Chocolate Cherry Mousse

"This is so incredibly easy. I saw the recipe on the lid of a Cool Whip container. It's a real lite and fluffy dessert that tops off a heavy meal. Kids love it."

Hello from Athens, PA. Originally from Binghamton, NY, hubby and I moved to Ripley, West Virginia in 2011. Our youngest daughter (and mamma to our five grandchildren) lives in Waverly, NY and decided it was time for us to "move back up north to be near the grands." She had a point, so in October of 2016 we moved to Athens. I worked in clerical/secretarial positions in New York State for 30 years before retiring in 2003. Married since 1976, DH and I have been through the war and back in our 41 years together. Now, we're as comfortable with each other and our life together as a pair of well-worn slippers. We have 3 adult children, 5 grandchildren, and a Cockapoo named Sophie Marie. I'm a Certified Lay Minister with American Baptist Churches USA, and just completed a three year course of study from the West Virginia Baptist School of Christian Studies earning a Diploma in Pastoral Ministry. I am passionate about my faith, hope and trust in God. Proverbs 3:5 keeps me grounded. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." I'm happiest when I'm free to worship God in spirit and in truth, unhindered by man-made boundaries. Writing creatively and a gift for music, especially singing, are two ways in which I seek to understand, glorify, and praise God for the many blessings of my life. I love: the color green, forests, and long, brown, pine needles; rustic homes and fireplaces; sticking my hands and feet in a cold, clear creek. Children. I love witnessing the innocence of children and grieve when that is taken from them. I have a special place in my heart for the elderly, and I enjoy visiting with them. I find myself humbled and grateful by the life experiences they are so willing to share. I used to bake and cook a lot; but now, arthritis in my hands (especially my thumbs) and feet as well as Fibromyalgia make for less "kitchen time." Not a good thing when you enjoy cooking. Now I look for simple and not too time-consuming recipes that still say "I love you." I do continue to make halupki, lasagna, and a couple of other time-consuming recipes (although it really tires me out); but, the happy "thank yous" from others makes the pain more tolerable. Besides, cooking is about love and pleasing others...not pain.
