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.

6 Thoughts for food:

mmmmm, I think to hang out in your pantry would be a beautiful thing. :) good luck on this endeavor! I've always found that after excess baking I'm in no mood to enjoy the finished product (of course that could be all the excess sampling, along the way)

That's funny, Laura! Because we're constantly faced with 'what on Earth are we going to make for dinner tonight?'!

Believe it or not, I never eat what I bake. I have no interest. I guess for me, it's all about baking and watching other's enjoy it.

Plus, it saves on calories...

OK, how do I get on the receiving end of a cookie platter? ;)

Hmmm...send your address?

At 1:40 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

amateur...you're not kidding!

And I begin baking this evening (now that I'm slightly less worried about the kitty). Wish me luck...!
