Pretty little bottles and vanilla beans

I am one excited baker lady.

I ordered some vanilla beans.

I ordered them from

I got these Madagascar beans and 1 of these bottles (in cobalt blue), 1 of these bottles, and 1 of these bottles.

Can you guess what I’m going to venture into making?

Yep, homemade vanilla extract.

I am excited.

I got the email that said all of it had shipped and let out a little “Yay!” Yep. Right in the middle of work.

Love it when the coworkers ask if I’m ok.

I hope these are good quality beans.

I’m not going to be a happy camper if I get a bunch of dried up pods.

Where do you buy your vanilla beans?

I’m thinking I’m going to have to buy them on a pretty regular basis. Not just for extract.

I love seeing the little black specks of fresh vanilla in cakes and I’d like to see about homemade vanilla ice cream. And vanilla sugar.

What do you make with vanilla?
