Great Food on the Plate, Great Sex, Great Playmate, NO?

“It’s your plate, not your mate.” That’s what authors Robert Fried, Ph.D. and Lynn Eldlen-Nezin, Ph.D., tell us in their book “Great Food, Great Sex, The Three Food Factors for Sexual Fitness.” Sexual turn-ons are 90% above the collar, but only if everything below the belt on your playmate is functioning with optimal potential.

We have various drugs that can help such as Viagra®, Cialis®, and Levitra®. However, eating for an incredible sex life requires an understanding of a chemical compound known as nitric oxide or NO for short. Scientists know for certain that NO is a common facilitator for many neurotransmitters involved in controlling the male erectile reaction to any stimulus. Note: nitric oxide [NO] is not to be confused with nitrous oxide [N2O], a general anesthetic, or with nitrogen dioxide [NO2] which is a poisonous pollutant.

Eating and living healthy are essential for optimal penile functions. Take advantage of the production of NO with a diet rich in whole grain, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and olive oil. Focus on unprocessed carbohydrates, healthy fats and lean protein or healthy protein sources such as fish.

Simply, the three “L’s” are the three main food categories that are great sources for NO along with excercise.

  1. Leafy greens, nitrogen rich vegetables and beans.
  2. Lean meat, fish, soybeans, nuts and legumes.
  3. Lots of bright colors in fruits, tea, olive oil and, of course, an occasional glass of red wine and moderate amounts of dark chocolate!

Two of the greatest pleasures in life are sex and food. Nothing else comes close. Engage in a better daily sex diet with great food on the plate and enjoy mind-blowing great sex! Don’t forget to enjoy a glass of red wine and chocolate with your playmate, too! Use food to enhance sex and visit Scarlett Skillet for more about penile preservation and visual stimulation.

Farm Bread Salad In A Skillet

JD makes his own farm bread, a mild sourdough, with a hard crust and a chewy texture inside. I always imagine sitting around a French farmhouse table waiting for dinner when the aroma of his bread fills the house. Save yourself time and purchase a loaf at your local bakery and enjoy this great skillet dish!

Inspired with a classic bread salad from that uses a skillet, sliced garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes and a splash of aged balsamic with fresh oregano, JD creates an exquisitely simple dinner entrée. This is a perfect way to showcase tomatoes and let your creativity sore. For extra texture and substance, JD often changes it up with the addition of pine nuts, olives, fresh mini-mozzarella balls, or crispy bacon!

Human Performance Inspirationalist & A Child with Special Needs

As a Human Performance Inspirationalist, I inspire others to exceed their personal expectations. Often times I must do this through example. In our ever-changing world there are trigger-points that make us stop and take inventory of ourselves and of our lives. Mine came one day when I held a child with special needs in my arms.

The baby was lethargic and scored poorly on the Apgar, but the nurses tried to act optimistically. I had spent enough time with babies to realize there was something disturbingly unusual about the one in my arms. This precious child was unresponsive, entirely too still and flaccid.

I’ll always remember the drive home from the doctor’s office the day I learned this special child in my life was diagnosed with “floppy baby syndrome”, or hypotonia, a state of low muscle tone. The underlying cause and the child’s future is a mystery still.

We all have come to grips with the fact that this perfect angel will not be physically perfect, and we face lifelong challenges. There is no looking backward or forward, we simply deal with one day at a time; one moment at a time. Daily expectations shift from “normal” to “special”, and my heart secretly aches watching moms’ of special needs child struggle through the cycles of life!

My blogging experience has made my life more complete. My intentions are for this blog to help when the day comes the Lord calls us home, and there is no one to care for a special needs child. Your support is greatly appreciated! Visit Scarlett Skillet E-Store and help me make a family, with a child with special needs, live without too many worries. The incredible can happen with your support!

Scarlett Skillet™ is a Forum for Culinary Arts, Masculine Masterpieces, & Ideas. A place where food and sex appetites are brought together harmoniously, a unique production that entertains inspires, and more importantly will make a difference for a child with special needs!

