Lemon Shortbread

Cookies for Santa: The Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Usually I feel a little weird saying “the best.” I hear it/see it a lot, but I tend to reserve the best for, well, the best. Inevitably, this means I don’t use “the best” as a modifier very often. That being said,…

Spicy Dark Chocolate Mousse Recipe

I’m finishing off the week on a sweet (and spicy) note with this super easy chocolate mousse inspired by Hervé This. This is a French molecular chemist who came up with an innovative way of making chocolate mousse with just two ingredients: chocolate and water. Most people would agree that chocolate and water don’t mix and normally, they don’t. But when you add a bit of heavy whisking into the mixture, the molecules rearrange themselves and you end up with a super smooth mousse that actually sets into something luxuriously delicious.
