Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble

TRY THIS AT HOME! Today's creativity comes from the kitchen :)

My teenage son came home from a sleepover a few months ago and said, "Mom! You *HAVE* to get the recipe for vanilla syrup from Josh's mom!!! CALL HER NOW!!! It's the best stuff I have EVER TASTED!!!" (No extra emphasis added)

"Well," says I, "if you like it so much, why don't YOU ask her for it?"

So he did. And we love it. AND it's easy. NOT TO MENTION that there is a cube of butter in the recipe.

Need I say more??

Without further ado, I present to you.....Kim's Vanilla Syrup:

Mix one cube of butter, 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup of buttermilk (yeah, more butter!) in saucepan and boil for one minute.

Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Pour over pancakes or waffles (or just spoon directly into mouth, if you can afford the calories...)
This would probably be about a million Weight Watchers points (so I try to pace myself), but if you need great recipes for that, go to my friend Lacy's Weight Watchers Recipe blog...she's reached her 10% goal and is still going strong!

And thanks, Kim, for contributing to my sugar obsession.

That was nice of you to refer people to Lacy's blog. I'll tell her you did, if she doesn't already know. She has some really good ones on there huh?
BTW--I can't ever make this syrup. I might fall in love with it, and that would be a very bad thing for my own weight loss goals lol.
