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.

An Asian & Heart-Filled Hug For Barbara


Poached Ginger-Lime Salmon on Kaffir Lime Rice

Dear Barbara;

I know your appetite has taken a vacation, and your stomach is playing games without telling you the rules. It's my hope this fragrant & fresh dish will entice your appetite to come back, and cause the belly to call a 'time-out'.

A 1/2 pound of skin-on salmon, marinated with 1/4 cup lime juice, a heaping tablespoon ginger/garlic paste, 2 teaspoons soy sauce, and a half teaspoon Chinese hot chili paste. Cook lightly, with marinade.

Serve on a bed of lime-infused rice; zest, juice and finely chopped Kaffir lime leaves for flavor.

I truly hope you enjoy it.

Alex wanted to do something to make you feel better, and this is his interpretation of what a hug would look like. If you click on the photo, you'll see pink & red hearts, in various sizes, as drawn by a 5 3/4 year old boy.

Never forget how special you are to so many of us; we're all hoping, wishing & praying for your full recovery.

Happy eating!


Stephanie, Matt & Alex
