Braised Balsamic Chicken
Wow! Talk about lip smacking flavors. I made as is, and have made it again with personal preferences which are a very small departure from the original recipe. As stated many times, if you go for the cheap balsamic vinegar, then expect a meager outcome. This ingredient is the main focus of the recipe; might as well not skimp on it. The first time I made as is, even my kids liked it. They made a little face on the first bite but the tomatoes and spices really balanced the vinegar. The only things that I have changed thereafter is really simple, 1- Added three cloves of garlic when cooking the onions 2- Combined the tomatoes, vinegar, and spices in a bowl and then added to the chicken. It just kept all the ingredients together and coated the chicken better in my opinion. I have made this several times and will continue!

Midwest Loose Meats
I made as is. Some of my family members don't like pickles so I had some with and without. Since I tasted both, I have to admit that the pickles give it a nice kick. While doing AS IS, I thought that the meat had a nice flavor but could need extra seasoning or oomph. I think that some of the suggestions of onions, garlic or garlic power, or others could help it out. However, this is a quick slap it together meal and I am ok with not really tweaking it. I would highly suggest going through the step of putting the sandwiches in the over for 10 minutes! It takes the crumbly mixture which would normally fall out of the sandwich and nicely blends it with the bread. Great idea!

Sangria by the Pros
Are you bloody kidding me?! This was incredible! I used to have bartender made sangria all the time in bistros in Quebec City. They were delicious. Then when I moved to Colorado, it was not served and lost touch with this excellent elixir. Move forward almost 15 years later, I go back to Quebec City just to realize that most people use a prepared mix (like margarita mix) and just add wine; what a travesty! So I looked up this recipe and...WOW! For those of you who have read some of my reviews I always make the recipes AS IS, at least the first time. Well, in this case, I could not find fresh pineapple and did not want the canned version, so I unfortunately had to leave it out. The outcome.... even a doubled recipe DISAPPEARED in less than a half-hour! Now I call that a stamp of approval. Here is a nice little trick though. If you've macerated the fruit in the brandy for the required amount of time, and don't server a lot of them in the actual drink, you can make a new batch in a pinch. Ok, it will not be "as good" as the first one, but it is better than not having sangria!!! Thank you so much for the recipe and having rekindled my love of sangria.
