The Get 'Em Girls' Guide to the Power of Cuisine

Perfect Recipes for Spicing Up Your Love Life

About The Book

In Life, Get ' Em Girls Always Go After What They Want...

You know a Get 'Em Girl when you see one. She's got it together: great job, nice friends, and plenty of style. But when it comes to love, not all Get 'Em Girls have it figured out.

While some may think it's a cliché, maybe the way to a lover's heart is still through his stomach. But who has time to be chained to a stove? Just like having an extra job skill can help you get hired, someone willing to invest a little time and energy into a relationship definitely stands out in a crowded dating field.

The Get 'Em Girls' Guide to the Power of Cuisine features over 120 easy and delicious recipes that reflect the authors' southern-girl-in-the-big-city upbringings and will complement every stage of a growing relationship:
  • "Grown 'n' Sexy" desserts meant for sharing
  • The first "Morning After" Breakfast
  • The "Bring Him Back" Chicken Soup when he's sick
  • "Meet the Parents" Carrot Cake and much more!

Whether planning an intimate dinner for two or a down-home feast reminiscent of Mama's Sunday dinner, The Get 'Em Girls' Guide to the Power of Cuisine is filled with helpful tips, from stocking the pantry, to selecting wine, and even dating advice!

Cooking for a lover can be more meaningful (and cheaper) than dining out. But this is about more than just the food: it's about women investing in themselves and in their relationships. For all the women who aren't afraid to go after what they want, The Get 'Em Girls' Guide to the Power of Cuisine is a must-have in their kitchens!
