Why I (And So Many Other Moms) Suffer From Dinnerphobia

The time is usually around 4:45 in the afternoon, in cities and towns all across the country, when, almost like clockwork, theres a universal shift in consciousness that happens in the psyche of mothers in kitchens everywhere.

It usually starts sometime after our kids get home from school, as the afternoon starts to wane, and the high from their granola bar and string cheese has worn off.

I Make Mirror Glazed Mousse Cakes

I make one of the most popular mirror glazed mousse cakes. It takes three days to make one mousse cake due to very unique and rare techniques used to produce them. They are made of natural ingredients, real cream, milk, fruits and berries, premium chocolates and top-class biscuits. It is all made from scratch. If it is made correctly and covered with mirror glaze, which is also based on chocolate, then you can even see your reflection in the cake.

It’s a simple painting, unframed, depicting a pretty scene along northwest France’s Brittany Coast.
Beneath a dramatic blue sky with wisps of white clouds receding into space, two gentle arms of land reach in from either side of the frame to embrace a placid bay. A solitary speck of boat bobs on the water, tacking into a gentle breeze with its single white sail.
