No question where I am this week!


Here’s a hint – I’m not on Santorini! If you hear hoofbeats… (grin)

The food is awesome… this poached pear “appetizer” with blue cheese and walnuts, well…


Pretty simple really, just poach the pears in port and sugar, arrange on a bed of baby greens dressed with a raspberry vinaigrette, and top with blue cheese and walnuts… but I wouldn’t have come up with it on my own!

Consider this post to be an appetizer as well… more specifics next week (assuming i don’t get run over by a bicycle!!) once I’m back at my desk and not pecking away at my phone!

Ahhh, mmmmm, vacation!!



  1. Belgium and now Holland – sounds like a a great trip! Looking forward to hearing more when you are back. Enjoy the rest of the holiday and have a safe journey home 🙂

  2. It does look like a great trip and a delicious appetizer for your posts next week. Enjoy the holiday!

  3. That pear recipe is fabulous. I wouldn’t have come up with it either, so thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh wow.. that does look gtreat, we are picking our pears right now.. c

  5. Hope you are having a great time. I know you’re loving the food.

  6. OMG! That looks and sounds wonderful, thank you and welcome home.
