Last year I bought my husband a variety of small herb plants and an ivy and placed them in plant pots.  He works on the computer hours at a time. He also likes to cook when he is in the mood. So, my ploy to get him in the kitchen worked for me all year.He not only made us some spa water with fresh rosemary and lemons. He also uses the basil with Italian dishes and pretends be talian. The plants have grown into these eco healthy plants that purify the air from bad things that get in our home and keeps him healthy from all that computer blue light and what rays our tech tools give off.

Bonus they are so beautiful to look at and aromatic too.

Give him a few plants in a beautiful basket,wrap in a cookbook and a small kitchen utensil and spoon or whisk…

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.
