This is a perfect recipe for these dates in which everything are good purposes, diets that start and remorse for Christmas feasts. It is also a super easy recipe to make, it really has absolutely no complications. A cute and light dessert for using in any occasion, do not tell me that this mousse served in these little jars is not a cutie. And to make it a tad healthier, the orange curd does not have any butter! What you have heard, curd recipe without saturated fats and lactose-free!
Well, we must take advantage of the fact that we are just in oranges season and use as many as we can. That, and also that you can not ask me for much more right now. I really hope this recipe suits you because I do not have time for much more complicated things. And let’s be honest, an orange mousse is not the most innovative recipe in the world, but at least with the touch of curd made with oil Olive I try to compensate it.
The only things I could tell you now are about boring work. Well no, because my work is not boring at all, I can not complain about that. But since I returned from the Christmas holidays, I working 10 and 12 hour a day, also working weekends … basically, what it would be like to have no life.
Although, as this job really motivates me it is not a big problem for me. What does bother me a lot is not having time for the blog, you can not imagine how much I miss baking cupcakes or a layer cake! But they will come back, I promise!
As I can not tell you anything cool, nor anything very special about the recipe, because it has no particularity that what you already mentioned in the intro. Well, let’s talk about the holidays, ok? How were your holiday? What did you get as Christmas presents? Leave me comments that I’d love reading them 🙂
It has been very good for me to rest two weeks at home, good food and good weather was all I needed to fully charge the batteries. Going back to the “north pole” then it was hard, but I feel like new right now. And Santa was very nice with my presents, he got me a lot of cool gifts. Among my favorites, my baby unicorn that is born from a trunk and grows as you water it. Yes, I have not smoked narcotic substances, I got a unicorn that grows when you water it. I have posted some photos on Instagram Stories in case you do not believe me. And yes, my mental age of 5 year old kid, but I don’t care 🙂
I am going to leave you with this great classic mega easy and without saturated fats or lactose recipe. I am sure that you are going to try it, the same thing always happens with these kind of recipes, I do not like to post them because they seem boring to me, but then they are the ones having the most visits and the ones that you try the most.
