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.

Pasta with Sausage, Basil and Mustard


Is it just me, or are we eating a lot of pasta lately??

Thursday, I was five inches past exhausted. After he came home from work, Matt took Alex out to do some grocery shopping, and I went to bed. Just one of those days.

Just more proof of what a good man I married: I woke up to Matt announcing he'd made dinner.

Penne with Italian Sausage, Basil and Mustard. Uh...yum.

Just the slightest hint of a sauce...more of a flavoring, really. But nicely mustard-y, and a bit hot. That would be the crushed red pepper!

But honestly? Skip the basil. It's completely unnecessary.

Matt's a serious basil-addict, and even he said the dish would have been better without it. It couldn't compete with the mustard and the red pepper.

Still, pretty darn good. And as I didn't have to make it? Even better!

Sounds like a great dish -- I never would've thought of the mustard.

BNA...I don't know that I would have thought of it, either. But what a great flavor!
