Baked French Toast
If you do not want it too "mushy" be sure to use all of the loaf to french bread. Do not lay it flat in the pan but lay them at an angle against one another. When you add the liquid pour it over and in-between the slices. This gives more bread to soak up the liquid.

Duck Butter Dip
I love the overall taste of this spread. Either I put in too much salt or the recipe called for too much because it was way too salty. I would suggest tasting it before adding all the sal and keep in mind that the crackers you serve with it will probably be salted also. I will make it again.

Christmas Cinnamon Pears
tried the recipe and it was great. I did combine it with another recipe for pears that used cream cheese balls rolled in pecans and topped with mayo and marachino cherry juice and them topped with the cherry for garnish. Adds that little bit of lacking flavor. Also if you want more cinnamon flavor add cinnamon extract.
