Maple Pork Tenderloin

Maple and mustard make a sweet-and-savory mahogany-colored sauce. A delicate note of sage gives it a wintery touch. Fresh thyme or rosemary also work if you prefer.

Jubilee Roasted Whole Chicken

This is amazingly simple! Just coat the chicken and throw it in the pot. If you really want to complicate this recipe then you can try throwing it in the pot from a distance, maybe 3-point range. For me, I just plop it in there and get delicious results every time :)

Maple Glazed Hamsteaks

What I like about this recipe is that it is a quick and easy way to prepare a ham. The ham steak is simply brushed with this glaze while being fried in the pan. The glaze is a combination of just a few ingredients—maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard.
