Pear-Blueberry-Ginger Crisp (Gluten-Free)

"This amazing pear-blueberry crisp packs just the right amount of ginger to warm your tongue and accentuate the flavor of the fruit. Ginger is not only in the juicy fruit mixture but in the browned, buttery topping as well. My family raved about this, and it's clear that I will be asked to make it again and again... and quite possibly again. We enjoyed ours with a dollop of whipped cream, but it could be served with ice cream instead or it's completely capable of shining on its very own as well. I made this using organic and gluten-free ingredients, but it could easily be made with regular sugars and flours if desired."

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
