I think in one summer I could eat my weight in ice cream. When the temperature hits 90˚ and all I want to do is be cool, ice cream is where I turn.
I hate to even admit this though- I get tired of eating ice cream. I know, it sounds like blasphemy. Who could actually get tired of ice cream?
I think it may because because I crave something lighter but still cool and delicious. When I saw this lemon mousse, I knew I found what I was looking for.
I preface this by saying I have gotten in a bad habit of recording food network shows. It’s not bad enough that I watch food network all the time, I have to record them so I can watch the shows I really want to watch at any time of the day. My favorite show? Ina. I love her food and I just love all the tips you can collect in one show.
Needless to say when I watched the show with this lemon mousse, I was a possessed girl. All I wanted to do was run into the kitchen and whip up a batch of this lemon mousse. This mousse was every bit as good as it looked on t.v. Light, lemony, delicious- I couldn’t have asked for more.
Find the recipe here on the Food Network Site. I have to say, this makes a lot. I cut the recipe down by a third and still had plenty of mousse that could easily be dessert for four people (even though two of us managed to devour the entire batch…)
