Antonio’s ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


I am anti-marriage. I have seen too many cases of failed relationships, how they destroy lives, bring out the worst in people, how they turn the very best of friends into strangers or, even worse, enemies.

I have chosen and accepted my fate.

I am going to be a spinster.

BUT if Chef Antonio “Tonyboy” Escalante were not married, I would be on my knee right here, right now, asking him to spend the rest of his life with me. I would promise to be a good wife to him, to love and respect him, and bear him a kitchen full of beautiful and talented mini chefs. I would vow never to nag and complain, that every word that will come out of my mouth is to encourage him and do wonderful things for his ego. I would serve and obey him, be a slave to him, worship him and put him above all else. I would do anything and everything for him.

Because I am in love.

Fiercely. Passionately. Hopelessly.

In love with Chef Antonio’s…

Oh Chef, would you ever consider taking in a mistress? A concubine? An inamorata? Because I sure wouldn’t mind calling your beautiful restaurant my home.










Take me in, Chef.


Take all of us in.
