Achieving goals comes down realizing you are capable of anything with enough effort, planning and luck. That is especially true when it comes to banging. Too many suckers assume they are incapable of pulling some prime tail because they’re not rich or handsome or funny. Those are all excuses that make you part of the beta majority. Be bold! I approach everything from my career to my food to my women with bravado and swagger. Fuck the critics (I have many) who say it’s better to give up and accept the 2nd place fruit basket! Take this recipe. I felt like I hit my culinary creativity wall the other night. A new girl was en route to my house and I hadn’t figured out yet how to knock her socks (and panties) off with my grub. I’m not about to let me rep as Mr. Cook To Bang suffer so I went big. I grabbed random ingredients to create what my instincts were telling me would be outstanding. It was the right call. My date had never eaten anything like it. The spicy, sweet combination got her sweating long before I closed the deal. She was incapable of saying no.

Ingredients (serves 4):
1. ½ cup maple syrup
2. 2 dashes salt
3. 2 dashes black pepper
4. 3 tbsp CALIVIRGIN olive oil
5. 1 yellow squash
6. 1 zucchini
7. 1 Anaheim CHILI chopped finely
8. 3 garlic cloves sliced thinly
9. 1 handful cilantro chopped finely
Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C. Slice the ends off the yellow squash and zucchini and cut lengthwise in long, thin strips.
Grease a large baking pan with olive oil. Lay down the flavor with the garlic and chilies. Place the squash strips, varying them up. Salt and pepper them, crown with cilantro and smother it all with maple syrup.
Throw the pan in the oven and cook until the squashes soften and absorb all the flavor (approx 30 min). Place the squash on a platter and pour the sauce from the pan over.
