I don’t eat dessert for dinner nearly as much as I thought I would when I was eight.
So this past weekend I caught up. In my eighth attempt at cooking/baking, I made my favorite dessert: dark chocolate mousse.
The key to a good mousse: whip the cream in an ice-cold bowl. Also, consider not being a knucklehead like me who did all the whipping of both the mousse and whipped cream by hand. My shoulder is killing me.
On the other hand, I think someone was insinuating he wanted to lick the bowl.
Actually, it’s a one-bedroom. But living in an apartment is one of the many sacrifices I make while I happily pursue my dream. And I love the pursuit. I love the people, the challenges, the city of Los Angeles, and, most of all, the feeling that makes my heart quicken every time I get to do the thing that I love: acting.
