Thank you Google analytics for letting me know that men are reading! Guys. Chocolate. It’s important. Do you ever surprise the special lady in your life with an unexpected gift of chocolate? Ladies, does your guy love chocolate too?
For me, chocolate from my lover is like a gift from heaven. If it’s from my husband Joe, and it’s the kind that I love most, I really do feel the LOVE!
We all know how chocolate works, right?
“If you’re one of these individuals who gets a nice mood boost whenever you sink your teeth into a bar of pure, unadulterated chocolate, it is not happenstance.
There’s actually a chemical reason called anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced in the brain that temporarily blocks feelings of pain and depression.
I’ve just returned home from two weeks in Bali and a quick stop in Tokyo!
Both Destinations were absolutely wonderful and oh so delicious. My husband Joe and I LOVE to travel to exotic destinations and enjoy all of the local food. Needless to say, one thing we did a lot of during this romantic getaway was eat. This is one piece of travel that could certainly send things south (ironically, growing up in Wisconsin has always made me want to head south). The best way to feel good and enjoy every moment fully is to pay attention to what goes in your mouth.
Asian food is my favorite…
without a shadow of a doubt. More specifically, Japanese. Balinese is a close runner-up.…
On Sundays I feel passionate romance in a very bright, public setting. Fresh aroma of sweet fruits and organic, local fare, smiling faces and sun shining. Mmmm how I love the FARMER’S MARKET! My husband and I love going to the Sunday Farmer’s Market! Don’t worry…If you’re living somewhere with snowy winters, you can always re-create the vibe in the produce section! As we walk-feeling the warm embrace of the sun, we slowly scan the offerings and let the vibrant colors draw us in closer. Joe will pick up a tomato, and make eye contact with me before he gives the delicate plump fruit a smooch! He loves to kiss his food-have I mentioned this before?! We walk hand in hand, in gratitude that these incredible people are sharing such gifts!…
Spoon to lips. Incoming! Textures and flavors ignite the senses. Deep, slow inhale with closed eyes and we’re in orgasmic food bliss.
I love this concept of “orgasmic food!” It really caught my attention when my friend, the beautiful Miss Jaiya-an internationally recognized sexologist-used these words to describe the way we eat.
Yesterday, my husband and I had dinner at this adorable quaint little place near our home; that prides themselves on using organic, local, sustainable fare (orgasmic food). The food is delicious and the quality is unmistakable. It was so incredibly tasty that after I took a moment in gratitude, and blessed my meal-as I do each time-we literally dove in. It only took a few bites for me to realize I wasn’t really enjoying the food. …
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. …
