Savory, Sweet and Tasty

Share it Please
This week I tried two new recipes, one savory, one sweet and both delicious!

The first is a great winter soup with parsnips, apples and potatoes.  It has a smooth, slightly nutty flavor and I could easily have substituted other seasonal root veggies for the parsnips as well.

The second recipe I made for my father-in-law's birthday, a lemon raspberry cheesecake.  I had never made a cheesecake before, mostly because I hadn't gotten around to buying a springform pan.  It turned out remarkably well, kind of a fluffy version rather than a packed, dense cheesecake.  The raspberry compote on top perfectly highlighted the rich lemony flavor of the cake.  The only downside is that I now know how easy it is to make such a decadent and calorie-rich dessert...my willpower will be given quite the exercise!
