Citrus-Wine Poached Pears

Wait, did Victoria Secret just call me a slut?

If you were driving and saw a license plate that read ” <3 SLT “, what would you think? Well, I for one, would giggle while dangerously trying to snap a picture to text to my friends. Now, imagine discovering that same text on your new bra, spelled out in rhinestones. First of all, if I had noticed the rhinestones before then, I wouldn’t have made the purchase, secondly, WTF. There it is, on the side of my bra, <3 SLT. I even flipped it over to see if I was reading something incorrectly. Nope, that’s definitely what it said.

Um, excuse me, did Victoria Secret just call me a slut?

Ooooh, that’s the abbreviate of a category of style in you line of undergarments (Sexy Little Thing). I guess that makes it OK.

No one at the office caught that? Really, someone in PR should have picked up on that one in this age of twitter, texting and shortened English language.

And now to get my booty back into kitchen for one of the sexiest desserts I think I’ve ever made. ;)





  1. Right now I’m checking all my bras… what are they saying???
    I’m not actually a cooked pear fan but the way you presented it on the plate with that luscious sauce makes me wanna try it :)

  2. I love pr blunders. Clinique has a makeup called The Chubby. Um no thanks.

    You’re too funny, Kita :) pears look delicious!

  4. OMG I’m a SLT too! Haaaaaaaaaaa! Great post Kita! And these pears are SLT’s fo sho!

  5. These are gorgeous and so elegant. And I had to laugh at the SLT reference.

  6. At least they wrote <3 SLT, like maybe they heart sluts? Haha. Nice pictures, very autumnal!

  7. I can almost taste them from the picture! I’ll bet they’re delicious!

  8. Citrus-wine?? Yes please! These pears look so juicy and delicious, what a great recipe! :)

  9. Not a lot of ingredients to this, but very big on flavor! This is the perfect dessert when you crave pears! Next best thing to eating them right off the tree. Well done.

  10. What a lovely pair of pears! I would like to check my bra but…..well lets just leave things as they are ;)
    Take care…

  11. Ha. Nice segue into preparing a “sexy dish”…These pears look like a dessert we would find at a James Beard award winning restaurant!

  12. This dessert is sexy the pictures are gorgeous I love the black all around with the pop of white from the plate. I would have laughed my ass off if I saw that license plate and I totally would have thought it meant slut lol. It’s even more hilarious that it’s on your bra but totally think agree someone is sleeping on the job at Victoria Secret lol!

  13. Too funny – what does it say if a lingerie thinks you are a slut? WOW!! Yeah, they really need to rethink that line of advertising.
    Peas are gorgeous, sexy and amazing!

  14. Haha that is hilarious! I was just in VS the other day, buying a new bra, and I saw that on the side of one and I was like ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Although you should look through what some of their “pink” clothes say. Really VS? Really….

    Your pears are quite sexy, by the looks of it, they would need a 32A…make sure and get the <3 SLT bra for them too! ; )

    • Handsome and I walked by the other night (and actually didn’t go in for threat of no supper – burger trumps bras) but even he stumbled upon reading some of the Pink things – and that was just on a quick walk by!

  15. Very fancy! and the pictures are great as usual. The sauce sounds amazing.

  16. whoa!! And to think that I almost had SLT panties for my wedding night. UUmmm no!! But since these pears are so sexsey I think if I ate too many I’d feel a little SLT-Y :) :) Gorgeous!!

  17. You do have quite a sexy dessert on your hands here. I would have had to Google SLT to find out what it meant. I’m so behind on abbreviations and text language!

  18. What a gorgeous photography! The pears look really delicious too…

  19. I just snacked on a delicious fresh pair, but what I’d give to have yours instead! Gorgeous photos, Kita~

  20. pear…where is my brain these days?

  21. Yep, totally checked out my bras after reading the first couple paragraphs of this. SLT written on nearly half of them! Hehe, oh well.

    These pears look like a couple SLT’s too! But in a good way =)

  22. Those pears are total SLT’s!

  23. those pears look delicious… love the pictures

  24. I imagine those pears are sweet, tender and juicy! MMM! I’ve never poached pears but my other half has with his son and those pears were pretty spectacular! These pears are absolutely beautiful!

    I think some “girls” think it’s “cute” to be called a “SLT”. I saw a teenager with a shirt that spelled the word out the other day and she thought it was really neat. My first thought was…where is her mother?!? Then I remembered that some girls don’t follow a full-disclosure policy when it comes to their attire and parents. I wanted to pull a mama on her and make her get a real shirt, but I didn’t. I was too busy trying to find a way to explain what that word means to an eight year old. Why do all those words have to be phoenetic?!?

    • Oooh I say go for it! She probably needed to hear it – since her own parents weren’t telling her otherwise. You would probably lover my real life rants. I have a bag full of them and the boys at work know how to trigger them on a hairpin.

  25. Absolutely stunning dessert and that was a hilarious introduction! Beautiful photos – as always!

  26. Oh Kita, you never fail to make me smile. These pears are simply gorgeous. I love your blog, and I think you’re S.L.T. (Seriously Lip-smacking Talented!)

  27. Omg I am drooling. The pears would be delicious with a scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream. I can’t wait to try this out!

  28. That really is the sexiest pear I’ve ever seen! Gorgeous!!

    P.S. sex sells?! ~shrug~

  29. Oh, HELLO! These look great! Wonderful pictures too!

  30. Congrats on Foodbuzz top 9!

  31. Congrats on the Top 9… that is one seriously gorgeous photo!!!

  32. Oooohhhh….I just love poached pairs!!! And no, you’re not a slut hahahaha..dont you just love those people that sit in an office and just think of clever marketing tools? Oh I saw a green nailpolish called “Phew..whats that smell?”…really? lol

  33. fantastic recipe! Looks so delish – its got my mouth watering!

  34. It was rocking to meet you on Saturday! This recipe is in-cred-ible!
