Merry Christmas, one and all!
Wow, that sounds soooooo good. I need to start pulling together a menu - want to cook a nice dinner for the evening of Jan 1 when Soren gets home from Japan. I promised him maple syrup creme brulee. Gotta figure out what first and second courses would nicely compliment that ... hmm
Ooh.. goat cheese cheesecake. What form of goat chese did you use? :)
Laura Chenel. You want something pretty mild for this one. It also has mascarpone and regular cream cheese in it.
Though I did have a humboldt fog cheesecake at Azie on Christmas Eve that makes me want to try something more adventurous...
Merry Christmas to all Borogoves!
