Triple Chocolate Mousse Recipe

This whimsical chocolate dessert marks the onset of the holiday season. The sweet treat consists of espresso dark chocolate, orange and salted caramel milk chocolate layers. If you omit the garnish, you'll notice that the dessert is egg-free and gluten-free. 

Having an almost 3-year old at home is a constant reminder that I need to get prepared to celebrate Halloween. We've gone through so many costume ideas already, I wonder which one Aria will finally agree on when the times comes! For this dessert, I prepared three different flavors of chocolate mousse. The mousse required very few ingredients: milk, whipping cream, butter, sugar and of course chocolate (the star of this sweet treat!).

Pandan Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Cookies (Video)

No one can argue with the fact that American cookies are the best. When I lived in Paris and came to the US, I kept bringing a ton of American cookies home to my friends and relatives. My childhood friend Alexia, who came to visit us this month, came home with 8 dozen of American cookies to gift to her relatives!

Cookies are always a nice treat no matter the age of the cookie monster or the occasion being celebrated. Several years, I came up with this new recipe for homemade cookies with an exotic twist  (pandan extract) for a change and they've become my signature cookies for special occasions. Follow the instructions from this video and you'll have our family's favorite French-Asian fusion cookies.

Pumpkin Pasta Sauce Recipe

We spent a pretty low-key weekend, which is just what we needed after being so busy with holiday activities. I had time to do my favorite activity: cooking! I planned on making a fairly healthy meal of bow tie pasta covered in sauce.

I used fresh pumpkin and boiled it until very soft. I love all kinds of squash, including pumpkin, when they're in season. I almost never use the canned version, even for baking, unless I'm really running out of time. 

For better visual appeal, I added finely-cut French green beans and sprinkled the top of the pasta dish with a little grated Dubliner for extra nuttiness.

Halloween Party Food Ideas

Halloween is a few days away. My husband Lulu is going to be Batman, I'll put together a Robin costume for myself using a green skirt, red top, yellow belt and a black mask (I'm still not sure if people will know who I am) and Aria is going to be a white tiger. Since Halloween is going to be on a school night, we're not having a party and I'm not planning on cooking anything ghoulishly green or scary.

Nevertheless, we will definitely bake a lot. I re-created my delicious green pandan madeleine cookies and a few witch finger cookies. I've compiled a few other suggestions if you're planning Halloween-themed party food. 

I love Halloween; it's an extra special holiday for Lulu and meI. We got married the day before Halloween and we'll be celebrating our 9th anniversary. Time flies when you’re having fun!
