Easy Chocolate Mousse

In one of my “Genius Gone Wrong” notebooks I have a scribble about making an easy chocolate mousse. People love chocolate mousse, it’s a classic that’s here to stay and it never goes out of style.

Oma’s Party Crackers

One of the best parts of being a kid is the Holiday’s. Luckily I grew up with a big family. They were fun, had great hearts (I mean that in the kind way. In the healthy way we have terrible hearts) awesome, always down for a good time and they loved to eat.

Nana’s Fancy Chocolate Pudding

Every semester while I was attending a very prestigious community college back in Ohio I would change my major.  “What are you this semester?” my mom would say with a smug look on her face and holding a cup of coffee.  “Communications!” I would say all excited.  She wasn’t as excited as I was, in fact, she would give me her “where did I go wrong face?” and walk away.

Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

I’ve noticed over the years that I am slowly turning into my parents and I got to tell you.  I love it.  I can’t think of two better souls to take after.  My folks are the most simple, honest, hard working, loving and arms wide open accepting people I’ve ever met.
