Cooking with The Kitchen Alchemist

Cooking with The Kitchen Alchemist

In a moment of spontaneity yesterday morning, my friend good friend Beverly and I decided to make some recipes from Frances Castelli’s international bestseller, The Kitchen Alchemist: How I Became My Own Food Scientist So My Kids Could Thrive with Anaphylactic Food Allergies.

Once we agreed on a menu, Bev thought it would be fun to invite two other friends to dinner.

“Great, then we can capture their reactions on video!” I enthused.

We made a list of ingredients for the three recipes we selected, then set off to do our errands, not realizing it would take us hours to make all the stops we needed to make for culinary and personal purposes.

By the time we got back to Bev’s kitchen, it was 3:30 PM. We got busy prepping, cooking, and baking.

How did we do?

The Kitchen Alchemist Is Now Available on Amazon!

The Kitchen Alchemist is now available on Amazon – congratulations to first-time and BESTSELLING author Frances Castelli on a remarkable achievement! The book has already garnered ten 5-star reviews like these:

“Frances Castelli approaches an important subject with humor and grace. I loved that she included recipes in the book and can’t wait to try them. Food allergies are many times disregarded as “fads” or “trends” by people who have never experienced them. As someone who has experienced food allergies, I appreciate the knowledge and loving approach to the subject in this book. More, Frances, more!!!”

“Frances Castelli writes from the heart. Dealing with a dry subject she injects her personality and bold reveals of her life and loves. While you learn from her research and discoveries, sit back and enjoy her personality and genuine concern for folks dealing with the trials and tribulations of allergy. I’m one (Soy caused me years of misery until uncovered) and really appreciate her work. Well done, Frances!”

“This book shows how much love and devotion this mother & father had for their kids! I love how you feel like you are in their shoes. Hearing what they went through with each child. Knowing the mom did so much to make sure her kids were still being kids! I think it’s great that each memeber of the family is a part of this book, in a big way! Well written! Heart warming!”

Read all reviews, preview and purchase The Kitchen Alchemist: How I Became My Own Food Scientist So My Kids Could Thrive with Anaphylactic Food Allergies on Amazon.com. The book is available in Kindle and paperback.

It was a pleasure to help Frances bring her important story to the marketplace and I look forward to the positive feedback she is sure to receive from people all over the world who are dealing with food allergies. She will be my guest on Your Book Your Brand Your Business in December. I will share more as we get closer to the date.

Home Grown Legacy: Embodying the Apron in the Kickass World of Retail

I have the pleasure of collaborating with Erik Dardas on his forthcoming book, Home Grown Legacy: Embodying the Apron in the Kickass World of Retail, scheduled for release in late 2018/early 2019:

How does a “hard-charger” who once got himself demoted recover to achieve remarkable success with the world’s most iconic home improvement retailer? In Home Grown Legacy: Embodying the Apron in the Kickass World of Retail, 33-year Home Depot veteran Erik Dardas offers readers a no-holds-barred account of his own screw-ups, successes and learnings. Struggling with the daily pressure to honor the legacy of his own father as well as company founders Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank, the Mike Rowe of the retail industry boldly shares the down, dirty, and often shocking details of dealing with the public, managing employees, and controlling one’s own behavior.

Along with merchandise, human nature is on full display for better or for worse, but as Dardas relates from his own experience, you have a choice in both retail and life: you can either allow its complexities to break you or build you into a better human being. In the tradition of Built from Scratch: How a Couple of Regular Guys Grew the Home Depot from Nothing to $30 Billion, this motivational book celebrates the timeless values of work ethic, integrity, and leadership – qualities that, in today’s rapidly evolving business climate, all participants – whether new to the workforce or seasoned members of management – could greatly benefit from.

Many thanks to cover designer Matt Margolis of Logotecture.com for the excellent design and to Erik for entrusting me to help him write his story. Stay tuned for details about the book’s release as we move through the many stages of ghostwriting.
