Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a small saucepan, combine the
raisins and wine and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and let
stand 15 minutes to allow the raisins to plump. Strain the raisins
and drain well, reserving any liquid. Place the pears in a baking
dish just large enough to hold them. Combine the raisins with the
pine nuts and fill the cavities of the pears. Put the butter, brown
sugar, white wine, lemon zest and the reserved raisin liquid in the
saucepan and simmer to melt the sugar, approximately 2 minutes.
Drizzle over the pears. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the pears
are tender when pierced with a toothpick, basting occasionally with
the juices. Serve the warm pears in shallow wide-rimmed bowls. Spoon
the Sherry Custard Sauce around and sprinkle with crushed Amaretti
Cookies. Garnish with the mint sprigs, if desired.

Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Eat regular meals
Most low carb recipes are, well...., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a very efficient energy source. A reduced carb diet needs extreme care in controlling your energy levels, as any energy provided by non-carbohydrate sources is slower acting.

Even though there is very little scientific evidence at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by many researchers to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
