This Week's Inspiration: Pears

"There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Pears make fall all that much happier for me. Their soft sweet interior, smooth, juicy. Aaaah.
My boys have been eating them as fast as I cut out the tiny cores.
We need to go buy more. Boxes and boxes. 
Because not only do we want more for fresh eating, there are a plethora of recipes I'd like to try:

Coconut Pancakes with Vanilla Pear Sauce from This Can't Be Vegan
Pear and Chocolate Chip Muffins from Jo Cooks
Apple and Pear Crisp from M is for Mommy
Bittersweet Chocolate and Pear Cake from Smitten Kitchen
Vegan Pear Cake from Eggless Cooking
Kale, Spinach and Pear Smoothie from Joy the Baker
Ever wondered if pears are really really good for you?

And because {I think} you really need a little more pear love this week:
