Autumn Pear Inspiration: Upside Down Cake
Oh my gosh, this is a keeper, and Lindsey Strand totally has me in the palm of her hand wanting to make this pear upside down cake!!! I love that we’ll bake it right in the cast iron skillet!
Before tobacco was introduced to Europe? Pear leaves were smoked.
Thinking about dessert got me thinking ‘but what the heck am I making for dinner tonight?’ Since my tastebuds are craving a comforting shrimp and pasta dish…maybe you too need a quick and easy recipe that won’t require slaving over a hot stove babying a fancy sauce?
BTW, no pears in this baby, but poached ones on the side could be satisfying.
If you’re serious about your boscs, and you want pears for dinner or an appetizer when entertaining, here’s a yummy pear pizza prospect from bygabriellaco:

I shared my recipe for pear apple crumble here, and I like to make mine in this dish which also works for a ton of different casseroles and one-dish wonders:
Can pears really grow to be the size of a newborn baby? Yes! An atago pear grown in Japan by JA Aichi Toyoto Nashi Bukai was the heaviest on record at 6 lbs. 8 oz!

Anjou Pear Balsamic
Here’s a delicious anjou pear balsamic from Italy (so important to read the fine print when you’re buying oil and vinegar and you want the good stuff from Italy!) to liven up dishes in fall.
Go head and use it in place of regular vinegar on salads, in dressings and marinades, and as a finishing touch on roasted chicken.
Do pork chops or pork roasts sizzle yer bacon in fall? Brush this yum on pork as a glaze, or drizzle it over hard cheeses. If you’re feelin saucy — try a splash on vanilla ice cream!
I love how a good balsamic wakes up an ordinary salad…need an epic bowl for the job?
Fresh or not real pears will look sweet in the bowl when not in use.
Pear Recipe in a French Cookbook
While Pinterest is packed with pear recipes, I still love rollin’ old school with an old fashioned cookbook! This one by Georgeanne Brennan has our name written all over it with its rustic French style (a fabulous salad recipe with arugula, PEAR, and shaved parmesan) and ideas for casual meals.
Here is another new cookbook I own by Laura Washburn Hutton you might like for fall and winter. Just the thought of a one-pot meal brings such comfort in these weary times!
But are you still thinking pears are too ho hum? Because there are more than a few ways to enjoy them…ever spiralize your fresh produce?

They buy art made by their friends and prefer pre-loved, comfy furniture or cast-offs. A rustic farm table that gets better with dents and scratches feels friendlier than a formal heirloom to them. Like other Millenials I know, they thrift for vintage accessories that make them smile rather than to be cool or score killer vignettes on IG.
Happy Autumn, Friends
