Recipes with Pears

Smashed Rutabagas with Ginger-Roasted Pears
Bon Appetit has a recipe that would be lovely on a cold, Winter, day. You will need rutabagas, (peeled and cut into cubes), ginger, Anjou pears, extra-virgin olive oil, sugar, ginger, heavy whipping cream, butter, fresh thyme, and kosher salt. The recipe will make 8 to 10 servings. Rutabagas are root vegetables, and similar to turnips. This would make a alternative to mashed potatoes for dinner.

Pear and Banana Loaf
Have you ever made banana bread? If so, then you won’t have any difficulty with this recipe. You will need ripe bananas, ripe pears, eggs, milk, oil, self raising flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and bicarbonate of soda. I found this recipe on the Some More Please! blog. It is great warm or cold, and is nice with some butter for breakfast.

Almond-Chicken Pear Salad
This sounds so good! The recipe comes from the Pears USA website. It is a nice twist to the typical chicken salad that you find in sandwiches (or all by itself). You will need some chicken breasts, 2 Comice, Anjou, or Bosc USA pears, butter lettuce, toasted and slivered almonds, ginger, mustard, mayonnaise, yogurt, seasoning salt, celery and green pepper. Mix the pears into the salad, and slice up a few to have on the side.

Pear Tart Tatin
You can count on Martha Stewart to teach you how to make a rustic French dessert that includes pears. For this recipe, you will need all-purpose flour, 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3 ounce package), sugar, cider vinegar, unsalted butter, and 3 firm, ripe, Anjou or Bartlett pears. You make the Pear Tart Tatin in a cast-iron or ovenproof non-stick skillet.

Celery Root and Pear Puree Recipe has another exciting alternative to mashed potatoes. You will need 3 pounds of celery root and 2 Bosc pears, a garlic clove, and water. Season the puree with salt and pepper when it is ready. Put it in the microwave to warm the top with browned butter. This would make a good side dish at dinner.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
