About Cook Your Marriage Happy

Finally, a book that explains and details what many of us have long known; cooking is a healing act and cooking therapy can be used to address real life issues. In specific sessions, through the use of individualized recipes, metaphor, and focus, the sous therapist will teach you how to use cooking as more than a way to make dinner, as a therapeutic tool to identify issues, prioritize needs, and crystallize your behaviors and patterns.

In Cook Your Marriage Happy the sous therapist will help you determine when to “stir the pot” when to “cool in the pan” and when to “chill for hours or overnight.”

Purposeful cooking can help to refresh the stale marriage, sweeten the sour relationship, or simply waken the sedated couple. Cooking Therapy addresses:

• Communication issues
• Disparity in desire
• Value conflict
• Family problems

And many more! But here’s a bonus: because cooking therapy is interactive, introspective, and tactile, you’ll also have fun! It’s a long way from your father’s therapy couch.
