Eggless Chocolate Mousse

We’re gaga in my house for this Eggless Chocolate Mousse. So much so, I guarantee that if I made it 365 days a year my kids would never get sick of it. Made with semi sweet chocolate chips, organic whipped cream and a touch of cinnamon (which gives it the flavor of good Mexican chocolate), not only is this chocolate mousse creamy, light and totally decadent, it’s one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made ....more

It’s always a ton of fun eating what the chefs make for us (some recipes being a lot better than others), but after a long day of shooting all I generally want is something simple and heartwarming.

Last summer the heat in Los Angeles was so incredibly oppressive we ended up drinking these Strawberry Pomegranate Slushies non-stop. I would get out of the car to pick up the kids after school and just start sweating. I wasn’t even doing anything beyond walking and just dripping ....more
