Absolute Best Pancake Syrup
I can't rate the original recipe because I had to make some substitutions due to lack of ingredients. I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, which gave the syrup a rich flavor. I didn't have vanilla extract, so I used two tablespoons of pure maple syrup and omitted the corn syrup. The flavor was delicious - not too sweet with a taste almost like a cinnamon roll. It came out quite thin, but I don't know if that's because of my modifications or what. Next time I would probably halve the milk because I like a thicker syrup. Will definitely make again.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry
This is a fast, easy recipe with good flavor. I use reduced sodium soy sauce and skip the added salt at the end and it suits me just fine. I have made this recipe as written and found that the corn starch globs up with the oil and doesn't get distributed very well, so now I add the cornstarch to the soy sauce and water mixture. Works just fine. Use whatever veggies you have on hand. I personally like julienned carrots, sweet bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, green onion, and broccoli. I also add a little chili sauce to spice it up and reduce the oil because I'm watching fat and calories. Add some sliced chicken breast and you have a great meal.

Fluffy Pancakes
Excellent recipe. The cakes are nice and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness. The batter comes out quite thick, so I thinned it just a tiny bit, but otherwise they're fantastic. Much better than a mix in a box and it doesn't take much time to whip them up either. The only change I made was adding about a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Will definitely make again.
