This is a cause we can all support! I don’t know anyone whose life hasn’t been touched by some form of cancer. We all know about being screened, wearing sunscreen, eating properly and of course exercise.

Today’s recipe is Pears Hélène, a delicious dessert to share with your loved ones. This particular recipe comes from the Healthy Eating Cookbook published by the American Cancer Society. If you’d like your own copy, here’s the link.