Call it tumbled nature, call it depraved, call it outrageous, but it is none-the-less a real example of a Human Performance Inspirationalist loving a child and wanting their life to be incredible – regardless of challenges!

God Bless and Thank You!

Sugar-Free Sorbet With Yonanas

JD and I are ice cream addicts but we want to reduce our intake of refined sugar calories and carbs. As a nutrition coach, JD is always wanting us our diets to include more fruit. Now, we make our own 100% fruit soft serve “sorbet” in a minute—without added sugar—thanks to the Yonanas Frozen Treat Maker. Yonanas almost instantly transforms your favorite fruits—banana, berries, mango, pineapple, the whole fruit department—into a silky-smooth, healthful frozen confection. This Human Performance Inspirationalist likes that everything but the motor portion goes right into the dishwasher!

If you can’t wait another moment to order a Yonanas machine, head to Scarlett Skillet’s Store here!

Skillet Artisan Fire Oven Pizza

JD and I love old-world style pizza! We found an incredible addition to our outdoor living kitchen at Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. A gas-fired outdoor pizza oven updated in stainless steel with individually controlled deck and ceiling burners. My sexy man cooking pizza concoctions, with the flavors of fall in mind, ignite all my appetites viewing him, pizza and flames!

Skillet Pasta Carbonara

JD is such a sexy man cooking pasta alla carbonara! I love it in its many forms and variations. Luscious and wonderfully indulgent, it takes him as long to prepare as it does for the pasta to cook. Simple, high quality ingredients make all the difference and when you add a pinch of nutmeg the fans rave. JD uses a recipe at Simply Delicious as his base and let’s his imagination soar with his scarlett skillet in hand.

Skillet Soup with Wild Mushroom & Coconut

Note: Scarlett Skillet™ warns some wild mushrooms are poisonous, and they can easily resemble edible species. Ingesting them can make you ill or kill you! It is your responsibility to identify any wild food with 100% certainty before consuming said product. Again, we assume no responsibility or liability for any ill effects that result from visitors to Scarlett Skillet™ eating wild mushrooms or plants!

In addition, allergies to mushrooms are rare, but some people do find them hard to digest. Learn more about the health-promoting properties of mushrooms at  JD finds it a great source for information about gourmet edible mushrooms, as well as dried and extracts.

Inspired by The Ardent Epicure, JD took his skillet in hand and prepared Chilled Wild Mushroom & Coconut Soup. Click here for recipe source and home to the images. The photography, alone, is appetizing, to even a non-foodie!


Many cultures have considered mushrooms the source for super-human strength and sex drive. However, the aphrodisiac properties are still being debated, but JD is my Popeye between the sheets after we enjoy this soup with a Grilled Provolone & Veggie Basil Sandwich.


Figs, Coffee, Vanilla, Cheese and Pizzelle’s – The Incredible Happens

Figs, packed with potassium, manganese, and antioxidants, this superpower fruit helps keep your immune system strong. I love how a man’s back-view resembles a fig turned upside down. Every time JD is shirtless and working with our fig tree, my insides stir with passion.

JD adopted an idea he found at “Recipe Doodle” and inspired by their image; he creates his Vanilla Coffee Bean & Almond Figs. Simply delicious! Cut a slit from stem to end in the side of 2 dozen dried figs, or so. Do not cut all the way through!  Stir together 4 ounces of softened cream cheese, 3 teaspoons of powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 6 ground coffee beans. Evenly fill each fig with this mixture, insert 1 roasted salted almond to disappear into cheese mixture, and press figs to secure filling. Bon Appetite!

Mixing these bite-sized morsels with a Fig and Camembert Cheese appetizer on a platter, JD is the envy of most dinner parties.  Believe or not, they are incredibly tasty! Simply create irregular pieces of broken vanilla-flavored pizzelle’s. Typically 3 per pizzelle. Uniformity is not a concern.  Place some Camembert Cheese on top of one piece, top with sliced dried figs and cap with another pizzelle piece.  Have fun and wait for the sounds of raving fans.

Three-Ingredient Reese’s Truffles
