Well, here it is.  Simple, but yummy.  This is my first run and I am sure it will evolve.  That is just me...I am sure that most of my guest will not care, they will just love the taste.

Coming up next... starting the enchiladas

It's my twist on a chocolate mousse cake. I made individual little cakes for each of my guests. They were all surprised and very pleased. I piped the mousse into the cake cups. They were very yummy.

You just liked it so much you said it, actually it is Chocolate Mousse Cake IV that I did a little differently and embellised and added my own twist to.

They look gorgeous Hilly, very well done! I haven't made chocolate mousse yet, but I should try it soon. How many of these did you make? I am sure your guests complimented you a lot, the presentation is nice!

I made and there were plenty left over as I had 5 no shows. I even took some to my single guy neighbor next door ;-), really because even though I love sweets, Chocolate is not my absolute favorite and like I need a bigger Yes, they did compiment me and the whole meal and I had so much fun I did not take pics. :-( Please stay tuned I will share the recipes.

About Me
I am native Texan (born & raised). who loves to cook. Fancy to simple, it matters not, I simply love to cook. I have a stressful job and I find cooking is the best stress reliever and truly a relaxing for me rather than a chore. I have been cooking since I was about 7 and always had a natural affinity and curiosity for it. I often experimented. Both my parents worked and my sister and I oftened fended for ourselves. So, I guess a great deal of it came from necessity at times, but once I started I couldn't stop.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes and do not stick to one thing. My favorite is probably desserts. I love to experiment!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tamales! Every Christmas, we all get together and make tamales. If you don't help, you don't get any.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of mexican cuisine. I am of hispanic descent, but very americanized. We definetly DO NOT eat mexican food every day in our house.
My cooking tragedies
Rolls! I used to make them so well and the last couple of times they have been "Ellie Mae" type rolls....I am still trying to get over it. ****UPDATE***finally got my roll groove back and found the best recipe...I have redeemed myself! HA!
