  • Eva Longoria's Cranberry-poached Pears

    Try this cranberry infused recipe for a fruity dessert or as a sweet side dish. As they simmer, the pears send enticing wafts of fruit and vanilla through the air, a fitting invitation to a supremely elegant dessert I've also served these at Thanksgiving with the main course in place of traditional cranberry sauce. The tea bag adds undertones that complement or highlight the fruit in the simmering liquid - fruity or floral, depending on what you use.
