For Betsy ☺

Image
I reached into the bag of potatoes and was greeted by this gal! Ha I thought of Betsy immediately! It's been a while since she 'met someone' in her kitchen. :)
Yes, I adore them!! After several weeks of absence they are back... and just as beautiful as ever! And the perky little sparrow is pretty cute too!

Newsboy - His Eye Is On Sparrow - YouTubewww.youtube.com/watch?v=Crq18bnfBpA And a new favorite song to go with the photo.☺ And the moon!
That moon was really cool tonight! Just a 'fingernail' but with the whole moon visible as a shadow? With a planet? and a Star? for company?
Yes, very nifty! Stay warm - and be Blessed! ♥ 


Chocolate Almond Mocha Mousse Tart

Image
Last weekNuts.comasked, "Would I like to createa recipe using almonds or almond flour to promote the health benefits of one of my favorite on-the-go snacks?"

Yes! How could I say no? I love almonds in a lot of things like desserts, salads, snacks, granolas, or just by themselves roasted or raw. They're just yummy. Turns out they are good for you too!

I wanted to keep the recipe simple so I decided to use a shortbread crust highlighting almond flour as the main ingredient and using a mousse to cut down on time in the kitchen. The combination of slightly salty, crumbly crust paired with the sweet mousse is perfect. I kept the mocha flavor very mild to accommodate my husbands taste buds. (he likes the smell of coffee but not the taste) so if you like a chocolate mousse without a mocha flavor this is a good one for you as well.

Crust:
1-1/3 cups Almond Meal(flour)
1 cup all purpose flour
6 Tablespoons cane sugar
½ teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons cold butter
Place all the dry ingredient…
