Baked French Toast Casserole: Cut some bread into cubes and place them in a casserole dish. Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon and pour over the bread. Let sit for a few hours or overnight, then bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes. Serve with maple syrup and fresh berries.
Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken: Rub a whole chicken with a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, thyme, and rosemary. Roast at 375°F for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Serve with roasted potatoes and asparagus.

Meanwhile, prepare a salsa by mixing diced mango, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Serve the salmon topped with the mango salsa and a side of steamed rice.
Chocolate Truffle Cake: Melt some dark chocolate and butter in a double boiler. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and fold in some flour. Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch cake pan and bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
