Maple News

It’s time to decide. Is maple sugaring the next new skill you’ll master during the pandemic? Maybe these mouth-watering maple recipes will push you over the edge!

To start the day off right, Overnight French Toast with Orange Infused Syrup, Apple Cinnamon Bostock, or Biscuits with Fried Peaches may be just the thing. If it has to be pancakes, make them Gingerbread Pancakes with Winter Fruit Salad or Blueberry Orange Spice Pancakes. Dang!

Later, try Sweet Gochujang Tempeh Bao with a side of Fried Banana Peels, aSweet Potato Falafel Bowl with Tahini Dressing, or Oven Roasted Pork Chops with Citrus, Fennel and Goats Cheese Salad. Indeed.

And you can chase that down with Winter Wellness Mocktails, a Warm Winter Cocktail or Mulled Wine. Yep!

Backyard News

Wild things are still afoot in our backyards! Quite aside from ghost town replicasand scale models of favorite cities we can no longer visit, there are also birds, more birds and knife wielding squirrels! The grand prize, though, goes to the family who built a backyard tow rope for sledding. Quarantine much?

Even as we plan for, or even start, our backyard sugaring hobby, though, we’ve got an eye on spring. Internet anticipation of gardening, orcharding and rehabbing backyard waterways has begun!
