I like to look for recipes that are easy to make and can be whipped together with items you probably already have in your pantry. MAYBE you need to run out and get pears. But if you don’t have pears, you could swap them out for apples instead! Take a chance and give this Spiced Pear Bread recipe a shot this weekend and let me know what you think!
