Honey and Cinnamon Roasted Pears

Pears are one of my favorite winter fruits. Their season starts in the late fall and runs all the way through spring, and I take every opportunity to enjoy perfectly ripe pears.

Spiced Peaches n’ Cream Bread Pudding

Spiced Peaches n' Cream Bread Pudding

Sometimes I will pick up an extra loaf of bread when I am out shopping for groceries.
