That sounds good. The only cooking I’ve been proud of lately is making my own syrup. I used this recipe for cinnamon syrup and it was AMAZING! You can use it for pancakes, ice cream, or even in coffee. I’m not a big fan of maple flavoring, so I loved using this on pancakes. I put the extra syrup in a glass jar in the fridge and it kept really well. When I make it again I won’t add the flour.

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water

Stir together the white sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir in vanilla extract and water. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring often. Continue to boil and stir until mixture thickens to syrup consistency. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes before serving.

I’ve come up with my own pasta sauce by throwing some canned goods together when I ran out of Classico!

2 Cans of Kroger “Italian Style” Stewed Tomatoes

1 tbsp of EVOO

3 cloves of minced garlic

Italian seasoning, sweet basil leaves, salt and pepper, crushed red pepper to taste

1 jar of mushrooms


Sautee the EVOO and garlic for 1-2 min. Then add everything else and let cook for 15 min. Then lower heat and simmer for 10 min. SOOOOOOO good. And it’s light. 🙂
