Pumpkin pie is the most common dessert made with pumpkin and it is a good one. The custardy filling is sweet and spicy, and its creamy texture contrasts well with a flaky pastry crust. It’s not the only great pumpkin dessert out there, however, and I would put these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Frosting up near the top of the list. They’re a great ... Read More »

Maple Bacon Waffles

Maple Bacon Waffles

I don’t make waffles as often as I make pancakes, simply because it is easier to clean a griddle than it is to clean my waffle iron.

Maple Pumpkin Pie

Maple Pumpkin Pie Slice

I often pair pumpkin with maple when I’m making slightly savory dishes. For instance, I’ll drizzle some pumpkin with maple syrup when I am roasting it to highlight the natural sweetness of the squash, and I’ll add a splash to pumpkin soup for the same reason. The combination works well in sweet applications, of course, and provides a nice change of pace from some other ... Read More »
