Maple Coconut Blondies

Maple Coconut Blondies

As much as I like brownies, I would have to say that I always have a soft spot in my heart and a place in my kitchen for blondies. They tend to be more cookie-like and less chocolaty than brownies, but since they’re not defined by their cocoa content, there are even more ways to deviate from the standard and experiment with different flavors and ...

Grade A Maple Syrup vs Grade B

Pouring maple syrup

Glance down the syrup aisle at the grocery store and you’re likely to see what seems like a sea of options for syrups. There are tons of “pancake syrups” as well as real maple syrups to choose from. Pancake syrups are usually flavored corn syrup – not the real deal in terms of flavor or consistency, and usually not worth the price even if they’re ... Read More »

Maple Souffles

Maple Souffles

Maple is a flavor that is frequently used to enhance other foods, whether you’re drizzling maple syrup over waffles or a savory side of sweet potatoes. It isn’t often showcased entirely on its own.

Maple Pecan Pie

Maple Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is not my favorite fall pie. That spot is permanently taken by pumpkin pie. But it becomes boring to have only one type of pie around, especially during the holidays. I vary my options with apple pie, lemon meringue pie and, as in this case, pecan pie. Corn syrup is the traditional base for a pecan pie, but I didn’t want to use ... Read More »

How to pour honey and other sticky things

Pouring honey

Honey, molasses, maple syrup, agave syrup and other similarly thick, sticky and sweet liquids can be great to bake with. They all add moisture and lots of subtle flavors to a baked good, moreso than you can get with sugar alone. Unfortunately, they’re not all that easy to work with because it’s hard to measure them – or more accurately, it’s hard to get the ... Read More »

Maple Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies come from a good combination of fall flavors, though it is nearly the start of winter. They combine maple, cinnamon and pecans with my favorite cookie ingredient: oatmeal. The maple comes from maple syrup. I generally keep grade B on hand, since I prefer its darker flavor and slightly more syrupy consistency to higher grades. The highlights of these cookies are the pecans ... Read More »
