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.

At 11:49 PM, Blogger Tanya said...

Yay! I'm so excited!

 
At 8:02 PM, Blogger Rachael said...

Can't wait!

 
At 9:12 PM, Blogger Beth G. said...

Awesome! I can't wait, what a cool event :)

 
At 2:51 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tanya...yay, too!

 
At 2:51 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Rachael...by the time I finally got around to replying to this, you no longer have to!

 
At 2:51 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Beth...ditto, for you!

 
At 4:20 AM, Blogger NĂºria said...

Hi! Just discovered your blog and saw about this Event... what a great idea!!! I would love to participate! Is it closed? I'm I on time? Will you repeat it sometime?
Thanks :D

 
At 2:55 PM, Blogger Tammy said...

Bummer! Why is this closed? I would LOVE to participate as well! :( Please reconsider!

 
At 12:32 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Nuria, yes, it's closed, but once this one wraps up I hope to get another one off the ground. Check back!

 
At 12:37 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tammy; why is it closed?

Hmmm...sign-ups were open for almost six weeks. 85 people joined. I then had to sort through all of them, dividing them into International and Domestic sets, with sub-groups for North American, Europe or Aus/NZ only, from those groups, I then had to match up just the right person for each participant, gather all the info and individually email each one. I then do my best to keep track of each package as it makes it's way across the globe...

That's why they are closed. If the sign-ups were open-ended...I'd never sleep!

 
At 3:12 PM, Blogger Tammy said...

Sorry... I didn't realize how much work you did!!! I JUST heard about it today, so I was totally psyched. Please keep me in mind for the next round!!!

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger mk99 said...

And Stephanie, we all appreciate and recognize the tremendous amount of work you do for this - for us!

 
At 5:26 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tammy...just keep checking back. It'll be a few months, but I'm sure we'll have another one.

 
At 5:26 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

mk99...aw, thanks!

 
At 8:28 PM, Blogger Megan said...

I (Megans cookin) sent my package to pursuit of fiber and she has recieved! Thanks stephanie!!!

 
At 5:11 PM, Blogger Annina said...

hey!

greetings - annina --> Ann's Food; www.anninasfood.blogspot.com

 
At 6:40 AM, Blogger Antonia said...

Thank you so much for organising this brilliant event! My parcel arrived yesterday and it was so exciting unwrapping all the goodies. Such a great idea. Thank you for all your work.

 
At 2:54 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Annina...sorry about that! Sometimes I do the updates while I'm not quite awake...all fixed now.

 
At 2:54 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thanks, Antonia! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

 
At 2:56 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

thanks for letting me know, Megan!

 
At 10:11 AM, Blogger Andreea said...

At 11:35 AM, Blogger rachel said...

Hi Stephanie - I never got my matchup information! I haven't been preparing a package because i don't know who to send it to. Can you resend me my partner info for Rachel's Bite?

Thanks!

 
At 3:07 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Rachel...I've resent. Please be sure to check junk/spam folders, just in case. And if you don't get, send an email right away....

 
At 3:08 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thank you, Andreea!

Definitely, Amy!

 
At 11:05 AM, Anonymous Don't Burn Down the Kitchen! said...

Hey! I sent my package off last Thursday. Due to the bad storms in the Southeast, I lost power. :p I couldn't e-mail you to let you know without electricity!

Thanks for running yet another round of BBM! I can't wait for my goodie box. :}

 
At 2:31 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

DBDtK...thanks for letting me know!

 
At 7:47 PM, Blogger ServesYouRight said...

At 2:10 PM, Blogger barbie2be said...

booo. how come people aren't posting pix and posts about receiving their packages? :(

 
At 3:46 PM, Blogger ServesYouRight said...

My post is up at http://smitaservesyouright.blogspot.com/2008/03/happiness-in-box.html

I promise to stop hogging the comments space!

Smita

 
At 9:26 AM, Blogger mk99 said...

Should I be worried that I shipped my BBM over two weeks ago and the recipient hasn't acknowledged receiving it?

I know I am anxious to see if she was happy with everything - but it was supposed to be there in 6-10 days.

 
At 11:39 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Smita...thanks for the updates!!

