This recipe is a spin-off of my dad's homemade syrup. Our son requests it with fluffy pancakes whenever he and his family come to visit. --Nancy Dunaway, Springfield, Illinois

Biscuit Baking Mix
Tami Christman of Soda Springs, Idaho needs just four common pantry staples to put together this versatile mix. 'I use it in recipes that call for store-bought baking mix,' she says. It's the key to the lightly browned biscuits as well as to the chunky dumpling soup in the recipes that follow.
Chewy Granola Bars
Extra chewy granola bars. You can make them your own by picking different ingredients to add in! Try using any combination of miniature chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, raisins, chopped dried fruits, candy-coated chocolate pieces, chopped nuts, etc.
Jalapeno Popper Spread
This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers.
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice
This is a delicious unique variation of toasted pumpkin seeds. Easy to prepare and hard to mess up. Once you start eating them, you won't be able to stop!
A Hawaiian chutney, excellent with pork or lamb. Also a treat with peanut butter on bread. Note: Common mangos are small and sweet even when half-ripe, not juicy.
Southern Style Honey Butter
This butter is HEAVENLY on biscuits! Great for hearty breakfasts and my favorite, breakfast for dinner! Shape with a melon baller or pack into a covered dish.
Spiced Coconut Coffee
Don't let the ingredients scare you off. This coffee has a bit of a kick, but it's just right for warming up on those cold winter days. It's easily made in a french press or a regular drip coffee maker. The cinnamon stick can be used more than once. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with ground cinnamon if desired.
