This post was supposed to be a soup recipe but the weather changed here is San Diego. The soup recipe also had pears from Stemilt Growers in it but we went from cold and rainy to sunny and warm. I couldn’t bring myself to cook soup on such a nice day. I needed something cold and refreshing like this Cucumber Pear Juice.

I still love my Breville juicer that I got last year. If you’re got enough room to store a juicer in your home, then I highly recommend them. I enjoy fresh vegetable juices more than I thought I would. I always add a little bit of fruit or something on the sweet side like carrots to make the juice slightly more interesting. Fresh juice is so much better for you than what you buy in the stores. I’d rather drink juice where I know it’s 100% from fruit and vegetables not chemicals or sugar. If you like making your own juice try my Sweet Beet Juice or Fruity Green Juice recipes as well.

Rosemary Pear Sparkler

The holidays are officially over but I’m still celebrating hence the Rosemary Pear Sparkler. It’s a slightly savory and sweet champagne cocktail that’s perfect for celebrating or just because it’s Wednesday.

The holidays always sneak up on me. By the time I got into the rhythm of the season, and developed some great recipes, it was over. I just ran out of time to post them all. I’ve got a Coco-Matcha Truffle recipe coming up soon too.

The pear and syrup should be enough for an entire bottle of champagne or prosecco. The syrup will definitely get you through a bottle but you may want an extra pear if they are small.
