Happy October!! October is by far one of my favorite months of the year. The colors are more brilliant, there is a crispness in the air and I am able to break out all my favorite sweaters. My thoughts increasingly turn toward pumpkin patches, soup making and more reasons to cozy up inside. I had some beautiful pears on hand the other day and decided to turn them into this Harvest Pear Crisp. Add a little vanilla ice cream on top and it is a heavenly way to end dinner time.
