September is Here and with that comes...Comfort Food!

Welcome September! Can you believe it that the summer is coming rapidly to a close?! Did you get all your BBQ’s, summer parties, beach visits, and summer reading checked off your ‘How to Spend your Summer Days’ list? It has been such a phenomenal summer of good activity for us. We did have some lows with our kiddos sick with a summer flu while at their grandparent’s house in CT, and a bout of poison ivy before sail camp was to start, and topped off with a dog bite, but other than those incidents we had a beautiful summer being back in New England with our family and friends.  Our boys learned to sail and crab, and we enjoyed our summer living in Fort Adams to the full extent with these amazing coastal views.

In the Kitchen with David Lebovitz and I

In the Kitchen with David Lebovitz and I

Oh hello, so glad you stopped by!  Did you want to see the final pictures from the chocolate mousse I attempted to make? I have unstuck myself from the hardened caramelized spoons and cleaned up the floor of sticky golden caramel to now sit down and write about David Lebovitz’s dreamy ‘Salted Butter Caramel Chocolate Mousse’. I love reading cookbooks, and thinking if I ever have all the ingredients I need I would love to make recipes like this one. Well, this week the lovely Butter Cuisine’s Brian and Lori collaborated with us and made a Sea Salted Butter. It is fantastic! They were kind to stock our market table to share with customers and I was able to bring a butter roll home. Normally, I would buy a baguette and marry the 2 up and perhaps, maybe make a salad on the side. But, not this time. I took out my David Lebovitz cookbook and started to flip through the gorgeous matte pages until my eyes fell upon the perfect recipe to use with Butter Cuisine’s Sea Salt Butter and our flaky Newport Sea Salt - this heavenly chocolate mousse that would use both of our ingredients and use up our heavy cream in the fridge and make for a nice solo dinner for me…I mean ahem, dessert to share with Matt and our boys.
