This came out great. Did add salt and pepper, plus I baked in the oven, instead of using the micowave.

I have made this recipe many times, actually, but I don't put in the maple syrup (makes it too sweet for me). I will occasionally put in some brown sugar with the cinnamon and nutmeg, along with some salt and black pepper (all to taste).
