Hurrey’s “point system” is just one of the many gems that gives solid recommendations on how to communicate with your significant other.
A man’s points are only transient at best, lasting only so long as the next time we lose them. A woman’s are a lifetime achievement deal and never go away!
Also included are easy-to-fix meals (that will earn you more points) that any guy can readily prepare at a moment’s notice. You’ll get vital info such as prep time/beer time. According to Hurrey, 30 minutes of prep and an hour and a half cooking time is equal to five beers; of course, these variables can change if grilling outdoors. One of his recipes, “Beer Butt Chicken” requires a six pack or two—during prep time, you’ll chug down a couple of brews, but you’ll need more for the actual cooking!
Pop open a beer and get ready to laugh out loud. The Grease Monkey Gourmet will become a staple in your kitchen library and one you’ll want to pick up for your friends to help them score crucial “points” with their own significant others.

Take a step into the kitchen with Pete Hurrey and you're sure to be served up more than good food. The Grease Monkey Gourmet is a comical conversation with a good friend who aims to teach you the ins and outs of making a tasty relationship last.
This book offers more than just a list of recipes to give your average male a boost in the most important room in your home (the kitchen of course). The author speaks of good food, good women and good tools for the kitchen and the heart (though maybe not your arteries). But above all, he speaks the truth.
Author Pete Hurrey has developed a "Point System" for relationships that is blunt, spot-on, and almost offensively hilarious. His prep and cooking times for meals are measured in terms that any male will easily grasp (number of beers consumed).
Recipes are based on simple, inexpensive ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry and will probably help you clean out some old ingredients from your fridge, literally. From fun recipes such as "Clean-Out-the-Refrigerator Soup," to traditional classics like Homemade Spaghetti and Meatballs, The Grease Monkey Gourmet has it all!
Sprinkled throughout the recipes, Hurrey has included helpful tips like how to flip the perfect egg, how to create the easiest batter coating and how to escape your significant other's inquisitions about her hair or whether or not she "looks fat in that dress." Reading these tips is sure to create a pleasant atmosphere on the home front.
So ladies, if you think your man needs some help in any of these departments, or men, if you can admit to your God-given flaws, pick up a copy of Pete Hurrey's, The Grease Monkey Gourmet. You owe it to each other, and your stomachs.
