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.

A Study in Chocolate


Another Red's Round-Up (kids's party) at Earth Fare; this time the kids were given (small amounts of) chocolate to try.

Alex got to try a Venezuelan dark chocolate...

one in milk

carob chips

more Venezuelan chocolate, this time white

rice milk chocolate

"More chocolate?"

This, following a command to 'smile for Mommy'.

Chocolove with Raspberries.

What you can't see in the background: the kids got to dip gorgeous, organic, strawberries into melted Ghiradelli chocolate! He's just waiting his turn

Ok; Alex may have been getting fed up with the photo shoot around now. The kids were given both a soy and a low-fat chocolate milk to try. Alex was in the minority, picking the soy chocolate milk as the favorite.

After each tasting event, the kids are given some kind of arts and/or crafts project to work on. This time, it was Valentine's-related coloring sheets. See? The elephant is surrounded by hearts!

Alex, with one of the women who runs both this club, and various cooking and how-to classes at the store. He calls her the 'Kate-lady'.

Blog Party#7 has been announced, and this month? It's all about Red and Hot! Your cocktail and appetizer entries are due in less than two weeks, 16 February; so start planning, and hope to see you at the party!

Don't give children chocolate too early, they may love them ;-) I think they should be full age until they are allowed to try one piece. It would help to keep the furniture and the clothes clean :-)))

We don't actually give sweets, or any other junk food, to Alex. He's lucky if he gets a cookie once a week!

But when we do allow him that rare treat, he simply adores dark chocolate...what a kid.
