I originally posted this Gluten-Free Chocolate Chunk Brownie recipe when we were just days away from the release of my very first ebook, Eat Cake Naked: aphrodisiac desserts to heat up your love life.

About Amy Reiley
Amy Reiley travels the world pushing aphrodisiacs on the curious, adventurous and lovelorn. Hers is a pleasure-filled career in a rather unusual, culinary niche.
In August 2004, she became the second American to earn a Master of Arts in Gastronomy awarded by France’s culinary temple, Le Cordon Bleu. While at Cordon Bleu, Amy rose to prominence for her work in culinary aphrodisiacs. In 2006, Amy releases her first book, Fork Me, Spoon Me: the sensual cookbook, cementing her role as America’s leading aphrodisiac food authority. Filling a niche in the cookbook market, demand resulted in the book’s second printing less than two years later. (As of November 2016, book is in its fifth printing.)
Through her company, Life of Reiley, Amy has found many avenues to promote her aphrodisiac knowledge and unique take on life’s “consuming passions.” The Eat Something Sexy website, www.eatsomethingsexy.com, and Amy’s monthly e-newsletter, Amy Reiley’s Aphrodisiac of the Month are considered the online authorities on aphrodisiac food history and science. She speaks and consults on the topic and has appeared on The Today Show, CBS Early Show, Nightline and even Playboy TV–you’ll recognize her as the one wearing clothing.
But Amy’s culinary knowledge is not limited to aphrodisiac foods. In June 2005, Reiley was singled out as one of the five best female wine professionals in the world of the year by France’s Wine Women Awards.
An internationally recognized journalist, Amy has shared her food and wine knowledge in such publications as Variety, Sunset, Daily Candy, The Daily Meal, Los Angeles and Las Vegas magazines.
As the creator of Amy Reiley’s Pocket Vineyard in 1999, Amy quickly established her place in this male dominated industry by introducing the world to the first comprehensive wine app for PDA’s. In 2001 she launched the companion program, Amy Reiley’s Pocket Gourmet, lauded by Newsweek as the first of its kind. Both the Pocket Vineyard and Pocket Gourmet were named two of Worth Magazine’s “must have” apps in 2002.
Amy’s second book, Chile Aphrodisia by Rio Nuevo press, was released in June 2006. Her other books include Romancing the Stove: the unabridged guide to aphrodisiac foods and The Love Diet. In addition to writing, Amy speaks and consults on various food and wine topics. She also runs Life of Reiley’s boutique publishing company. Her publishing successes include bestselling baking book Kiss My Bundt: recipes from the award-winning bakery. Amy’s latest book, Eat Cake Naked: aphrodisiac desserts to heat up your love life, co-authored by nutrition expert Delahna Flagg, became an Amazon bestseller in its first week.

This is one of my favorite recipes of all time–cookie or otherwise. And I’m so happy to get to share it here. I would love to offer you some insight into the origin of icing cookies. But I have no idea where they came from. My hand written copy of the recipe is copied from […]
A classic Manhattan drink made with Baby Bourbon The Manhattan is a classic, American cocktail. It was invented, as you can guess, in New York City. The original Manhattan recipe called for rye, vermouth and bitters. It is a potent drink that seems to ride waves of popularity every time our nation experiences dark days.
Woman on Wine with Amy Reiley In my house, the bubbles flow this time of year. That’s because I’m fortunate enough to be in charge of Gayot.com’s Best Champagnes lists. We not only recommend the best Vintage Champagnes but categorize France’s finest sparkling wines into five additional categories. It’s a truly comprehensive guide to the best […]
