Tapping Into Maple Season

Hi everyone! Happy Spring!

I really, really wanted to share a few pictures of the maple pails gingerly hung from the neighborhood Maple trees but as it happens, my computer with all my files and pictures, is just about to go kaput! To my chagrin, I spent Saturday morning at Best Buy picking out a new computer. I was hoping my next stop at Best Buy would have been to buy an iPhone since I don't have one yet but, a new desk top was more important. (I can't get the hang of my MacAir for the life of me)

The next few days are going to be spent transferring files from the old, about to die computer, to the brand spanking new iMac that is probably bigger than any television set we had at our house when I was growing up. It's huge! I am however, not as computer savvy as I once was. Who can keep up with all this stuff when it changes by the minute anyway?

I will also need to get a new scanner but since I haven't decided on make and model yet, I took a picture of a recipe from an unassuming recipe book titled Maple Sampler by Jan Siegrist and published by New England Press in 1985.

I will be sharing this book again one day but today, I'm just going to leave you with this enticing recipe for Maple Pudding Cake. Doesn't it sound Yummy? In the mean time, I am going to head to the task of learning Migration Assistant and the hours it is going to take to transfer files and pictures. Wish me luck!

If you are interested in finding out more about Maple Syrup time, I did a rather in depth post, which I recently updated, way back in 2008. Its title is March is Time for Maple Syrup. There are recipes from The Vermont Year Round Cookbook by Louise Andrews Kent author of Mrs. Appleyard's Kitchen and many more Maple Syrup recipes. See you Wednesday, good Lord willing and the creek don't freeze, which it just might! Louise
