County attorney makes cheese houses for Christmas

Through the years, our family has adapted traditional Christmas and New Year traditions.  They slowly change with the changes in our family.

Mike Daly’s special occasion recipe

E-mail Print PDF
I’d like to share my favorite special occasion recipe – Rum Chocolate Mousse. This recipe is modified from an early edition of the “Joy of Cooking” cookbook.

I have been making this for 50 years. Once, while working on a ship in the lower English Channel, I made this for the entire crew.

This is an incredibly smooth, rich dessert that takes about 45 minutes to prepare – with certain precautions as noted below.

Start by stiffly beating two egg whites. Note: be sure the egg beaters are completely dry or the eggs will not whip.

Separately, Whip one cup of whipping cream to make two cups of whipped cream

Cook over very low heat until dissolved, but not brown in color

The art market was a chance for local artists to...
