For over two weeks, I’ve had a dozen pears staring at me each time I open the fridge.
My father-in-law gave them to us, but since I don’t tend to eat pears (more of a berries-kind-of-gal), I just left them believing that my husband would eat them eventually.
But no, not the case!
Knowing that I needed to eat them soon, but not having a clue about what to do with them, I turned to Google to give me my marching (or cooking) orders.
After diving into a recipe rabbit-hole for 30 minutes, I finally decided that baking them would be the simplest option. Found a lovely but easy recipe that involved cinnamon and maple syrup, and decided to throw on some pistachios and coconut yogurt that had a looming expiry date.
The result: simple pleasure at its best!
