  • Excerpted from our Maple cookbook by Katie Price Webster.

    Makes 3 cups | Active time: 10 minutes | Total time: 10 minutes


    1/3 cup best-quality cocoa powder 

    1/3 cup dark maple syrup

  • Like breakfast foods for dinner, some things may sound wrong but are just so right. The same can be said for maple syrup in savory dishes. Working on Maple has had Quirk HQ slathering the sweet stuff on tons of dishes we never thought to maple-fy before. And thanks to author Katie Webster's recipes, the results were as one might put it, suh-weeet! So in honor of the book's on-sale day, here’s what Katie’s recipes has taught us about having maple syrup for dinner! (As regaled by publicist extraordinaire Val Howlett.) 

  • Dust off those spacesuits, it’s time blast off in your own personal spaceship to see The Martian. We all know that Mark Watney is the greatest botanist on Mars.  Okay, so he's also the only botanist on Mars, but does that really make it less impressive? If you’re a true Martian fan you know what Astronaut Watney is growing in his crew’s abandoned habitat (that’s Hab for those in the know): Potatoes. Kilograms and kilograms of potatoes.

    To celebrate the movie’s theatrical landing, here are four delicious potato recipes guaranteed to impress your inner Astronaut Watney.

  • The Nordic countries—Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland—have given the world things like Skype, Angry Birds, Of Monsters and Men, Lars von Trier, the Noble Peace Prize, and, last but not least, Nordic Noir. In other words, the Nordic countries are not afraid to put their own twist on things.

    Something else that they have put their own twist on is the hot dog.
