Espresso Chocolate Mousse

Espresso Chocolate Mousse
Last night, it rained. It sounded like magic and love and dreaming and soup and kittens. I put on my fluffiest sweatshirt and cuddled up in bed and watched super classy shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom 2. Keepin’ things elegant, you know. I was joyous; absolutely blissful. Until, without any warning, some scary evil malicious malevolent forceful force came over me and I was craving chocolate frosting something fierce. No amount of Gossip Girl was going to help me and I knew it, so I gave in. It’s like eating chocolate clouds off a spoon. Espresso Chocolate Mousse 4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into pieces 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder 2 large eggs, seperated 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar 3 tablespoons superfine sugar, divided 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream Set a medium sized bowl in the freezer- you will use this later to whip the cream. Eat some chocolate today. Jordana Like this: Like Loading...

Chocolate Espresso Cookies Where did February go? What did I do? Apparently, I made coffee cake—that was a good idea. I joyfully stomped around in the giant puddles brought about by enormous mounds of snow melting in near-60° weather. I slipped and fell on my butt in front of the fire department the following day, when the melted snow turned to sheets of ice on a 12° morning. Not cool, Nature. Chocolate Kahlua Mousse Extreme Dessert It doesn’t get much better’n this. Besides being remarkably easy to make (thanks to the crockpot), once chilled, this food from the Gods becomes super dense, like the center of an incredible chocolate bon bon. Take a bite and you will go, “mmmmmmmm.” But heed this warning: do not dish up a portion the size of this photo.

All about our coffee, subscriptions, and online ordering These large Supremo beans produce a classic Colombian brew that is mild and very well-balanced. Despite it's mildness there is still a caramel sweetness, silky smooth mouth-feel and minimal bitterness. This is a great all-rounder of a coffee, good for drinking at any time and great with food.

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast This Mother’s Day, treat your mom to a special brunch… Make her this delicious french toast! Personally, this is a very special Mother’s Day for me, since I am now the proud mother of both a son and a daughter. My little girl will be 3 weeks old this Saturday, the 7th. She is quite precious, and I am loving every second of being a mother of two! I made this for my mom when she recently visited a few weeks ago after the birth of my daughter. It’s such a special way to say “I love you” and “thank you”! Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse: Healthy! Hazelnuts and Chocolate are a wonderful combination. Nutella figured that one out years ago. My friend, Jessica made a request that I make a raw food recipe that contains hazelnuts and chocolate. This mousse was the perfect thing. By substituting almond milk and almond butter with hazelnut milk and hazelnut butter, the flavors balance beautifully. Everyone, raw or non raw will love this mousse.

Damn thy Disposable Coffee is a wonderful thing. But it takes a vast amount of resources to bring us our daily cup(s). The least we can do is try to minimize that impact. In an ideal world, everyone has the time to sit down with a ceramic mug and enjoy their coffee until it’s gone. However, in real life people have things to do and places to go—so they take their coffee with them. Cinnamon Toast Rolls The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious. In honor of their ancestry, I call these little gems cinnamon toast rolls, and here’s all you need to make them…
