For me Claudia’s Chocolate Mousse is the mousse by which all others are judged. It is however, not a health food. Jan has started to make it on anyone’s birthday. Jan spent years perfecting the techniques of making the mousse, but she got bored with making just “chocolate” mousse. She now makes a different variation every time she make it. For example, she has made a cherry liqueur variation, a Baileys Irish Cream variation, and a low sugar variation.

Jan’s Chocolate Mousse, the Father’s Day Variation
For me Claudia’s Chocolate Mousse is the mousse by which all others are judged. It is however, not a health food. It has replaced cakes as the birthday/holiday treat in our house. Jan has spent years perfecting the techniques of making my mother’s mousse, but it took her years before she dared to tinker with mom’s recipe. This weekend, I am making Israeli couscous with almonds, Jan decided that chocolate mousse with Amaretto would be a good dessert for my Father’s Day dinner.

Karl’s Almond Banana Oat Mini-muffins
Jan took some bananas with her when she went to hang out with her friends this weekend. In the end they did not eat them, but the travel left them in pretty sorry shape. Banana bread for breakfast!
