gals…

Turn your kitchen into a gym,and burn calories with HIM as you cook.

Rocco’s looking ever so handsome,lean & mean and BETTER than ever.

GET HOOKED…get the book.

 

 

 

I’m back from NYC and on WordPress!

I’m sorry I have been up to my lips in beauty and FUN. Not in the sun but in the one and only Manhattan.My home, my playground,my work and time with my family.
It’s been on a whirlwind of beauty and fashion. one of the reasons I went to attend a beauty event for women and men in the cosmetics industry. I sniffed,sprayed,lathered and played in beauty.The cocktails,cosmetics and edible beauty cookies all tickled my tongue and made me swoon.There are so many new beauties out there!

I also was on a buying trip for my candy shoppe of fashion,beauty and unique gifts! Not an easy task! Especially since the snow came down,turned to slush and I got soaking wet and it was freezing.

I shopped until I dropped in the one and only Macy’s 34th Street Herald Square where I once worked I fell in love with the Marilyn Monroe fashions and tribute to all things Marilyn! See the windows I peeked at? TOO sexy! LOVE window shopping too.

Bloomingdales,Henri Bendel,Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue,the Container Store and more…New York City is far from a bore. I have so much more to share with you. Stay tuned.

Tomorrow I am a guest chef at the Salvation Army Celebrity Chef Tasting Luncheon here in Jacksonville Florida. Can’t wait to serve my chosen side dish to hundreds of people coming out for a beautiful cause.I love to cook and make-up! If you live in Jacksonville tickets are available at the door.

I’ll continue the above and so much more. Bear with me…I’m kinda exhausted~
