Last night we watched a musical soiree of my daughter’s school where she performed as part of the Senior Choir and Grade 5 band playing the flute.  The show is not phenomenal as professional shows would be but it was heartwarming to see children trying their hands at various instruments and showing what they can do …

Chocolate Mousse

It has been really hot the past few days and I have been thinking of what to make for a light dessert that will both cool us down and satisfy our sweet tooth.  Checking my fridge, I saw some cream, some eggs and I know that I had some dark chocolate in the pantry. Hmmmm…. what …
