Featured Recipe: Pears in Red Wine Sauce
Poached pears in red wine sauce is one of those elegant, compilcated desserts you may never try at home. But using canned pears makes this desseert almost effortless. Canned pears have the exact same texture as poached pears and with a homemade wine sauce, pairs to make an easy and elegant dessert. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
