Two favorite guest recipes "Swedish Baked Pears" and "Orange Juice Bread" will whet your appetites!

Swedish Baked Pears

6 red pears
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons half and half
1/4 cup slivered almonds

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
    Wash, core and thinly slice the pears. Place them in the prepared pan.
    Melt the butter, stir in the sugar and keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the flour and stir. Then add the half and half and stir. Pour sauce over the pears. Sprinkle the top with the slivered almonds. Bake for 30 minutes.
    Serve warm in small bowls sprinkled with the nutmeg. Serves 6.

Orange Juice Bread

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon lemon peel
1 teaspoon orange peel
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange juice

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray three small loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
    Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Sift flour and baking powder together. Combine orange juice and milk. Add the flour to the creamed mixture alternately with the orange juice and milk. Beat until very smooth. Beat in lemon peel and orange peel.
    Spoon into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 45 minutes checking after 40 minutes. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    During the last 5 minutes of baking, prepare the glaze. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the sugar, lemon juice, and orange juice. Stir and blend until the sugar is melted and ingredients appear clear. Remove the bread from oven and spoon glaze immediately over warm bread dividing glaze equally among the three loaves. Cool completely in pan before removing and slicing. Freezes well.  3 small loaves.

Note:  Orange Juice Bread is especially good for breakfast when served with a seasoned egg dish. It is also good as a part of an afternoon tea. A slice of Orange Juice Bread topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream creates a decadent dessert. The bread is sweet but very moist and light with a nice citrus tang.
