Pears with Raspberry Sauce
This tastes totally decadent, like something you’d eat in an expensive restaurant, yet it’s healthy & easy to make. It makes a wonderful breakfast, anytime snack or healthy dessert.
Serves: 2 to 4
2 ripe Bartlett pears (skin should just be starting to turn yellow)
Juice from 1/4 of an organic lemon (approx 2 tsp)
1/2 cup frozen whole red raspberries, thawed (takes about 1 hour) – plus 8 extra for serving
2 Medjool dates, pitted & chopped (see Tip# 1)
2 tsp pomegranate blueberry juice
1. Cut pears in half lengthwise, peel & core. Place them in a glass pie plate or small shallow baking dish & drizzle with lemon juice.
2. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when they’re soft & you see some liquid in the bottom of the plate.
3. Using a slotted spoon; remove pears to your serving dishes, reserving the liquid.
4. In a blender or bullet; add the 1/2 cup raspberries, dates, pomegranate/blueberry juice & all the liquid from the cooked pears. Blend until smooth.
5. Top pears with raspberry sauce. Garnish each pear half with 2 whole raspberries & serve immediately.
Tips & Suggestions
1. Medjool dates are larger than regular dates & have a magnificent creamy caramel taste to them. You can find them in the produce section of most larger supermarkets.
I have done a video of my Marinara Sauce recipe! Take a look!

We needed a quick meal and I hadn’t had spaghetti in a while so it was obviously time. This necessitated a choice. Marinara sauce and meatballs or meat sauce? Why not something in between? I made a nice marinara sauce and cooked small meatballs in the sauce. Welcome to Miniball Spaghetti. Continue reading Miniball Spaghetti
In a prior post I tried Rufus Teague Whiskey Maple Barbecue Sauce as a mop at the end of a basic chicken thigh cook. As I said in that post, there are two tests for a barbecue sauce, a mop at the end of a cook and as a glaze that is cooked on. I made some basic smoked ribs in this cook to try the sauce as a glaze that is cooked on. Continue reading Rufus Teague Whiskey Maple Ribs
You’ll note there wasn’t any posts for awhile. I have been ill with a terrible cold that has lasted for 10 days and isn’t completely gone. I was not totally idle. In the last couple of days, my brother and his wife came to visit for a couple of days so I had to do some cooking. It was all on the easy side. Continue reading Easy Meat Sauce
The term barbecue sauce has come to mean a sweet ketchup based sauce. There is nothing wrong with that kind of sauce, they are one of the main ingredients in Kansas City Ribs. However, there are so many different barbecue sauces from all over the world. There are mustard, white, vinegar, hoisin and many others. Continue reading Molasses Mustard Q Sauce
I have posted my Marinara Sauce recipe previously. I really like it but I am addicted to trying to make something a little better every time I make it. Sometimes it is “interesting” and some time it works. This time I decided to try adding some bacon to my Marinara Sauce. Continue reading Smoky Marinara Sauce
