In the kitchen lately …

One of the things I wanted to do before I turn 30 was to get a few dessert dishes that I include to my repertoire of dishes.

Poached pear (with a dollop of ice cream – NOT home made 😦 )

Red wine poached pears

Made using this recipe. As I don’t like mine too sweet, I always adjust the amount of sugar.

Sweet potato casserole

Made using this recipe. Again, I also reduce the amount of sugar in both recipes.

Enjoy!!
