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.

Just 5 Shopping Days Left!


If you're struggling with those last-minute gifts, or the oh-so hard to buy for, here's some foodie-related gifts, found in the January issue of Vegetarian Times.

Badger Balm

Badger Balm sells a variety of rubs and balms, all for specific needs. There's one for the feet, for sore muscles, for babies, and of course, something to help you sleep. Their products are mostly organic, and a portion of the profits benefits children's charities. Plus, they never test their products on animals!

Good Cook's Monarch Collection

(pictures unavailable)

To quote VT: "This new line of kitchen tools is so ergonomic, you'll wonder why you're keeping your old gadgets around. The cheese grater's comfortable knob makes it easy to hold in place. The pizza wheel applies pressure from above to cut smoothly through crust, and the apple wedger has easy-grip, no-slip handles. The peeler's adjustable head allows you to hold it at the most comfortable angle for you.

Montecito Country Kitchen's Hot Spice Set

A selection of 'hot' spices...Cumin, Coriander, Cayenne pepper, Paprika, Turmeric and Tellicherry peppercorns...in clear-topped tins. I love being able to see my spices! They sell other spice collections, as well as jams, chutneys, marmalades and jams; they also sell some gorgeous copper cookware.

Klutz's Hemp Bracelets Craft Book

You can't forget the kids! Klutz's hemp bracelet kit includes 150 feet of hemp, lots of beads, and instructions with photos. And remember: growing hemp is good for farming! I quote: "Unrestricted hemp farming could give the US economy a healthy boost, not to mention our forests. Hemp is a fast-growing crop that doesn't rob the soil of nutrients and doesn't need pesticides. Forest take years to replenish; hemp, by contrast, is an annual plant that grows in four months. Once acre of hemp equal four acres of trees in terms of pulp production." (source, VT, January 2006)

So, happy shopping!
