I tried making a separate page for a collection of recipes, but it will take me much longer to figure out how to. Any recipe I put up is one I've tried and found it to work well. The category will be titled 'Cheap Recipes' which should help you find the collection easier. Let me know what you think or if you have an easier way to access the information.

1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
Mix with a fork or whisk. I love this recipe. It takes less than a minute to make and there is no waste. If a recipe calls for 1/3 cup, I do the math and add 1/3 tablespoon molasses. (1 teaspoon)
