Baked Pear with Red Wine Glaze


I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut with having my raspberries for Date Night desserts.  Judging by the constant sale on them at the local Publix, you’d think they were in season all year long!  But it’s time to force myself to start exploring something new for desserts.  So for the most recent Date Night, I still stayed with the theme of roasted fruits & ice cream by having a roasted bosc pear with a red wine glaze.  While I usually associate pears with a fall dessert, this one will probably make it’s way into my spring repertoire quite a few more times!

Smoothie: Tempo Run

The Tempo Run is a delightfully refreshing smoothie perfect for replenishing your body’s fuel after pushing yourself to the next level. This well balanced blend of pomaceous (does that word totally rock or what?!) and citrus in which I’ve added oatmeal to give a soluble fiber boost.

  • 1 Apple, quartered & seeded
  • 1 Pear, quartered & seeded
  • 1 Orange, peeled
  • 1 Banana, peeled (preferably frozen)
  • 2 spoonfuls of Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1/2 can pineapple Juice
  • Protein powder (optional)
  • 1/4 C oatmeal (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a blender (you’ll need once with a some oomph to emulsify an apple and pear) and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a frozen banana, you’ll want to add some ice if you prefer your smoothies cold (which I do!). This recipe makes one excellent large smoothie or enough for two medium sized ones.
