Several years ago, I had an experience that haunts me to this day. If there was any way possible to turn back the clock and re-live that Saturday, it would be such a blessing.

It was a major […]
I remember the first time I tasted real, pure maple syrup on my waffles – I thought I’d died and gone to heaven! I was hooked but was quickly brought back to reality when I discovered a half gallon of pure Vermont maple syrup cost more than $50! I was willing to justify the cost but was quickly vetoed by my budget conscious wife. There are times I have to secretly purchase a small quantity and hid it in […]
