Book Description:

One Guy's Guide to Saving the Day with Food

For the record, this cookbook was Jillian's idea. So was the hashtag, #hotguycooks. She thought I should share my mad cooking skills with the world. Well, maybe not the whole world, but people like me who have partners with an aversion to kitchens. We can't let them starve, can we?

For those of you who don't know me, when I first met Jillian all she had in her fridge was a jug of water, a jar of mustard and a half loaf of bread. Her freezer was empty except for an old bag of ice. I thought, “Damn, what does this woman eat?” Now I'm the only thing standing between real food and Jillian living on a steady diet of yogurt, cold cereal, and chocolate.

This isn't your ordinary cookbook. It's more like a medley of favorite recipes, some seasonal, all done Raine-style. Check 'em out. I skew toward organic when it comes to ingredients, and where I can, I substitute a healthy option. #sorrynotsorry. Most of my recipes come with tips, advice, and a small slice of my life with Jillian. The goal: to make
you look like a culinary rock star to your significant other. So, come on, step inside the Roost. Poke around and see what's cooking. Pull up a chair and hang out. The kitchen's open.
