TFF: Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese and Walnuts
Baby, it’s cold outside!
I woke up to snow yesterday morning. Surprise snow. The best kind.
By the time I got home, it had already melted. I knew I should have stayed home from work and made that snowman.
Anyway, I’ve been craving something “different” lately. I came across these Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese and Walnuts and said “hmmm…”. My interest in this recipe surprised me because while I like pears, I don’t really like blue cheese or walnuts that much.
Blue cheese can be an overpowering taste but the pears knocked the flavor down a few notches. They ended up being a nice compliment to each other. This dish wouldn’t be for everyone I’m sure, even the looks of it might put some people off due to the colors from the blue cheese, but it was great to satisfy whatever strange craving I was having that led me to this recipe.

This is my first post for Tyler Florence Fridays, a group dedicated to sharing their experiences with Tyler Florence’s recipes. Yes, I broke my own rule of not belonging to more than two groups at once, but this one is a good fit for me (and the boyfriend) because I decide what it is I’m making. This will help us keep our resolution this year to make more meals at home.
