Head right out to the porch, bare feet and all. Don't forget to grab a spoon. Kick back and relax while you enjoy a guilt free, Low Cal Peach Mousse. Who could resist the flavor of Peaches and Cream?

Low Cal Peach Mousse

I challenge you to deviate from your old fattening menus and adopt a healthy food menu...TODAY! Start by selecting low fat, low sodium, sugar free ingredients and revamp your basic daily recipes. It may take a minute for your taste buds to adjust but your body will reward you for making healthier choices.
In the Kitchen
By now my followers know 3 things:
1- I do not spend hours in the kitchen
2- I'm frugul
3- I do a lot with instant pudding and jell-o
I'm a bachelorette with an interest in Recipe Development and I love to entertain. Presentation is everything. I deplore food waste because its money down the drain and I believe good food is healthy food. Gelatin and Instant Pudding mixes are so inexpensive with such a variety of flavors and so many ways to use them both. Both have sugar free options which I think have more intense flavor. The sweet is in the flavor, so you really won't miss the sugar. There are recipes on the Jello-O and Instant Pudding boxes and you can improvise with fruits, yogurt, whipped toppings, juices, nuts and pie crust, etc. Let your imagination fly.
The combinations are endless.
Ella Fitzgerald - Summer Time, from Porgy and Bess. Ella's music is trendless and timeless. I don't even try to sing along. I just enjoy the moment. This is music from my roots and perfect for a warm spring evening. Dessert it served. Please do not disturb.
Serve chilled in cocktail glasses or dessert cups. Be sure to check back at the end of the month for my blog post with a local Executive Chef.
Enjoy your Mother's Day.
Look Good, Cook Good and Entertain in Style
