Browned Brussels With Maple Butter From 'Choosing Sides'

Brussels sprouts are a given on my Thanksgiving table, but I don't always give them much thought. Olive oil, salt, and a hot oven are my only requirements. While this method does produce pleasantly caramelized sprouts, it doesn't add much excitement to the table. This year, I'll take a cue from Tara Mataraza Desmond and toss my Brussels in brown butter and maple syrup as she does in her new cookbook, Choosing Sides. More

Sweet Potato Brioche French Toast

There are a lot of steps involved in this recipe for sweet potato French toast with homemade sweet potato brioche, but none of them are hard, and if you've never made brioche be reassured that it's among the easiest of bread doughs. If you can make cake, you can make brioche! More

Blueberry Rhubarb Jam with Maple Syrup

Thick, silky, and speckled with tiny chunks of blueberries, this jam has a pronounced maple flavor and is lightly scented with star anise, cinnamon, and vanilla. It would be perfect between layers of French toast, but also try it with buttery scones or cinnamon streusel muffins, or swirl it into oatmeal. More

Sunday Brunch: Maple Syrup Dumplings

These sweet dumplings blur the line between brunch and dessert, but some mornings call for a bit of sugar, or maple syrup. Instead of using syrup as a garnish it becomes the central player in this warm, sweet breakfast. These dumplings come out plump and coated in reduced syrup, and although the rye whiskey is optional it adds an agreeable boozy element to this dish. More

Maple Cranberry Applesauce

This applesauce, made with maple syrup, brown sugar, and fresh cranberries, is downright dessert-worthy. Each bite tastes like it was swiped from the middle of a pie. Try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some crushed amaretti cookies or graham crackers. More

Blueberry-Maple-Pecan Conserve

I love the combination of tart, juicy blueberries and caramelized, earthy maple syrup. This versatile conserve is a cinch to prepare, and would be wonderful over sweets like vanilla ice cream or pancakes, or savories like a wheel of baked brie. More
