I am ALL about Fall in Texas. Can you blame me? Our Texas summers are brutal, so any drop in the temperatures has me pulling out all my pretty sweaters and testing recipes with all the yummy flavors of fall.
My little gals love pears, so once they hit the produce aisle I’m all over them. Diced into oatmeal, topped with cheese or drizzle with honey – they enjoy pears and I’m all for it.
Do you know what else pairs perfectly with pears? Cinnamon. Cinnamon adds warmth to any dish but combining pears with cinnamon screams fall.
Once the temperatures drop I keep my fridge stocked with cinnamon simple syrup for my morning coffee, afternoon tea, and pro supuesto my cocktails.
