How many years in a row have you made the same new year’s resolution? If you’re making the same resolution because you haven’t gotten what you were shooting for, I have a challenge for you. It can’t hurt to have an additional new year’s intention.
Do you and your lover speak the same food language? Can you whip up a delicious meal in the kitchen together? Do you generally choose the same item on a menu at a restaurant? Do you come home from the grocery store with all of the divine, colorful produce that your lover wanted (without them even having to ask for it)? Speaking the same food language means that you can choose and chew together harmoniously.…
Even though I totally love magazines, I currently do not receive any subscriptions. What’s perfect is the opportunity I have to read my favorite magazines every time I travel. They are conveniently tucked right in the seat back pocket in front of me. I truly love inflight magazines. They usually have unique articles about global cuisine, and exotic destinations-two things I can’t get enough of.
On our way to Bali this past summer, the words, “sex” and “drugs” caught my attention on the bottom right corner of United’s Hemispheres magazine. I don’t see these two words often while browsing these publications, so I had to read on (wouldn’t you)?
After I read the very short two paragraph blurb, I nudged my husband Joe and gave him an enthusiastic look while I pointed to the article.…
When you’re feeling amazing inside and out, how does that affect your relationship? Conversely, how does a groggy, bloated, tired day affect your relationship? One thing that is incredibly important in my relationship is feeling really great when we’re together. You too, right? It’s so much easier to have an outstanding relationship-with anyone-when you feel so damn good that nothing can get you down.
What makes me feel that good? Sunshine and tasty food are pretty high ranking on my list. This week I’m in beautiful Hawaii, and my love, Joe is back home in California.
Even when we’re apart for a short trip like this; less than a week, we can connect through food.
I’ve certainly shared that one of our favorite things to do together is find delicious food while traveling around exotic destinations.…
…blindfold them, rip all of their clothes off, lead them into the kitchen and make passionate love to them on the floor. The END. Just kidding.
This is actually a true story of two good friends of mine. A few nights ago, my husband Joe and I went out for an impromptu double date with our good friends. They’re an amazing couple that I am totally inspired by. I really appreciate the dynamic of their relationship. However, I was caught a bit off guard when Sara (names changed for privacy) mentioned that she really does not like to cook. Her husband Tom followed this by saying something like, I’ve found that if I do all of the cooking, she and I are both happier.…
Last weekend, my husband, Joe and I participated in a Tantric kissing workshop led by the highly skilled Divine Kika. Who could resist a beautiful Brazilian Goddess leading you through intimate practices with your beloved? Well, Joe and I couldn’t. One look at the workshop through a Facebook event page had us hooked. First, I will let you know that it was absolutely wonderful and certainly one of the best date nights that we’ve ever had. It was unique, we were in the company of conscious couples, and we were learning something new — learning something that would enhance our relationship; everything about it was just perfect.
I’d love for you to get a vision of the setting for this perfect evening.…
My dear friend, iX-chel Sandivel is a truly driven individual and record breaking athlete. In her competitive running days, she nationally ranked in the 10,000 meters, and placed 11th at the NCAA II Track & Field Championships. She is a former Nike elite runner for “The Janes.” Ix-Chel is now a women’s empowerment coach.
I met iX-Chel in an unsuspecting place and felt an instant connection. She is consistently cultivating her skills and is truly a well-rounded teacher. I love learning from her and we have so much fun together.
Our unsuspecting meeting place was a nail salon in Las Vegas. Both iX-Chel and I visit nail salons once in a blue moon. To add another silly twist to this scenario-my husband came to pick me up at the salon and was waiting for a few minutes near all of the glossy fashion magazines (gotta love him)! …
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Have you decided on your New Year’s “resolution” yet? Ready to try something new and bold this year? No need to change your resolution, it’s just linguistics. Let’s make an
1. a thing intended; an aim or plan.
2. an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.
: the act of finding an answer or solution to
a conflict, problem, etc. : the act of resolving something
: an answer or solution to something
We all associate something with the word, resolution. Unless you’ve been successful 100% of the time, you’ve got nothing to lose in trying on a new idea 😉
Team work makes the dream work. …
Jenny L.: “Great Blog! I’m married to a chef and would love to see you write about getting your partner on board with revamping the kitchen.”
Lana: “Love it! Totally part of the plan…stay tuned! I’ll certainly zero in on this!”
Jenny L.: “Cool. Because I’m gluten and dairy free and more…he can eat what he wants and thinks organic “isn’t worth it””
This is the good stuff. This is where food gets fun. When we can make LOVE in the kitchen.
What better way to dive in, then sharing my own journey? My own story of how love began in the kitchen. There’s a whole wild ride that took me to South Jersey and to the doorstep of a man’s home who is now my husband. …
