Cover of "Every Day Is Saturday" by Sarah Copeland. TNS
In her new cookbook, “Every Day Is Saturday,” Sarah Copeland’s goal is to bring a weekend-cook mentality to weekday meals. Copeland is the former food editor for Real Simple magazine and a nutrition educator. She’s no stranger to a hectic work schedule, so she had to develop strategies for feeding her family all week.
She says this gorgeous make-ahead summer dessert from the book is “technically a semifreddo (an easier homemade ice cream substitute that slices beautifully) — but no one needs to know that.”
RASPBERRY RIPPLE ICE CREAM CAKE
Serves 6 to 8
10 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed (about 1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
Seeds of 1 vanilla bean, scraped
1 cup sugar
Fine sea salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Line the bottom of an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan with waxed paper.
Stir together the cookies and melted butter and set aside. Combine the raspberries, lemon juice and zest in a high-powered blender and puree until completely smooth. Set aside.
Combine the whole eggs, egg yolks, vanilla bean seeds, sugar and a pinch of salt in a heatproof bowl, set over a pot of simmering water so that the bowl doesn’t touch the water, and cook over medium heat, whisking the eggs constantly, until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and beat with an electric mixer until thick and completely cool, 2 to 3 minutes more. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes, depending on the speed of your mixer. Gently fold the egg mixture into the whipped cream, taking care to keep it light and airy. (Take a tiny taste at this point; it’s so delicious!)
Pull out 2 cups of the mixture, put it in a bowl, and fold in the raspberry puree until it is a uniform pink color. Dollop the two mixtures in heaping ladlefuls, alternating vanilla and raspberry cream, into the prepared pan. You can leave it like this, for a more modern look, or use a skewer or a thin knife to streak and marble the two creams together in places.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze, level, until it starts to firm up, about 1 hour. When the semifreddo has set a bit (is not jiggly), sprinkle the buttered chocolate cookie crumbs evenly over the top to make a crust, and press them in just slightly. Freeze until completely solid, at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
To serve the cake, dip an offset spatula into warm water and turn the cake out onto a chilled platter. Slice and serve within 5 minutes; return to the freezer until ready to serve a second round.

Hypothyroidism develops when the thyroid doesn’t make enough hormones. As a result, your metabolism slows down. As thyroid activity slows, the level of T4 in your body decreases, and the level of TSH increases to encourage the thyroid gland to raise T4 production.
Cabbage is part of most of the world's cooking history. Perhaps most famously, it was one of the only sources of sustenance in famine-ravaged Ireland in the mid-19th century.
