I live in northern Michigan, so we know a thing or two about maple syrup. I feel spoiled to be able to buy local maple syrup. I tried this recipe several years ago when my mother's friend made a similiar version. I substitute the corn syrup with agave, honey is great too. Pour this over ice cream, pancakes, waffles or as my son loves to do, his bacon! —ashleychasesdinner

One constant in my life is food. I love to cook, eat and learn new things about food. I grew up in a family who had the philosophy that the kitchen was the heart of the home. My southern mom and grandma were amazing cooks who taught me food was more than sustenance, it was soulful. I am always amazed, inspired and genuinely happy to have found such a place as food52 with so many like minded individuals. With inspiration like this to draw from, there is endless oportunity to learn new things!
