It’s that time of the year and love is in the air, hopefully. Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest on “The 504” for a cooking segment about cooking for your boo! My inspiration was to use foods known as aphrodisiacs. That started a wonderful conversation during the show to say the least. Me personally, I believe that food is a natural aphrodisiac especially when it’s good food like the two recipes below. I hope you enjoy the Arugula and Pomegranate Salad and the Puppy Drum with Pesto Chili Pasta. You can definitely use your favorite fish in place of the Puppy Drum. I had to take some quick photos before the crew destroyed the food and had to get ready for my interview segment. Hope you enjoy!

Here’s some information on what makes arugula, pomegranate and basil aphrodisiacs.

 

Here’s a behind the scenes video from yesterday’s show.
