Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Sesame Noodles with Prosciutto


From the most recent issue of Food & Wine...the whole issue is dedicated to Asian cuisine.

So while Matt made sushi for me (we seem to have settled on 'sushi Sundays'), I prepared this dish for him.

Chow mein noodles, cooked and tossed with sesame oil. Garlic, rapidly fried. To this add chunky peanut butter, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, ginger, and baslamic vinegar, forming a thick paste. Add some stock, making a smooth sauce.

Pour sauce over noodles. Add chopped prosciutto and scallion slices; toss till coated. Add some reserved (noodle) cooking liquid, and toss until the sauce is creamy.

Serve in bowls, and garnish with thin slices of cucumber.

That looks and sounds awesome! We love just about everything there but havent put it together like that. Will have to try that! I love prosciutto.

Thanks, Jennifer!

My husband is a huge fan of all Asian cuisines; we're going to be making a lot of dishes from this one.

Interesting sauce, though I wonder which branch of Asian cuisine this dish is taken from.

Well, the article did say it was Americanized...
