IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

With Easter a couple of weeks away, I want to have something new, fun and delicious on our dinner menu. A new appetizer, is a great place to start, don’t you think?

Mousse of Cantaloupe. I can hear you now, What? Did she say mousse? If that did not stop you, reading the recipe definitely would. So, before you go running away in the opposite direction, I am inviting your creative and adventurous side to come out and be open about this.

It all started with a recipe from an old Italian magazine and I modified it until it took a life of it’s own. I must say, I have not stop eating it, and since I made it a few times to get it where I wanted to taste , I am completely in love with it and so excited to share it with the world.

One little bit of caution, it is rich and a little bit goes a long way.
