Pear Tarte

What makes fast or convenience food popular is in the title, its convenient and fast. Busy people don’t want to spent a considerable amount of time in the kitchen having already completed a hard day’s work.

I love the autumn as the nights start to draw in and days become shorter. Despite the forebode of knowing that winter is near, I do take great joy in the harvest month.

Happy accidents
