Sunday Dinner

Lemon Yogurt Mousse with Blueberry Sauce


Sunday dinners are a little different now.  My son, Jack, is a recent Mizzou graduate and getting ready to move into his own world in Madison, WI.  My daughter, Emma, is finishing up her last year at Tulane and my other daughter, Mabelle is sixteen. Therefore she is barely seen or heard from.  So, it is pretty much me and my husband and the two black black furry creatures lurking under the table at dinner time.  I'll have to fill you in on our newest family member another time.  On to the menu and recipe...

It is HOT here in Illinois!! I mean, it seems like it was 50° F just a couple of weeks ago and now the heat index is over 100° F. 🔥 That means, it is a "no oven or stove" Sunday dinner. Ok, I did turn the stove on for a few minutes for the blueberry sauce and the gougères were in the freezer; BONUS!


The feature of tonight's menu is the dessert, Lemon Yogurt Mousse.  I like to think of it is as a no-bake, cold summer soufflé. A little bit of the fresh blueberry sauce is spooned into the bottom of each ramekin and then the light and airy mousse is spooned on top of the sauce. There is a nice tang from the addition of Greek yogurt to the mousse and the lemon adds a zesty (pun intended) punch.  As for the Greek yogurt, I have had equally good results using whole, 2% or 0%.  It just depends on your preference.  I used 0% for tonight.  The mousse is served in 4-ounce ramekins, so it is the perfect amount of sweetness to end our dinner on a hot summer day.  Happy cooking!

UPDATE!!

Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Salve, Guten Tag, Goddag, Dzien dobry, Konnichiwa...What I am trying to say is 

HI!!! I MISSED YOU!!!

I'm gonna keep this update short because if I had to say everything I wanted to about being MIA these last few years, I'd be writing about it for another three years.  In a nutshell, life, my part-time job and Covid-19 kind of sucked the life out of me.  But things are looking up and I am pushing up my sleeves ready to go (sort of).

My main issue after being gone is that almost everything has changed tech-wise. So, I kind of feel like I am starting from the beginning. Ugh! Blogger has changed, EOS utility has changed, Photoshop has changed, Google sites where I posted my printable recipes has changed and my printable recipes have been scrambled. So, if you try and print a recipe, you'll get a 404 error (I have no idea what that means)!  Also, those of you that have subscribed via e-mail, well, Feedburner dropped blogger, so I had to switch all of your e-mails over to follow.it (it is a great tool to follow all of your favorite sites in one news feed). As you can read, it's been a bit of a nightmare on my end, but I will persevere.  

This labor of love is also in need of a serious make-over, like an updated picture of me?? I am still ok with the layout if you are. I don't want millions of ads in your face or have my site difficult to navigate. I am just really excited to get back and share some recipes. I like to keep things simple😊.

I thank you for your comments, e-mails, and most importantly, your patience while I have been away from the computer. It means the world to me! Happy cooking and you'll hear from me soon! ~Nicole
