    Oh goodie! Food moralizing!!!!

    People manage to lose weight without putting health halos on their food all the time. Shocking, I know.

    This is dead easy, no measuring involved, and can be used to top ice cream, a plain cake or spice cake, on pancakes or waffles, or as a side dish to meats.

    Just peel and slice apples. Simmer in maple syrup (the good stuff) with a teeny pinch of salt until tender. Profit.

    Speaking of maple syrup, I've made pecan pie with maple syrup instead of corn syrup.

    Life changing.

    That sounds so good! I love apples cut in half and cored, then baked with brown sugar and cinnamon. So simmered in maple syrup sounds heavenly.

    When I still ate meat, I used to make them to eat with pork chops. It was a tasty combo.

    It also became a Thanksgiving side dish staple. They are really tasty.

    I serve maple applesauce as a side to pork chops. It's a great combo. :)

    I'm accepting beer bribes. In the meantime, I'll dig out my hammer and nails. Winter is coming, we better get cracking on that.

    Just thought of another dinner dish I do using maple syrup:

    Pan sear ham steaks in a little butter until lightly browned. Remove ham. And a few glugs of real maple syrup to the pan, stir to combine with the butter and then simmer on low heat until the sauce starts to caramelize - don't let it burn. Pour over the ham once plated.

    I usually serve it with a side salad and baked beans. :)

    Blueberry lady finger cake. High in calories but has a very light, creamy texture. So good and was always a Thanksgiving dessert growing up.

    2 (2 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
    2 pt. heavy cream
    4 pkg. Lady Fingers
    1 can blueberry pie filling

    Soften cream cheese; add sugar and whip cream. Beat until mixture forms peaks. Set aside.
    Line bottom and sides of large springform pan with layer of lady fingers. Pour 1/2 of mixture over lady fingers, place another layer of lady fingers over mixture, pour rest of mixture, a layer of lady fingers. Top with pie filling. Refrigerate.

    I absolutely *love* Concord grapes. They are usually called Coronation grapes in Canada. Taste *exactly* like Welch's Grape Juice. I wish they were in season longer. <3

    Warm brownies fresh out of the oven, with some hot chocolate. I also have a gingerbread man tea and a chocolate mint one. Although the teas aren't really dessert, they are awesome on a cold day.
    Yes!
    Im still in it with pecan pie:

    Deliciously toasted pecans enrobed in creamy sweet velvety buttery sexiness encased in a crumbly, buttery crust.

    @GottaBurnEmAll holy...crap! Maple syrup in a pecan pie? How mch does the maple change the flavour? I'm quite intrigued.

    Not as much as you'd think. It's pecan pie, just... maple-y. It's really good. If you love maple as much as my family does.

    Yum. I adore maple syrup. I had the real, pure Quebec stuff right from the tree (boiled down, of course) 10 years ago. I was even reluctant to try it as I was used to the "maple syrup" abomination I tried back in Oz at a very famous pancake restaurant.

    Now, I love tire d'erable, especially when it is poured on snow. And maple butter? I love that, too.
    Since I love Montreal bagels, maple, poutine, char and tourtiere, am I officially Canadian, eh?

    It's so hard to type being so tired and without glasses. I also tured off the ridiculous autocorrect.
