(This dessert is very sweet)
Last Christmas, I recieved the book 'Under the Tuscan Sun', by Frances Mayes. Yes, it does take me a while to read a book. I spend more time with my camera and uploading than reading these days.
Anyhow, the book is a wonderful - magical read. In the book are a number of great recipes I am anxious to try out. Poached pears was one such recipe that we enjoyed. It involved pears, (of course) and wine, I chose Louis Jadot Beaujolais. What could be better?! Look out Emeril, Lidia Bastianich, Giada De Laurentiis, and and Mario Batali, I'm in the kitchen! I apologize for these indoor food shots, I've been stuck indoors these past few days.
