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.

Herbed Scrambled Egg, Spinach & Brie-Stuffed Croissants


I may never learn what it is about breakfast foods, exactly, that gives them such unending appeal.

Why something as simple as eggs & toast can make you feel complete. What it is about pancakes that provides such happiness.

Perhaps it's slated to be my very own Great Wonder; I suppose it doesn't really matter. What I do know is that if you're serving a breakfast-y dish, regardless of the time of day, you're likely to get a smile from me.

I came across a recipe for Croissants Stuffed with Herbed Scrambled Eggs, Spinach, Apples, and Brie. Three-quarters of it sounded good.

I'll go on record as saying that 1. I love fruit & B. I cannot eat cooked fruit.

I could clarify further by adding 'I do not like dishes with fruit in them'.

I will happily eat just about any fruit I can get my hands on, but texture issues dictate it not be folded, spindled or mutilated in any way. I like my fruit fresh & uncooked.

Alright; I will eat fruit in yogurt, and I adore blueberry muffins and bagels. But that's as far as I go.

So this recipe, from Vegetarian Sandwiches: Fresh Fillings for Slices, Pockets, Wraps and Rolls was almost perfect.

Skipping directions for the apple, eggs are lightly beaten, milk is added, and the whole thing beaten again.
Melt butter in a skillet, add eggs and allow it to set. While still moist, reduce heat and add cubes of Brie and herbs (called for chives, we used thyme), nutmeg, salt and pepper. Fold egg over add-ons; let Brie melt.
Top the bottom of a split croissant with baby spinach leaves & egg mix, cover with croissant top. Eat while hot.

It's good stuff. There's room to play around with the herbs, and of course you could use other cheeses. It's slightly messy, but still a beauty.

I am SO with you on the cooked fruit issue! I've just never liked it! That looks like one heavenly breakfast!

Holly, I love fruit. I can eat an entire canteloupe, or pint of raspberries. But as soon as heat is applied? Gah.

But this? Oh, my...eggs & croissants. Heaven.
