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.

Purple Pumpkin Seed Eater


Lavender pumpkin seeds. How 'bout that.

Slightly sweet, yet salty...and rather addictive. Fun, and colorful, snack.

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!

4 Thoughts for food:

Those are so pretty! I think I am in love! How are they purple? IS it naturally or are they dyed??

That's an excellent question!

They come from China, so you can imagine how the Chinese-to-English translation is.

They're called Violet Pumpkin Seeds, and the ingredient list goes like this: Pumpkin Seeds, Lavender, Salt, Gourmet powder (???), Saccharin-Na, Flavor and Color From Herb Extract.

So...quite possibly, the color could come from the lavender, but I really don't know.
