Homemade Chocolate Syrup ~ Delicious and crazy easy.

ATTENTION Chocolate lovers!! Do you love making a glass of chocolate milk? How about a drizzle of that lovely syrup on top of your Ice Cream? A cup of hot chocolate on those cold mornings? Oh yes these are always good. Unfortunately if you are on a budget buying the Chocolate syrup can be expensive if you go through a lot of it, so it gets reserved for special occassions. Now for the good news! YOU can make it at home, for Pennies on the dollar AND it is every bit as good as your store bought name brand ~ Without all the preservatives :) YES Chocolate on DEMAND! I am in LOVE ;0)

Pancake Syrup ~ Homemade goodness in 5 minutes!

What is your favorite weekend breakfast? I love pancakes! That "love" required me to spend years stocking up on pancake syrup and yet it seemed that I would still run out when I least expected it. Living in the country, jumping in the car and running over to the store to pick up a few things quickly is not an option. One day I finally decided enough is enough! I keep all the items I need to make the syrup on hand in bulk, WHY was I spending so much on the store bought version??  Why indeed! All you need is a few minutes and 5 ingredients, one is water and the another is optional!

Christmas Tree Sun Catcher Ornaments ~ Easy & Fun!

Yesterday was one of those days where a easy craft to keep the children occupied was in need. We have been wanting to make sun catchers for some time now and yesterday was the perfect opportunity. It turned out to be a really fun project that both of my grandchildren enjoyed! The oldest one laid out letters and designs in hers, where the youngest one did a lot more freestyle on patterns. We ended up with 24 Ornaments ~ some they made to give as gifts, others for them to hang on their tree.
