#MotivationMonday Meets #ManCandy

I am just back from the Fall in Love with New England Conference and I had a blast. I’ll share some photos later in the week!

Today I have with me my friend LG O’Connor who is providing an excellent mix of Motivation meeting Man Candy. How did I get to that? Well, lots of us need motivation to get cooking and what better way to inspire us than Man Candy in the kitchen? LOL!

So here is some info on my friend’s latest project: A recipe book by the hero of her novel, Caught up in RAINE!

Please welcome LG O’Connor and Raine!

Recipes from Raine’s Roost
“One Guy’s Guide to Saving the Day with Food”

I’m super excited to announce the release of the Recipes from Raine’s Roost color cookbook on October 24th! This book is based on Raine’s guest run on USA TODAY’s Happy Ever After blog.
Super Cool Offer!

I released the Kindle version of Recipes from Raine’s Roost TODAY (October 16th) for a pre-launch price of $0.99 cents now through the October 24th launch date just for this offer. (Regular Retail price $2.99).

That’s it! One of my friends is buying 10 of them to use as gifts for the Holidays! Makes an especially nice gift for that special someone who tends to set off the fire alarm when anywhere near a kitchen…
ORDER NOW: https://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Raines-Jillians-Kitchen-Caught-ebook/dp/B0764LQQQC/ 

Book Description:
For the record, this cookbook was Jillian’s idea. So was the hashtag, #hotguycooks. She thought I should share my mad cooking skills with the world. Well, maybe not the whole world, but people like me who have partners with an aversion to kitchens. We can’t let them starve, can we?

For those of you who don’t know me, when I first met Jillian all she had in her fridge was a jug of water, a jar of mustard and a half loaf of bread. Her freezer was empty except for an old bag of ice. I thought, “Damn, what does this woman eat?” Now I’m the only thing standing between real food and Jillian living on a steady diet of yogurt, cold cereal, and chocolate.

This isn’t your ordinary cookbook. It’s more like a medley of favorite recipes, some seasonal, all done Raine-style. Check ’em out. I skew toward organic when it comes to ingredients, and where I can, I substitute a healthy option. #sorrynotsorry. Most of my recipes come with tips, advice, and a small slice of my life with Jillian. The goal: to make you look like a culinary rock star to your significant other. So, come on, step inside the Roost. Poke around and see what’s cooking. Pull up a chair and hang out. The kitchen’s open.

#FunFriday & #Giveaway – Running of the Bull . . . Dogs that Is!

It’s that time of year for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. You’ve probably seen news stories about people being gored or injured as they try to outrun the large bulls on narrow Spanish streets. The practice began when cattle had to be transported from one location to another and local youths would run and dodge in front of them to show how brave they were.

But now, there is another fearful animal to dodge: the bulldogs. This commercial from Geico is hysterical! Click here if you cannot see the Geico Running of the Bulldogs commercial below.

It’s a rainy morning here in NYC, but it can dim how excited I am about the upcoming Labor Day weekend, a fabulous giveaway that I’m having with some friends and the memories of an awesome anniversary trip to Hawaii! So first, this throwback to that trip! This photo always reminds me of the serene nights we spent on Maui during our anniversary trip.
