Hello Whipperberry friends! I'm so happy to be back over here again! I hope your winter is sailing along smoothly…I know it's been a snowy one for many of us. Which leaves us dreaming of sunny warm days, flip flops and time on the deck! I know I sure am…winters here are looooong.
And a funny thing happens to me right about now in the doldrums of winter…I start craving lemons. Every single year. There is something so summery and refreshing and inspiring about lemons don't you think? It makes me want to put lemons in ALL the things! Lemon loaves, lemon tarts, lemonade, even lemons at dinner!
So when the lemon urge struck once again this week, I made an Easy Lemon Mousse.
This is so simple to make – I can't even tell you. And you know what, I bet it would be good with any kind of citrus fruit…oranges or grapefruits or limes. Hmmm I just might have to try a different combo!
