Maple Glaze
Pour brandy in a pan and flambé for 5 seconds. Add the syrup and heat. Whisk in the cornstarch and water mixture, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring. Cool to room temperature.

Onion- Mashed Potatoes
Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss the chopped onions with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes, until soft. Purée onions in a blender. Cover potatoes with water in a medium saucepan and boil until tender when pierced with a fork. Put drained, warm potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add milk and butter, and mash with an old-fashioned potato masher. Season to taste.
