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.

I'm back! And I've brought cookies...


I want to thank everyone who sent well-wishes. Even with the magical healing powers of Sambucol, whatever Alex had was too strong for my immune system, and I needed a few days of doing nothing.

Unfortunately, once I did that, I had to shift to over-drive, as Christmas was fast approaching.

I decided to just take a break from blogging this week, to concentrate on getting better, and make all those cookies I'd promised myself I'd crank out this year. (don't worry, I practically scrubbed my hands raw, what with all the cleaning and santizing)

I promise to get the Blog Party round-up posted either late tonight, or early tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's some cookies for you...enjoy!

Mint Truffle Bars

Pistachio Fingers

Choco-Caramel Delights

Lemon Butter Cookies

Chocolate-Almond Biscotti

Chocolate-Covered Coffee Bean Cookies


Chocolate Rugelach

Walnut 'Balls'

Holly Berry Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

That is a wonderful spread of cookies! Despite the fact that I've been baking up a storm this month, I never tire of sweets, it's a problem...

I look forward to getting back to reading your blog after my sabbatical ends in January!

Libby...they are one of my absolute favorites, too!

I mean...chocolate cookie, rolled in pecans, then filled with caramel and drizzled with chocolate?

Can you say 'heaven'??

And thanks!

Brilynn; Thank you!

I never eat them, of course, but I have to bake. I cut a couple of recipes out, since Christmas is practically here, and I have a Christmas day brunch to prepare, but I'm rather pleased with that tray!

Thank you, Peabody!

Although there's still a pumpkin roll to be made, as well as your Mint Kiss Meringues, which Matt is very excited about!

would you be willing to share/point to recipes for any of these? i'm thinking a few of them may make it into my annual Christmas cookie rotation.

Some of us would love that chocolate chip cookie recipe...hint, hint. ;)

Hi Beth!

Normally, I'm beyond happy to share my recipes with people.

But I confess to a certain territorial feeling when it comes to my Christmas cookies!

Thanks, Trini!

Alex announced the mint truffle bars his favorite this year. The kid loved them.
