This time of year my body automatically longs to have maple flavored things. This is probably because when I was a kid growing up, we went to Amish country to attend the maple sapping events there.
There was loads of activities and events that took place there. We got to sap trees, make maple candy and other products. There was always a family pancake breakfast. It was one of my fondest memories growing up as a kid. My love of maple syrup has not once vanished. My family jokes that I use it on to many things. However, I wanted to showcase just some of the recipes I've found that prove that maple syrup is good for more than just syrup on your pancakes and waffles.
