Strawberry Semifreddo….a festive way to celebrate Spring!


Spring is here and flower and food markets are bursting with an array of colors and fragrances so typical of spring. Fruit vendors are patrolling the streets with fresh strawberries and although
I know that strawberries will still get cheaper as we move closer to summer, I could not resist buying a couple of fresh strawberries the other day.

I wanted to try my hand at making semifreddo and after searching the Net for a couple of minutes I found this recipe on Anita’s site called Dessert First.

She adapted the recipe from Sherry Yard’s The Secrets of Baking and I liked the fact that this recipe included cream, meringue and swirls of mascarpone cheese. The result was deliciously creamy and smooth and definitely a recipe that I will try again.

Ps. I tried this recipe again the next day, using 4 ripe kiwi fruit. I love the taste….slightly tart, but still silky and smooth.

On to other important things. If you scroll this page you will find two new widgets in my sidebar. The Garden Village Project widget will take you to our new site called, The Garden Village. Please read about this project and if you can support us, we will be forever grateful…..
The second new widget is that of the Foodie blogroll. I have been part of this wonderful group for a while, but they now have their own site and a brand new widget. If you have a food or recipe blog, take the time to enroll, because it opens your site to so many other foodies and will definitely increase your traffic.

So, I end this post today by wishing all of you in the southern hemisphere a fantastic and colorful Springday!!!(image courtesy of Google)
