HAPPY NEW YEAR!
For the past 3 or 4 years, every time I come home to New York for the holidays, I always seem to take out the Martha Stewart Christmas Cookbook. I have made several of the items over the years but have always wanted to try this one. I thought it would be great for a Christmas night dessert. The problem is, it’s a frozen dessert, and my relatives all live at least 30 minutes away, so I have always just turned the page and looked at other things to try. Well.. this year, my mom had her friends over for a New Years Day luncheon and the lightbulb went off in my head (!), and I thought this would be perfect. After a lunch of an Asparagus and potato frittata, mixed seafood salad, cold jumbo shrimp with caper-lemon mayonnaise, and San-Francisco sourdough rolls, we dug into the gingerbread roll. The cake deluxe, but the filling…Oh my! It is a calvados scented semifreddo that is just heavenly. It was served with a spiced cranberry coulis on the side. I though it would be the perfect ending to celebrate the start of the New Year. And it was.
