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.

Happy Birthday to US


Some years ago, I saw what is, to this day, my favorite Fourth of July memory.

A photo of a boat, anchored somewhere in a river in England, bearing a sign that said:

"Happy Birthday America, Love Mom"

This year, I felt we should have a slightly more traditional July 4th meal. Something a bit like the foods Grammy would set out for us each holiday.

So, I made Guacamole BLT's, Barbecued Chicken & Veat (thanks, Matt), Potato Salad, Pasta Salad, Deviled Eggs, and a Deep-Dish Apple Pie; as well as some very sweet, but tart, Lemonade.

Lots of food, and like the stuff I grew up with, very well suited to grazing!

Happy 4th to my fellow Americans! Try not to eat too much...

Blog Party #12 has been announced, and we're celebrating a full year of appetizers and cocktails with a Passport Party. For July, we're traveling to our favorite places by way of the kitchen, with bites and drinks from our favorite countries. Entries are due Thursday, 20 July--early is always good--and I'll post the round-up 22 July. Hope to see you there!
