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.

Penne with Prosciutto and Parmesan


Matt protested (just in case his doctor was eavesdropping), but this incredibly simple and mighty tasty dish from the December issue of Gourmet still made it to the table.

Because it calls for prosciutto, and that's not really an option of me, I split the recipe in half, and used vegetarian bacon for mine.

That left a problem: we didn't have appropriately-sized baking dishes for the two, smaller amounts, so I improvised. That meant neither one developed the golden crunchy cheese layer.

But it was still pretty darn good. There's nothing spectacular about it; rather, it's like high-end comfort food.

Really, really, tasty comfort food...

You won't want to miss the most fabulous Blog Party ever, coming Saturday, 16 December! This month, we're going HOLLYWOOD...Lights, Camera, Action! RSVP by THIS Thursday, 14 December; hope to see you there.

Joe...it really was. If you can forget you're eating a large quantity of cream and salted meat? Fantastic!
