I have to say I'm an amazing cook. I've made a couple little recipes up all by my ownsome, and I'm very good at following other recipes and I greatly enjoy whipping up a feast. I'm a naturally good navigator, and (when not distracted by the most extraordinary things) probably a much-better-than-average driver. I can decorate quite well with what other people leave at the curb. I can sew, crochet, knit and probably stitch up a nasty gash. I'm a very good gardener. No one can spoil a dog the way I can. I'm a fair shot and handily qualified for my CHL last week. I like to be nice, but have been known to crack a whip when one needed cracking. Even at 5'2", a person or two has called me intimidating.

But only yesterday did I truly become a dangerous woman, possessor of the key to the undoing of the known universe: late Tuesday, the Brown Truck of Happiness™ delivered to me Nanny Ogg's Cookbook.

This was a surprise belated birthday gift from darling dear enabler Christina in Las Vegas. Thanks Christina, you clever girl!

I can't wait to get started, and now no one is safe. You have been warned.

I'll keep a freezer-full of ice on hand, btw, not that it will be enough.

Yays! I saw this one in a bookstore a long time ago and immediately thought of you...;)

So I took the opportunity your birthday provided to enable you, m'dear.

Have fun, and don't burn down the place!

Proving once again that it's a small world, the third co-author of Nanny's Cookbook is Misty, who sometimes comments on Kim duToit's blog, if I remember correctly.
