Fast Caramel Sauce
This recipe has shown up in many recipes and is a go-to when I don't want to go through the whole process of making real caramel sauce. This is quick and only has two ingredients. It's also really quick to make, tastes like caramel sauce, and you can make a big batch or a small batch without having to use any math skills that you may or may not have! Here's how to make it:
Prep Time: 1 min
Cook Heat-Up Time: 30 secs
Total Time: 1:30  (mins) 
You'll Need:
light brown sugar
(a spoon
a bowl/custard cup)
for serving size 1: put 1/8 cup of light brown sugar into custard cup. pour 1Tablespoon and then 2 teaspoons of cream over top. Put in microwave for 30 seconds (and, for me, it makes this delicious "film" overtop, but it might not do it for sounds gross, but trust me--it's delicious. If you don't like it, it's good drunk with the coffee, as well, and if you still don't like it, you can scrape it off and pour it down the drain, just don't tell me you did so, because I love that stuff).
for serving size 2: follow recipe above, only do this six times, three per cup.
for serving size 3: follow recipe above, only do this nine times, three per cup.
You get the idea. Just do three per cup. Or just make one serving again and again and again until you've gotten everybody cleared.

Also, to get a thicker, creamier version of caramel sauce, let it sit (after mixing ingredients) for 10-20 minutes. It's delicious!

serving size for a cup of coffee or another beverage that calls for caramel sauce: 3 single serving sizes will sweeten one cup of coffee.

2% Milk
For those of you who don't know how to make 2% milk yourself, I've put together a recipe (just pretend it's "just for you") so that you can make your own 2% milk. Unfortunately, this recipe is only for single servings, so if you want to make 2% milk in bulk, this isn't the recipe to go to. Sorry.
This is my own personal recipe, so I hope you like it (or at least will drink it).
Here's how to make it:
Prep Time: 30 sec
Total Time: 30 sec

You'll Need:
3/4 c milk
1-2 Tbs cream (depending on how creamy you like your 2% milk)
Mix up the cream and the milk and use it for whatever you want: to drink plain, to go with cookies, to go with oreos, to go with brownies, to be used for coffee, to be used in tea, to be used in cocoa, to be used in an evil plan...etc. etc.

serving size for beverages: see recipe above

Mint White Chocolate Syrup
This was my mom's recipe and when I asked her how she made it, she was like, "Well, I didn't use a recipe..." which is Mom all over! But she told me she "used" (she never follows recipes - she adds and subtracts ingredients until she likes it!) some recipe online for chocolate sauce and just put in white chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate chips. So I looked online and you know how Google will turn the already-clinked-on links purple? So I googled "chocolate sauce" and up popped some links, and two purple ones! The first one was allrecipes and I don't think Mom is a huge fan of allrecipes. So then I left it open, went back, and clicked on the next one which was from FoodNetwork. Mom likes the Food Network better than allrecipes, so I assume she used FoodNetwork's recipe. So here it is. I've already made all the changes you need to make, so just follow the recipe below.

Cook Time: 10 min
Total Time: 10 min 

You'll Need:
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 pound white choc. chips

Heat the cream and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the chocolate, stirring, until it's melted and smooth. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

NOTE: be sure to watch over the white chocolate. Do not leave it for one second. White chocolate tends to seize very easily and quickly, so make sure you watch it the whole time it's on the stove, or you'll have to start over and you might even cry. What? It's not like it's never happened!

More coming hopefully soon!
