Homemade syrup and dip/dressing

In my goal of avoiding high fructose corn syrups I have moved to making my own syrup for pancakes/waffles and honey mustard dressing which my kids usually use to dip their meats in at dinner.
The syrup I think is so much better then most bottled brands


1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1 TBS butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla (try to get one without HFCS. The Aldi brand does not have any)

Put sugars and water in to a saucepan.
Cook just until all sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
Add butter and vanilla.

I keep mine in a small container in the fridge and then just put some in a mug and heat it in the microwave.

Honey Mustard Dip/Dressing

1 1/2 cups Mayo (Hellmann's is a good mayo without alot of extra junk)
1/4 cup mustard ( I used Zesty Deli Brown)
1/2 cup Honey

Wisk together. Refrigerate for 2 hours
