No Fry Eggplant Layers

I have been fussing with eggplant recipes forever.  I have made progress in cutting down on the greasy aspect but I still haven't found the complete answer.  In my search, I made this No Fry Eggplant Layers  I used the broiler instead of the skillet.  The recipe comes from the Bais Yaakov Cookbook, a brand new book, on the market, I believe.  It is a kosher cookbook, which for me, I can make anything, in the book, avoiding gluten, of course.

Bake With Bizzy - Double Pear Bread

This is the season of baking, cookies, cakes, pies and casseroles and vegetables and more, more more.  Let's see what we all have to share this week.  I am sharing a Double Pear Tea Bread.  I made this gluten-free.

I had wanted to use recipes from The American Test Kitchen but for some reason, get called away and end up with something else.  Last nigh, I took out the book and placed it on my counter and decided, I was not going to do anything else, until I baked from it.  I have found all the recipes, in this book, are excellent and this was no exception.  Originally, this was a lemon tea bread with no fillers.  I had some pear juice and some dried pears so it changed its identity and had some cut up pears and walnuts added to the batter.
