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.

You're killing me. Really. I feel like I'm drooling to death. Morbier has got to be my favorite French cheese that I can actually buy in this country, followed closely by St. Andre. And you show both!! Such audacity! :-) I hope your meal was as delicious as it looked!!!

Thanks, Joey!

And we have a couple left over....!!

At 2:12 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Sorry, Christy!

And we have lots of cheese left over, too...not to torment you further, or anything.

It really was as good as it looked, thank goodness!

It seems like a very good thanksgiving foodwise, Stephanie.

ah.. I was waiting for the lentil ravioli photo more than anything. They must be good. I am thinking of trying the recipe from the link you posted.

Well, my in-laws claimed they wouldn't need to eat until Saturday, when my brother-in-law (in Texas) was cooking yet another big meal for them, so I guess they were satisfied!

I'm so sorry! By the time we finally sat down, I thought I'd taken pictures of everything. But, Matt was still assembling the soup. I totally forgot.

You really should try it. The raviolli's were nice, and the garlic broth (any recipe will do) was the perfect partner.
