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.

Peanut Butter Bread


Just in time for a school-day breakfast, the recently ordered Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook: The Best Recipes From Southampton's Favorite Bakery For Home-style Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Muffins, And Breads cookbook arrived.

I'm not exactly doing cartwheels of joy after reading through the recipes; they're a bit too 'standard' for my tastes.

But as read them off to Matt, he perked up at the mention of Peanut Butter Bread.

A very dense batter; butter and sugars (white and dark brown) creamed, peanut butter, an egg, vanilla, flour and baking powder (rather a lot, I thought), salt, and finally, milk.

Bake almost an hour.

Matt says: "A bit like a peanut butter cookie in bread form. Sweet and peanut-buttery, but with a lighter texture than a cookie."

Alex had his plain, but I spread Matt's with a chocolate-peanut butter ice cream topping I'd bought at Earth Fare.

Hey, it's his breakfast.

Seriously, that was my first choice, but I thought I'd stick with the pb theme. But c'mon; Nutella rocks!
