Caramelized Pears | Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, and I’m going to guess that there’s a 75 percent chance you’re already a little sick of chocolate. Am I right? I won’t tell your valentine (who probably already has a box of chocolates waiting for you for tomorrow), but I will give you this delicious nonchocolate dessert recipe to try.

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
All you need is some butter, a few pears, light-brown sugar, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt if you’re feeling virtuous). Tune in to the video and I’ll show you how to turn those simple ingredients into a delicious dessert with just one skillet and 15 minutes.
