Maple Syrup Recipes for Canada Day

This post originally appeared in Persephone Magazine on July 1, 2011. Cross-posted with permission. 

Happy Canada Day, Readers! I'm a Canadian lady, so on this most Canadian of days I'm whipping out ALL THE PATRIOTISM! (And maple syrup.)

My recipes today come from Pierre & Janet Burton's Canadian Food Guide. (Non-Canadians: Pierre Burton was one of the most popular Canadian historians of all time. OF ALL TIME! If you don't believe me, just look at
his Wikipedia page. You can't throw a microfiche reader in the Canadian history section of your library without hitting one of his books. And check out the majestic sideburns he had...)

See what I mean? Majestic!

Hiatus: Over

Dear Readers... In the immortal words of America in their 1975 hit song Sister Golden Hair:
I've been one poor correspondent
And I've been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind
I know I've been inexcusably terrible about keeping up to date with this blog. But let me try to excuse myself anyway...

In the time since my last blog update I've broken my arm, had surgery on said arm, recovered from surgery, packed up all the things, moved to another city, and unpacked most of the things (still working on that one)... all the while continuing to write my regular food column for
Persephone Magazine (shameless plug!) and attempting to have some semblance of a social life.

Anyway, I'm sorry. I'll endeavour to be a more faithful blogging-person, or whatever.  

Oh, and yesterday was exactly one year since I posted my first recipe! My Blog-iversary! Huzzah!

So, to recap:

  • So sorry.
  • Been busy.
  • Will re-post my Persephone content more regularly.
  • Plus bonus content.
Is it a deal? Do you love me again/still?
