Do you ever go through spurts with cooking?
I tend to do a lot of easy / quick stuff for a period of time, and then I go through a big spurt of cooking up a storm. And what that happens, I like to experiment and try new recipes – especially when they have my favorite ingredient. Maple syrup recipes are where I always like to experiment the most.
And this weekend, fingers crossed – we will have our first big boil for syrup. Did you know we make our own maple syrup?
So over the next few weeks I will experimenting and most likely making a huge mess in the kitchen.
But until I come up with something new, I thought I would share some of my tried and true favorites.
This one is the one my youngest daughter asks me to make all the time – Maple Bacon Cheese Cups. They really are amazing.
If you need a fun lunch idea that you can make ahead – Maple Roasted Tomato Orzo Salad is a great option.
A savory option that can be used so many ways is Maple Bacon Pepper Jelly
Of course, if savory is not your thing and you want to make a toast – you can’t go wrong with Mason Jar Maple Martinis
And finally, if you want to go old school with your maple syrup, you can try the classic Sugar on Snow.
