Put first five ingredients in a shaker, then add ice cubes. Always add the ingredients to a shaker first, then add the ice, because you do not want the ice to melt while you are adding ingredients. Shake well, and strain into a chilled martini glass, add a splash of sparkling wine and 3 ice cubes. Garnish with hard maple candy leafs. Happy Halloween!

Maple Pumpkin Bread
The best Halloween recipes should be simple. Leave the heave cooking for Thanksgiving. We make this recipe every Halloween and it never fails us. It's relatively quick to prepare and a nice treat when guests stop. Real pumpkin mash can be substituted for the canned pumpkin if you have the time.
Whip eggs in a large bowl, then add all remaining ingredients and mix with fork until combine into a nice batter. Grease mini aluminum loaf pans with butter and fill 3/4 full with batter. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour or until top is browned and passes "tooth pick test". Remove from oven and pans and serve with pumpkin butter or pure maple cream spreads.
Cut top off pumpkin(s) and remove seeds and pumpkin pulp. Set aside. Save seeds to dry and roast at later time. In a large sauce pan wisk together all ingredients the place over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirrig occasionally. Remove from heat and pour into pumpkin. Serve with bread sticks.
Hummus can be made many ways; with or without tahini, with lots of garlic or very little garlic, lots of various spices, or only a few spices. During Halloween we like to add lots of garlic to ours (to keep those Vampires away you know), turmeric, plus some cayenne pepper. The turmeric and cayenne pepper not only give the hummus great flavor, but also gives the hummus an orange Halloween color. Serve it with Maple Crackers and it's delicious, not to mention healthy. Enjoy!
(1) 15 oz. can chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), drained & rinsed
(4) Tbsp. EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
(2) Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
(2) Lrg. garlic cloves, crushed
(1) Tbsp. Tahini
1/2 tsp. turmeric spice
1/2 tsp. old bay space
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper spice
Pinch of salt
1/4 C. water (more if necessary until hummus blends smoothly)
Blend all ingredients in food processor until smooth, remove to bowl and chill for 1 hour. Serve with Maple Crackers. One note - if you use freshly boiled and rinsed chickpeas instead of canned, be sure to only add 15 oz. Even a few additional chickpeas can make getting a tasty and smooth hummus challenging.
