Sweet deal.

We all know that maple syrup is a staple for a successful brunch. We pour too much of it on our short stack, form tiny pools of it in the hollows of our waffle, and let it overflow onto our sausage links. Maple syrup ups the ante in a big way — at times, it makes everything else seem like a mere vehicle for its consumption. But, while we're rehydrating our pancakes with a second pouring, let us not forget that maple syrup isn't just for breakfast; it isn't just for sweets; and it isn't the star of every show.

Maple syrup plays the supporting role quite well, too — it adds oomph to roasts, a certain je ne sais quoi to sauces and icings, and bit of intrigue to sweet and savory baked goods. So, keep your bottle close at hand. Here are 13 recipes that might have you reaching for it morning, noon, and night.
