Awsome list of homemade recipes.
It may sound counter-productive to make something homemade and then call it convenient but it really isn’t. If you spend a couple of hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon preparing these mixes, they will be ready for nearly instant gratification during the week. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that your own mixes do not contain all the chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors of the store bought, ready-made variety.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Homemade Chocolate Syrup
½ cup cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/8 tsp salt
¼ tsp vanilla
Mix the cocoa & the water in a saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Boil three minutes. Add the salt & the vanilla. Pour into a pint jar and store in the refrigerator.
Homemade Pancake Syrup
3 cups granulated sugar
1 ½ cups water
