Balsamic Glazed Chicken & Tomatoes

Balsamic Glazed Chicken & Tomatoes

Balsamic Glazed Chicken & Tomatoes - so simple & so good. The big surprise? Those tomatoes steal the show.

As summer morphs into fall, it’s fun to make recipes that still take advantage of the abundance of tomatoes out there (yes, it’s me again – the tomato lady, lol!) but to give them a heartier twist. And when that twist includes easy boneless-chicken breast and a simple balsamic vinegar reduction? Well, count me in.

This Bacon, Dried Cherry & Caramelized Onion Stuffed Tenderloin is one of those. If you’re like me, you’ll just look for an excuse. And you’ll double the recipe and make two!

Oven Roasted Root Vegetables

Oven Roasted Root Vegetables

Does it ever seem like you can pinpoint, in time, when a recipe was developed if you’ve been in the habit of following food trends? And while some things are crazy (foams come to mind) others have staying power. I’m talking Roasted Vegetables and I’m talking Balsamic Vinegar. So I’m thinking late ’90’s, early 2000’s for this dish. And they’re just as good today as they were then.

Bosc Pears with Balsamic Reduction . $1.50

I love to bake, especially for special occasions – I’ll pull out my magazines, watch the shows, leaf through cookbooks for weeks before a Holiday, anticipating making glorious desserts.  But for everyday – well, I’m still trying to lose those same pounds, and I like to keep things simple AND frugal. Still, though, sometimes you just want a little sumpin, sumpin.
