choc mousse copy

Yesterday, we had friends over for ribs, corn on the cob and green beans from the farmer’s market. It was the perfect meal to end Labor Day weekend! I saw this recipe on Food 52 and thought it’d be fun to give it a whirl. I subbed a few ingredients from the original recipe. It was delicious, easy and reminded me of a pot de créme.

Serves 6 to 8

  • ounces bittersweet chocolate (chopped) (I used Lindt Dark Chocolate Sea Salt & a Bittersweet Bar)
  • tablespoons bourbon
  • tablespoons very strong brewed coffee or espresso
  • large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  1. Melt the chocolate, liquor, and coffee together in the microwave for 35 seconds. Stir well once it’s melted. Add the egg yolks in one at a time then add the olive oil using a hand held mixer or wooden spoon.
  2. Start whipping the egg whites and when they begin to stiffen add the sugar. Whip to stiff peaks. Fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate a quarter at a time, thoroughly amalgamating in between additions until all the whites have been folded in. Spoon the mixture into 6 to 8 individual ramekins or one large bowl, whatever you plan to serve it in.
  3. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.  Chill 3 hours then serve.

5 things

pearmund

On Saturday, I spent the day with 14 women, wine tasting our way through Virginia for a bachelorette adventure. Although I’ve lived here for many years, this was a first! Mostly because I work weekends and I hate driving once I’m not working. Silly but that’s how I roll. It was serious fun! My favorite vineyard was Pearmund Cellars (pictured above). Highlight of the day (besides laughing hysterically. these girls are funny) was the “Porn or Nail Polish” game. You’re welcome.

cool mural

I love when homeowners get creative. This incredible mural is near the corner of 9th and N St., NW. Go check it out.

sugar shack donuts

Look at dem donuts! Sugar Shack Donuts opened 1922 9th St, NW on August 19th. Donuts in the ‘hood. Woot.

district cryo

Have we talked about my obsession with Cryotherapy? Cryo is “is a cutting-edge innovation using hyper-cool temperatures to stimulate is a powerful physiological responses and trigger the body’s natural healing processes. These include accelerating healing in soft tissue and joints, reducing inflammation and pain, and boosting metabolism.” I’ve been going to District Cryo at 9th and N St, NW for a year and it’s amazing. It’s helped my with my aches and pains after working out. I highly recommend it. Plus all the cool kids are doing it like the Real Housewives and various professional athletes.

texas heart

On a more serious note, Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc in Texas. To help provide assistance, go to Charity Navigator and donate. There’s a list of charities that are responding to the aftermath of the hurricane.

life via instagram july

Why hello! After a lovely 4th of July at the beach with my family, I’m back in DC and trying to survive the heat.  There’s nothing like showing property in 98 degree heat and humidity.  Uf.

What have you been doing?  Any good vacations coming up?

2125 14th ext

2125 14th St NW #330

1 bed + den + parking

list price | $609,000

sold price | $605,000

I represented the buyer in the purchase of this condo. I’m pleased to announce we negotiated $4,000 off the original list price.  It’s almost never happens in the DC market and I’m thrilled for my client.

2125 14th st lr

This is the 4th time this year I’ve negotiated money off the list price for my buyers.  Does it mean the market is softening?  A little. I think some sellers have dollar signs in their eyes and they’re pricing too high.  It’s a bit of a correction.

2125 14th kit

On the other hand, the last 3 offers I’ve written had multiple offers. In 2 of those situations, the home had over 8 offers! I know..the market here is nuts!

Contact me if you want to buy or sell.  As you can see, I know the ins and outs of the market and I’d love to help you.
