There are many things men will instinctively purchase on their own, such as tools and technology; however, many tend to forego purchases that could boost their confidence and sex appeal. TASTOSTERONE, written by cook, blogger and author Debra Levy Picard, helps men to navigate around the kitchen, where they will ultimately find independence, health, nostalgia and love through cooking.

TASTOSTERONE offers men an attractive road map of more than 100 recipes, tools, techniques and tips for cooking up delicious dishes. The cookbook speaks to men of all ages – the son, husband, father, single guy, newlywed, college student, retiree, divorcé and widower. Whether he’s a top chef or has never set foot in the kitchen, he will be able to master the simple recipes found in TASTOSTERONE.

Here is one of my favorite Recipes: Steakhouse Onion Soup!


There is something about a bowl of onion soup that warms the heart and soul. 
I find when I order onion soup at a restaurant it’s usually too salty. Keep in mind adding cheese to the soup also adds salt, which may be why the restaurant version overwhelms the sensitive palate.

Servings: 6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 large yellow onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups low sodium beef stock
  • 4 cups regular beef stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup Port wine
  • 6 slices of French bread (one per bowl)
  • 3 cups Gruyère cheese, shredded


  1. Melt butter in a large sauté pan.
  2. Add sliced onions and cook uncovered over low flame for 10 minutes.
  3. Add sugar and continue to cook uncovered for an additional 20 minutes (less if you prefer a broth that is less sweet) or until the onions caramelize.
  4. Transfer to a large soup pot.
  5. Add port, broth, bay leaf, salt and pepper.
  6. Simmer for 30 – 40 minutes covered.
  7. Remove bay leaf.
  8. Preheat oven to broil.
  9. Place ovenproof soup bowls on baking sheet lined with foil.
  10. Distribute broth and onion in each bowl, put bread in at an angle, top with cheese and dot with butter (optional).
  11. Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. You can also bake soup for 10 minutes in a 350°F oven.


When in the sauté pan, do not stir onions more than once or twice (just to prevent them from sticking) or onions will not carmelize. Visit for more recipes and to buy your own copy!
