Dear SOS: I am a former California native, having lived in Pasadena for almost 47 years. Our family used to eat at the Lawry’s establishments all of the time. I am trying to find a recipe for the Lawry’s chocolate Kahlua mousse.
It was my family’s favorite dessert, and we often ordered it on birthdays. Well, my 60th birthday is coming up on Aug. 19, and I would love to make this.

Dear Mary: It’s as if Lawry’s took everyone’s favorite flavors and combined them in an easy-to-make dessert, with chocolate, espresso and Kahlua liqueur folded into a mousse that comes together in only 15 minutes. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday, or any holiday.
