DSC_7019(small)In college I had a friend who complained of being a huge money-waster.

She always claimed that through no fault of her own, she’d end up spending money needlessly in spite of her best efforts not to.

(And I mean that in the nicest way possible, as a statement of fact rather than judgement. She was a great friend!)

Valentine’s Day Menu: Dark Chocolate Mousse

img_5694-small

This is the final course of our homemade Valentine’s Day meal.  And it really goes out with a bang.  It’s not your typical mousse, since you won’t find any eggs here.  Instead I used Greek yogurt to make it a little healthier (let’s face it, this meal was not light on calories, so we might as well make up for it a little bit ;) ), and also because with this method the dessert is literally made in minutes.  This mousse is so decadent you won’t miss the eggs.    I’m sending this mousse over to Natasha of 5 Star Foodie for her 5 Star […]...
