Until this weekend, I hadn’t eaten any dessert in 2013. It wasn’t a resolution or a goal to go a specific amount of time without sweets, I just felt like my body needed a break after the gluttony of Christmas/my birthday season.
But this weekend I decided enough was enough, and I threw together the easiest, most indulgent thing I could piece together with the ingredients I had in the kitchen. STEP ONE. Brown butter. STEP TWO. Add pears. STEP THREE. Top with vanilla ice cream. STEP FOUR: Stand in your kitchen with a spoon and eat those puppies right out of the pan.
