Braised Balsamic Chicken
This recipe is AMAZING! I made it for the family at the cottage and the reviews were over the top - my normally picky nephew exacts words was "that it rocked". The only thing that I did to improve the texture of the chicken to make it more juicy was the following and the results were very positive. I braised the chicken breasts for a few minutes on each side and then transferred the chicken, and added all the ingredients into a large baking dish and baked it for 30 minutes at 350. After letting it sit for 10 minutes, I then took each of the chicken breasts and cut them at an angle into diagonal medium sizes pieces and served on a platter in the sauce. Cutting at an angle can add moistness to chicken breasts and allows the favor of the sauce to easier to serve to kids and larger groups.

Made-Over French Toast with Spiced Pears
Loved this recipe as a base and made it for my girlfriend's brunch club yesterday with these changes - and it was delish! 1. Triple the ingredients to make enough for 6-7 people in a 9 x 13 dish 2. Use challah bread - makes it so much better and don't count the number of slices you use - just use enough slices to cover the entire dish 3. When you mix the honey and lemon juice mixture that is spread on the bottom, I would microwave the mixture so that the honey is melted, as it is much easier to then spread it in the pan 4. When you mix the egg mixture together with the honey, add a stick of melted butter (butter makes everything so much tastier) and instead of dipping the bread in the mixture, just pour the entire mixture over the bread and pears - and let it sit for an hour to properly infuse the bread and make it super moist. And sprinkle some addtal cinnamon over the bread slices so evenly coated. 5. Bake it at 350 for 55- 60 mins - not 20 minutes as they said. 6. Roast/broil the almonds separately and sprinkle over each serving - really makes a difference in terms of finishing touch for taste
