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.

They Make a Cream for That


Yesterday marked our seventh wedding anniversary. I'm not into the grand romantic gesture, nor am I hung up on the stereoptypical 'expressions' of love; we don't see the need to pay outrageous amounts of money for a dinner we could have (happily) cooked ourselves, and I'm much happier with a novel, comic book or bag of vanilla beans than if Matt showed up with jewelry.

So we celebrated the how-can-it-be-seven-years-already? with a completely no-cook, no fuss meal.

Cheeses...a lavender Chevre (Purple Haze), Fromage d'Affinois, smoked Gouda, Jarlsberg, & Kerrygold Dubliner.

A crusty baguette, crackers & fresh berries, along with sparkling blueberry juice. Perfect meal.

As for the whole 'Seven-Year Itch' phenomenon, no worries here. We both hated the dating process; and back then we were younger & carried less baggage. There's no way either of us want to deal with that, Ever Again.

This month, we're sleeping in a little late, but the party won't suffer...we're having Brunch!

I really like your philosophy of life. Nothing wrong with taking great pleasure in a simple experience. Important events don't need to be justified by grand gestures!

Stephanie, hearty congratulations to both of you on your anniversary and wishing many more such happy anniversaries to come.

I liked your thoughts in the first para - about not being ruthlessly lavish just to be "sterotyped". I agree that a home cooked meal could do much justice than a restaurant meal. Great thoughts!

Dan, thanks. And trust me, Matt knows what a lucky guy he is...! I think he's wonderful if brings me a pint of raspberries, so it doesn't take much to impress me.

Thank you, Ravi!

Things go so well when you find someone who 'gets' you, and believe me...Matt & I 'get' each other very well. With seven years to prove it!
