    For Balsamic Maple Vinaigrette:
    Place all vinaigrette ingredients in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake to mix well. Refrigerate until needed; shake before using.

    For Sugared Pecans:
    Place brown sugar and water in a heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add pecans and cook, stirring constantly, until all water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Spread pecans on a baking sheet until cooled and dry. Break apart nuts that are stuck together; store pecans in a Ziploc bag until ready to use.
