How To Stop Your Relationship from Getting Dill

Remember how umami always told you that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Well girls, this is How to Keep it Fraiche with Rosemary Garden and I’m here to reassure you that if you work with the ripe ingredients (all of which are outlined below), you will never have to play ketchup in your relationship again. The key is to learn how to sift your mindset.

Rule #1: Keep it spicy

Rule #2: Don’t make a main out of a starter

Remember ladies, don’t wine and always keep it cool. It’s just not worth it to get nuts over the small things. If you find yourself in a pickle, butter up your lover and tenderize him with a meaty rub down.

Rule #3: Say yes to pepper

I grew up with five sisters in Worcestershire. I recall my mother telling us that you must relish each moment and remember that no batter how many courses you’re preparing at one time or how fried you might be, it’s imperative to pepper your partner with love and attention. It's a grate way to add flavor without getting too burned-out.

Add something unusual to your weekly routine. Throw in a few impromptu salsas with your man at home to really turn up the heat. (No one likes a lukewarm fish.)

Rule #5: Make thyme for each other

This is a rule I’m sure you’ve all heard before. If you don’t chop things off your schedule and make thyme for your man, things will start to get dicey. Fast.

If you integrate these guidelines, you’ll see that everything will start cumin together. If you don't, you’ll be forced to get Chimi with Churri while your hot sauce is off looking for another rack. And gentlemen, when it’s chilly and your lady kneads some warmth, remind her to put her cardamom on. (Use the opportunity to get close.)

With love & lite,

Rosemary,

The Sage
