I’d like to welcome back Sam Peter’s as a guest poster, her granola clusters recipe was a hit with everyone, we loved her Banana Bread Pancakes and now she’s talking about all things “spicy” in the kitchen! Enjoy! ~ Magpie
Many foods are said to have aphrodisiac qualities. Few studies have been done to corroborate many of the suggestions and the truth is much of it may merely be mind over matter. The mind is the body’s largest sex organ after all, but let’s say the way to his heart really is through his stomach. With a little imagination and a creative presentation these fun flirtatious goodies can make him go bananas for you.
By the way, if whipping things up in the kitchen isn’t your thing, don’t worry about it, there are plenty of places you can find on-line or in the phone book that will be happy to make them for you.
Oyster Seaside Salad
With spring upon us it’s time for spring and summer salads. Why not start your next romantic evening at home by preparing and serving a Seaside Salad made with oyster? Everyone knows oysters are an aphrodisiac, what everyone doesn’t quite know is why.
This one is probably best prepared at home and should be accompanied by a little candle light, soft sexy music, and of course a bottle of red wine, which is also said to be an aphrodisiac.
Sweet and Sexy Cupcakes
Cupcakes yum! Who doesn’t like cupcakes right? Both chocolate and nuts are said to have aphrodisiac properties. Nuts, like oysters are rich in zinc. Although Zinc hasn’t been proven to be a sexual stimulant, on paper chemically it makes sense therefor many consider it to be one.
Chocolate on the other hand is proven to deliver a dose of phenylethylamine (PEA) which the brain responds to the same as it would an amphetamine by releasing both of the feel good hormones norepinephrine and dopamine.
Order (or make) some cupcakes and tuck them into his lunch or have them delivered at work. Don’t forget to add a sexy little love note to get his mind racing all day. You can be sure he will be thinking of you while that butter-cream icing melts on his tongue.
Psst, don’t forget to save a couple for later!
Maybe It’s You?
Maybe your man is always raring to go and instead it’s you who seems to need a swift kick in the get-a-long to get going? No worries, the kitchen has a spade up its sleeve just for you. Well maybe not a spade, but how about a stalk of celery?
Is it Freudian? Who knows. What is known is that celery contains androsterone which is a hormone men produce naturally. This is one of the things that causes sexual arousal in women, so eat up ladies! There’s nothing wrong with hedging your bet. Nibble some peanut butter and celery while you’re preparing those oysters.
The mere act of setting the scene thinking about all the things you are doing will have your own mind racing all day. By time dinner is served the two of you will be staring hungrily into each other’s eyes.
