I hope you’re all well and settling into 2010. It’s crazy how quickly the New Year gets underway. This month has been extra busy and I’ve joined forces with renowned fitness trainer Jillian Michaels and started production for NBC’s new show ‘Losing It with Jillian Michaels’. The show sees Jillian and I venture across the country and into people’s homes to shake up their lives by teaching them how to cook and eat healthily and whip them into tip top shape. It’s going to be a hoot!
I’m also making a quick trip to my beloved Australia later in the month before heading over to Taiwan to cook a series of gourmet dinners. I can’t wait! It’s safe to say though, that I will be living out of my suitcase for the next few weeks!
Of course I can’t forget to mention that it’s Valentine’s Day this coming weekend, which is the perfect excuse to stay in and surprise your sweetheart with a home-cooked meal. It doesn’t have to be too fussy or overly complicated to make a good impression, remember it’s always the thought that counts. I’m a big believer that making a little effort and taking the time to prepare a meal for someone is one of the most special gifts.
So, to really get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day this year I’ve included some delicious recipes for you to try at home which of course include champagne and chocolate! As for me, I’ll be back home for Valentine’s Day and I'm planning to cook my mum a yummy lunch. She’s always been my sweetheart!
Enjoy and bon appétit!
