Spiced Peach & Pecan Chia Pudding

Spiced Peach & Pecan Chia Pudding

I am a creature of habit.  I find comfort in routines and schedules.  In fact, if you called me up at 10:30 in the morning and asked me to go to lunch, I would spend the next hour and half having a serious internal struggle about the merits of going to lunch versus continuing on with my lunch as I originally planned.  This inner conflict makes absolutely no sense since more often than not, what is originally planned does not actually involve any plans – at least none that can’t be changed for one day.  I desperately want to be that spontaneous person that does things like make last-minute lunch plans, but internally, I resist it to my very core.

Pear & Goat Cheese Tarts

How adorable are these little tarts – tree-shaped puff pastry topped with pears, goat cheese, Salty Sweet Pecans, and drizzled with a balsamic reduction?  How is that not good?  Pears, goat cheese, & pecans are one of those flavor combinations that just go together.  You can put them in and on anything – a salad, crostini, in a panini, and because the flavors just work, it’s practically guaranteed to be a success.   Give these tarts a try, they would be a welcome addition at your New Year’s Eve party!
