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 have/had a very interesting life, Stephanie.

I also love old movies, in particular 'The Philadelphia Story'.
Dazed and Confused.. I didn't see that one yet.I'm going to get from the library.

At 5:11 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Oh, you aren't kidding!

Dazed and Confused is a fairly recent film, set during the 1970's...it's highly quotable!

Mt sister also has prehensile toes.

At 11:07 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Yeah...that often freaks people out.

At 4:51 PM, Blogger Lex Culinaria said...

You crack me up.

i used to date a woman that lived in Oakland. She took me to a really good italian restaurant once. Yummy.

At 11:46 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Randi...what was the name of the restaurant? Matt and I had our first 'date' at Olivetto's, a rather fabulous place. And about a ten-fifteen minute walk from our house!

At 2:34 PM, Blogger Jeanne said...

Re #1: Me too!!! OMG, maybe you and I are secretly related - does that mean I'm also related to Albert Speer?? :o) Not only can I pick up small objects, I have been known to pinch my husband with said prehensile toes if I feel he's misbehaving. Don't even ask... Great lists!

At 3:00 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Hey, maybe we are!

I can pinch with my toes, too...and Matt's on the receiving end!

Jeanne, I don't need to ask...I have a very vivid imagination...!