 
At 11:39 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Barbie...I wish I knew.

 
At 11:40 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

MK99...don't panic just yet. I'll look into it, and see what I can find.

 
At 1:56 AM, Blogger coco said...

Got mine! Thank you so much Stephanie for putting this event together! I love all the stuff I got! :D thanks lynee from cafe lynnylu!

 
At 9:41 AM, Blogger Katie said...

I never heard anythng back as to who/where I need to send my package. I know it is super late...but i would still like to send it?!

At 10:04 AM, Blogger Renee said...

Got my packaged from One-Wall Kitchen! :) It's fantastic and I can't wait to write it up. I should have some time this weekend to do so!!

 
At 3:32 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Coco...thanks!

 
At 3:33 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Katie...check your email, including spam folders. I've re-sent the information.

 
At 3:33 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thanks, Renee!

 
At 3:31 PM, Blogger Lynnylu said...

Hi-my package from Agnes arrived today! A lot of cool things-will post photo soon. Thanks for organizing such a cool event!

At 8:28 AM, Blogger Carrie said...

How can I enter this for the next blogging by mail event?? I would love to join!!

 
At 12:54 PM, Blogger Evelin said...

I'm sorry for announcing it so late, but my package has shipped quite some time ago and I've also received a package from A Fridge Full of Food!

 
At 8:31 AM, Blogger Kimi said...

I just heard about this. Will you be doing it again?
Kim

At 3:47 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Lynne...thank you!

 
At 3:48 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Carrie; my advice would be to just check back in from time to time. There's no real schedule, as the event itself spans months.

So...pop in now & again, and eventually, a new round will be up and running!

 
At 3:49 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Evelin...thanks! That's a big help...and better late than never, as they say.

 
At 3:50 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Kimi...read some of the comments for a further explanation, but yes...at some point!

 
At 9:20 AM, Blogger Andreea said...

my package has arrived (ah, the belgian post!) - but i have to locate the blog of my italian sender. any advise?! :)

 
At 12:09 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Andreea: I've sent her email address to you, but this is her blog.

 
At 4:36 PM, Blogger Deborah said...

Thanks again for organising this Stephanie and apologies again about the late package! ;-)

 
At 3:11 PM, Blogger Andreea said...

done :)

 
At 1:44 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Deborah; you're welcome!

 
At 1:45 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Andreea...done what???

 
At 1:45 PM, Blogger Valerie said...

Hi Stephanie,
I've got my package from Sathya at The Baker&Currymaker in the mail today! :)

Will leave another comment when the blog-post goes up. Thanks!!

@The Italian Housewife

 
At 5:39 PM, Blogger rachel said...

Hi Stephanie - I completely spaced on this! I didn't get the original email from you and then you resent it just days before the mailing date. I got two items but then forgot about it!!! I feel so bad! I'll pick up a few other things this weekend and get it shipped!

Also, a few weeks ago I got an email from the person shipping to me (can't remember their name) and they had a similar problem receiving the original email. At that time they said they were shipping my package but i have not yet received it. I have their contact info at home and can follow up with them.

I'll get right on this! You are so close :)

 
At 8:06 AM, Blogger Pixie said...

Hi Steph,

thanks once again for all your hard work- wanted to let you know that my package to heave on earth arrived a few weeks back- not sure if she contacted you or not.

Thanks for all your hard work!

At 4:54 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Valerie...thank you! I know we all look forward to seeing what you got!

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Rachel...thank you!

Do let me know when your box goes out. I know the box to you has been shipped...I can only hope it arrives soon. Keep me posted!

 
At 4:56 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Pixie...thank you! I had not heard, so that helps.

 
At 7:01 PM, Blogger Heather said...

I just came across "Blogging by Mail" and I think it is a great idea!!! I saw that sign ups are closed, do you think you will do it again?

 
At 9:16 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Heather, thanks...it is a lot of fun. I'm hoping to start up a new round near the end of summer; I even have a theme in mind!

So, check back now & then, ok?

 
At 2:09 AM, Blogger Kai said...

Hi, Stephanie, here's my post on the package I received. Sorry for being so late.

Thanks again for organizing and looking forward to the next round!

 
At 6:22 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thanks for that!
