Chocolate mousse .. and a giveaway






I had made some chocolate mousse before, but at home the kids said this is the best and we can believe because they tasted everything:)
When they arrive sometimes at night, they go direct to the kitchen and see what I made!
Sometimes I feel afraid make something dont like, but still love I cook!

  4. HOLA AMIGA, SE VE INCREÍBLE, NO CREO QUE ESTÉN EQUIVOCADOS TUS HIJOS, LOS HIJOS SON EXIGENTES Y NO DEJAN PASAR NI UNA! TODO PUEDE DEPENDER DE UN BUEN CHOCOLATE, ACABO DE COMPRAR EL DE MARCA O"VALORO" QUE LO HE VISTO MENCIONADO EN BLOGS ESPAÑOLES, NO LO HABÍA VISTO ANTES, O QUIZÁS NO ME HABÍA FIJADO, ESPERO QUE VALGA LA PENA, POR QUE BARATO NO ES. BESITOS

  58. Querida Gloria.

    Tanto tiempo sin saber de ti. Deseaba pasar a verte y ver todo lo que has hecho este tiempo y saber qué tal van las cosas por ahí.
    Besos enormes y ojalá nos podamos conocer algún día. Conocer del verbo encontrarnos en directo físicamente porque conocer, del verbo encontrarnos, lo hemos hecho hace tiempo.

    Me quedo a dar una vuelta por tus fantásticas recetas y preciosas puestas en escena.

      Si vieras qué alegría cuando me lo encuentro por la ciudad!. Eso sí, nunca nos hablamos, sólo nos miramos y yo le guiño un ojo. Todavía no es capaz de perder su "anonimato". Eso y alguna conversación nocturna me permiten saber cómo anda.
