Cooking a Wealth Building Strategy


In late 2008 when I was putting the finishing touches on The Cook-a-Palooza Experience I was at a neighbor’s house and met a friend of theirs who was a financial planner. She inquired about my book and I explained it was about matching song suggestions with recipes to make cooking more approachable and fun. After hearing my concept she mentioned that she also wanted to write a cookbook. Her idea was to include financial advice with every recipe.

This was all before the economy went down the crapper and we discovered that one of the biggest causes was the mismanagment of personal finances. Maybe she was onto something. Going out for dinner, take-out and prepared meals can add up quickly and be a real drain on your disposable income.

I think the tagline for her book should be "Increase your wealth by cooking your way to good health"...what do you think?
