Homemade Pancake Syrup

Candy

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile. She’s been married to her best friend and the love of her life for almost 25 years and is navigating motherhood with her 4 children, aged 23, 19, 14, & 11. Homeschooling for over 18 years now, she is also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – she actually considers making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.

Ever checked the label on a bottle of store-bought pancake syrup? It ain’t pretty! Unless, of course, you like high fructose corn syrup mixed with corn syrup and a few other unpronounceable words. Real maple syrup is an excellent option, but Geeze, Louise! Have you seen the prices on those pretty glass jars? Don’t despair! […]

I don’t know about y’all, but I love me some pancakes! Not only are they easy to make and perfect for a homestyle breakfast (or supper!), they’re also super versatile. I can vary the final product depending on what I have in my pantry/frig. Plain pancakes are great, but throw in some chocolate chips and […]

These granola bars have been a favorite of ours for years. They’re delicious, filling, and, best of all, they’re all-natural – no  high-fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or chemicals in these yummy squares! It isn’t one of the easiest recipes in my repertoire, but the finished product is definitely worth the little extra effort. I also […]

Pat & I were recently invited to a friend’s house for a spend-the-night party. In spite of the fact that we’re both a couple of decades past the acceptable age for slumber parties we had a blast! When our friend, Bonnie, who (unlike me) is blessed with an overflowing gift of hospitality, opened her gorgeous […]

I found this yummy recipe at allrecipes.com, made a few very minor adjustments and VOILA! had these scrumptious babies baking in no time flat. Well, they were a bit more time consuming than that because there are several steps, but trust me, they are so worth it. Pat & her kids were over and we put […]

Our family loves these chocolate chip muffins! They’re great as a breakfast treat, of course, but we’ve also taken them with us on trips as an easy snack that’s cheaper and healthier than picking up candy bars at gas stations along the way. I gotta warn you though…If you have an aversion to moist, chocolately, […]

This yummy casserole is great for church pot-lucks or large family gatherings. It’s even earned a permanent spot on our Christmas morning menu. I get everything mixed up and ready to go on Christmas Eve and pop it in the oven the next morning right before we start opening presents. It’s an excellent way to […]

I was married for over 10 years before I learned to make pancakes from scratch. I had no idea what we were missing! Sure there’s the sense of accomplishment that comes from learning to do something new, but the yumminess factor goes to a entirely new level when the pancakes are homemade. Unless, of course, […]
