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!, pub-2921814832298313, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

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


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