Confessions of a Potty-Mouthed Chef - Prologue
This is how it all started ... How to Cheat, Eat and Be Happy. Is it a memoir or a cookbook? Maybe a bit of both. She has already cheated in the bedroom, hoping that finally finding the love of her life will make all of the ensuing torment worthwhile. But when Vickie’s husband and her lover’s wife find their own love, that torment escalates on every front. From agony to ecstasy to emotional annihilation, the author battles on through a mid-life she never anticipated, learning to cheat in the kitchen, get honest in the bedroom and pursue a truly authentic life. Told in her own uniquely honest voice, Vickie shares cheating recipes, life hacks, true-life confessions and jagged, gut-wrenching revelations with equal candor. There are no good guys or bad guys here; just one tortured soul trying to figure out life and relationships, all the while cooking up a storm the easy way. Does love win in the end? Is online dating the answer? Can marriages be saved? Is forgiveness possible? Does a true “love of your life” really exist? Can cheating ever be justified? These sincere, unreserved and often hilarious confessions of a potty-mouthed chef will enlighten on every front. And if cooking with celebrity chefs intimidates the heck out of you, the cheater recipes will delight both you and your diners. How To Cheat, Eat and Be Happy serves up a feast for your heart, your soul and your belly.  website
