ORLANDO, Fla. – “Recipes for Success: A Cookbook with a Recipe for Life” (ISBN 1466317647), by Mark Allen Waltrip, is a fascinating blend of a self-help guide and cookbook. It is based on the idea that life is a lot like cooking – you pick your ingredients and create your own dish, and the secret to success is having the right recipe. The book explains how to achieve meaningful personal success while providing cooking techniques and step-by-step instructions for more than 100 recipes.

The book demonstrates that both successful living and cooking require essential ingredients and a clear understanding of how to bring them together to create something truly special. Waltrip, who is the Chief Operating Officer for a billion-dollar entrepreneurial company, shows readers how to discover what success really means to them, based on their goals, values and God-given talents. He also includes over 100 unique recipes he has created for dishes like veal parmigiana, coq au vin, crawfish & andouille sausage gumbo and many more.

"Most people can easily tell you their favorite food, but few can tell you without hesitation what success really means to them," says Waltrip. "Your life is the most important recipe you’ll ever create and this book helps you figure it out."

The book was inspired by the author´s wife, whose determination in dealing with a tragic accident taught him the meaning of true success. Written to engage, entertain and inspire personal growth, Waltrip´s guide is intended for readers of all ages who want to improve their lives and have a passion for great food.

"Recipes for Success: A Cookbook with a Recipe for Life” is available for sale online at in both paperback and Kindle (eBook) format.
