Grilling Out ~ Crocheted Bookmark ~ Honey Syrup Recipe
We've been having wonderful weather that is perfect for drying clothes outside. What a strange winter this is. We even grilled out last night.
I found tatting thread! After I took this photograph, I found two more in different colors. I'm so excited!
With some of the cotton crochet thread in my bag from the thrift store, I crocheted myself a fun granny square bookmark. I still need to weave in my ends, but I love it. I am practicing a few patterns before I put a few more in my store.
Honey Syrup is a great substitute for store bought syrup. I saw that the recipe was requested, and here is the recipe: I made a simple syrup of equal parts of water and sugar. I heated it until it dissolved, then added an equal amount of honey. I heated until the syrup was the thickness I wanted and put leftovers in a canning jar. For my large family we used 2/3 cup of each ingredient, but you could easily cut it in half and use 1/3 cup for each ingredient.
As for the Monster Cookies, I have several recipes for them. For the ones I posted about, I used a baking mix and Candy's recipe on her blog. Here are the links:
