Yes, anything other than maple syrup is no better than just pouring sugar and dye directly onto ones food. A friend just made it on their property a few weeks back, I had no idea one could do it this far south (PA)? I always thought of it as an up north thing? The syrup wasn't the best, but it was pretty good, for free homemade local syrup!
I'm in invitation addressing hell, I'm throwing my husband a big party for his graduation. I'm not sure that I know what I'm getting into here, I've never hosted a party this large, especially at our home. Already starting to do weird voodoo stuff in hopes of a sunny day.
I'm leaving for vacation in like 10 days and busy coordinating the schedules of three kids with two sets of grandparents for a week, then a sitter for the second weekend. Its a lot.
I wish it would warm up around here, this low 40's and super windy crap is for the birds. All my poor oldest wants to do is play hockey in the driveway and the weather is just killing me. Getting drilled with a hockey ball in the stinging cold is the suck.
We have a historic flour mill that sells the most delicious real maple syrup. Between that and the waffle mix I could be huge if I was eating gluten

Sorry about all the sickies, hope you're feeling better or will soon
Bonita, so happy you got good news from the doc's office! Hope it goes smoothly with the wedding cake if you wind up doing it. Yuck on the division. Woo hoo for pretty blooms.
Melissa, glad the one party went well, good luck with the big one.
Laurie, have fun with the photography class! Hope you get the job you want, KUP. The muffins sound yummy. I bookmarked your Blog to go ck out later
Glad most of us enjoyed our Spring Break, agree that it didn't last long enough. We didn't go anywhere, DH had to work, but I still had a nice time with Hannah. It was cold all the way up until the last day, when we were finally able to go to the water park near the beach. She played while I read my book and worked on my tan.
LOL @ having to use the play fork and spoon for eggs. Hope you find the bag of cutlery!
Laughing so hard about whiny Caillou. Hannah watched that in her earlier yrs, might explain why she still to this day tries the whiny routine. Notice I said, 'tries.' lol.
Real maple syrup. YUM.
Excited here about my new job as a chef consultant (independent contractor). Lots of training/studying going on right now learning how to do cooking shows, etc., so I probably won't be around as much for awhile, either.
Hope the weather warms up soon for those of you up north. It hasn't been as warm down here in FL, either, for this time of year, and today it's been a soggy rainy mess so far.
