Yep – we’re having a party! A Blog party.
What the heck is that? Well, it’s kind of like those progressive dinner parties we used to have where you would have one course at each house. You and your neighbors would hop from house to house. Except with this party, we’re hopping from blog to blog and seeing what everyone is about, getting to know new people, and making friends.
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
It’s my first time. At least you don’t have to clean the house. I know, I know – my house is always clean. Just sayin…
And since its a mom bloggers party (sorry guys) I figured we needed a yummy indulgence – ready for this?
Berries and Ricotta Mousse
1 cup light ricotta cheese
2 Tbsp. orange liqueur
1/2 teas. finely grated orange peel
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup fresh raspberries or strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blackberries
1 teas. lemon juice
1/2 to 1 teas. sugar
Whisk together ricotta, 1 Tbsp. orange liqueur and orange peel. Cover and chill for at least an hour.
Mix berries, lemon juice and the other Tbsp. orange liqueur. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Put a scoop of the berries in a dessert dish. Top with a scoop of the ricotta. Sprinkle with a touch of sugar, or drizzle with honey. don’t worry, its healthy, and low cal! Pour yourself a glass of chilled rose’ and come back and blog away!
And since you’ll be so busy blogging – you might need some quick dinner ideas. Here’s a few –

And did I forget to mention – there’s prizes? Click on the brown banner above to be whisked away to the details –
My favorite prize pick? Definitely the HomeGoods $100 Gift Card! Oh man would I love that. Other wise, I tend to be practical – office max, amazon, and target would all be useful. I don’t have small children – so many of the prizes would not be useful here. But if you have small children there’s a lot of great prizes that I’m sure you’ll love!
Now go meet some people and have fun!
