the secret lives of prothros.

I took a significant blog break to focus on house projects while Evan was out of town on business. When he got home I got to surprise him with a painted master bath, a clear garage, an organized paper filing system, a closet revamp, two clean cars, a few new hangings on the wall (all level-thank you very much), Molly’s new home-sewn dog bed and general clean and organized awesomeness. All in all a great use of time.

But now I’m back to it with some pictures on our delicious dessert from the other week.

This mousse is everything I like in a dessert. Sweet, creamy, not to rich, fruity yummy-ness.

Sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and butter--you already know it will be delicious.

Whisk all the ingedients together over medium high heat until thick.

Little pieces of the egg will cook. Yes--it's gross. Don't freak out, we'll take care of it.

Make an ice bath for the mousse. Basically it's an oreo but the cookies are bowls and the filling is ice and water.

Push the liquid through a fine, mesh sieve thus separating all the icky egg bits. See, I told you not to worry. Silly you.

Take some heavy whipping cream and whip it up.

Fold the whipped cream into the mousse. Folding is all in the wrist....

Pulverize sugar and raspberries in a food preocessor. DRINK THE SWEET NECTAR DIRECTLY OUT OF THE BOWL. Leave enough to garnish the mousse.

No one ever shows the dishes. Here they are. Yes, that is Brad voluntarily doing the dishes. Yes, he's single, ladies. Applications are now being accepted but you will have to pass my very vigorous screening process.

Assemble and savour.

In case you can't tell, we really do.


  1. MMMMM…. can you say SWWM? Absolutely!

  2. YUM…In your rcipe, does it tell you to “drink the sweet nectar out of the bowl?” Cause it should. That would be awesome.
