A new singer shares her insights on how to keep your man warm and well-fed.
Chef Nikki Shaw: Anyone who knows me knows that I'm constantly in search of great food, fun, and adventure! There's a HOT new kid on the block in the music world, and she feels the same way. Her name is Melanie Fiona, and she writes soulful songs with smooth urban beats about real-life situations. Her brand-new CD, entitled "The Bridge," is guaranteed to get the party started! While we listened to her hit single "Give It To Me Right," she shared her personal secrets to a successful relationship.
Of course, Melanie mentioned that an occasional home-cooked meal can always seal the deal. You know what they say: "the fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Her Canadian roots remind me of one of Canada's greatest culinary claims to fame -- pure maple syrup. Knock his socks off with Sunday brunch -- download this recipe for Precocious Croissant French Toast, served with warm maple syrup.
Melanie also said it's important to always pay attention to your partner -- make a mental note of his likes and dislikes. Finally, try to "keep it sexy" as often as possible. Hopefully your guy will appreciate your effort and return the favor.
"NIK TIP": Keep an assortment of good music on hand when entertaining. Whether you have a party for 1 or 100, the right music can set the mood and definitely enhance any situation.
In this bitter economy, I'll show you how to make life sweet right at home.
