So, I’m still learning how to make maple syrup. I’m still messing up almost daily. But wow, I’m not sure that I’ve ever enjoyed such amazingly delicious, oh-so-sweet byproducts of my failures.

I’m a New England homesteader and the author of Sweet Maple: How to make maple products & bake with them. Naturally. (In print this fall.) I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart, mom to four daughters, and ardent fan of all things maple-flavored. I’m blessed to live in an old farmhouse, by a mountain lake, on acres of stone walls and sugar maples. The floorboards creak, the barn roof sags, and the rocky land seems unforgiving. Yet it is perfect. Because here our family has started living a more sustainable life, focused on simple joys.
