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.

Light and Easy


A quick, healthy and very tasty dinner. Southwestern Chopped Salad, a repeat from Vegetarian Times; grape tomatoes, avocado, hard-boiled egg, red bell and jalapeno peppers, pinto beans, corn, and lime tortilla chips tossed with a little bit of olive oil, lime juice, chili powder and sugar.


I love this salad. It's so fresh and filling, and packed with flavor. Love, love, love.

A light garlic soup,created by cooking tons of chopped garlic in olive oil, then adding the garlic to broth; dressed up with avocado, garlic croutons and queso fresco. Perfect. Recipe comes from Rick Bayless.

They both look great!
I am thinking of making something like the top salad but serving in on half a baked sweet potato for dinner..
The bottom soup looks really different any chance you would eml me the recipe?

They both look good! I loved when Rick was on the various FoodTV shows as a guest chef - his stuff has always been a winner.

Thanks, Joe!

I like him, too (we both do), which is just another reason I'm not a Bobby Flay fan!
