I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Asian Pear Crisp

This is a nice comfort food dessert on a cold winter's day. Serve it plain or topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

3 cups chopped asian pear (you just need 1 pear !)

1 tbsp flour
1/4  cup sugar
1 tsp  cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
pinch of salt

Cut the pear in small pieces as it is quite firm. Toss together with the rest of the ingredients and put in a buttered baking dish, 8 X 8 or similar. 

Use a pastry blender  to cut together:

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsps ground flax (optional)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Sprinkle over top of fruit and press lightly.
Bake for 35 minutes in a 375 F oven.
It smells so good!
