Well it’s Friday and yet another week has flown by. I can’t even believe Chris and I are just 6 weeks away from getting married! It seems like yesterday we were 18 year old kids meeting for the first time.

Some of the best recipes we make are inspired by borrowing the flavors from other foods that we know we love.

This is inspired by my mother-in-law-to-be’s Spiced Pear Skillet Cake. She has made this for a few occasions over the last couple years, and it never ceases to be everyone’s favorite part of the meal.
