Ginger just might be my favorite flavor on the planet.  It’s excellent in both sweet and savory dishes.  You can enjoy it ground, pickled, candied, or freshly grated.  I’ll take an ice cold ginger ale over cola any day.

One of my first restaurant memories was way back when I was just 3 years old and my family took a trip to Aruba.  I remember sitting in the restaurant and my parents were both ordering with the waiter.  When it came my turn and he asked me what I would like for dinner my response was “Chocolate Mousse.”  I have no idea where that came from, but I totally support it!

Life is short.  Eat dessert first.  Or just have chocolate mousse for dinner.

I am excited to share my first recipe post from my new home in New York City!  Needless to say, my kitchen is in shambles right now.  Pots and pans are everywhere and the cabinets are far from organized.
