Pears for the Holidays

courtesy of
Pumpkin and apple may be the standard stand-by when it comes to holiday desserts, but this is a great time of year for pears. Our friends at USA Pears have developed a great website for all things pears-- info on how to pick a good pear, how to cook with them, how to "pair" them with wine and cheese, and even how to decorate with them. Head over to to find all this great information.

For those of you planning out holiday menus, here's an easy but elegant idea for dessert -- Caramelized Pears with Hazelnuts. They serve it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but we also thought it could be an interesting appetizer served alongside a dollop of goat cheese.
