Pears, pears, pears! I’ve overrun with pears thanks to my CSA shares this fall. They have been absolutely delicious but more than I can eat.
This recipe was simple and resulted in a moist, delicious bread great for a breakfast treat with a cup of hot coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Due to family tastes, I omitted the nuts, but it would be delicious with walnuts or pecans!
In a bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; stir into the egg mixture just until moistened. Toss pears with lemon juice. Stir pears and walnuts into batter (batter will be thick).
Spoon into two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves.
Trader’s Joe’s finally came to Denver last year and what fun we’ve had exploring their many wonderful products. During one of my trips, they were tasting their Cruciferous Crunch Salad with mixed nuts and Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. Yummy in the tummy!
The recipe is so simple, it doesn’t need one. Chop the contents of the salad mix. Chop about 1 cup of mixed nuts (or nuts of your choice), and top with Trader Joe’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette dressing. Toss and serve immediately.
It’s simple, delicious, and good for you. What’s not to like?
Dump Cake is NOT a low cal dessert but it is easy and delicious. My buddy, Jan, again shared this recipe with me. Somehow this recipe escaped me all these years and I wanted to research it’s origin. Research points to the original Heloise for this recipe, although I couldn’t confirm nor deny this fact.
What I can confirm…this is a decadent pleasure to enjoy ‘once in a blue moon.’
1 can (21 ounce) cherry pie billing (or apple)
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick margarine
1 cup chopped pecans
Place pie filling and pineapple in 9×13″ cake pan.
A dear friend introduced me to this dish a few years ago. The asparagus is elegant enough for a nice dinner party yet casual enough for an appetizer or family side dish. People will ‘ooh and aah’ at the presentation and keep coming back for more.
We are coming into fresh asparagus season and a perfect time to try this recipe.
This dish is best served fresh from the oven. Enjoy this favorite dish enjoyed by family and friends.
