If you follow me on Facebook then you know I went on a baking binge yesterday…otherwise known as a mental health day! I made yeast rolls, mostly for the freezer but we ate a few. I made cake to freeze and brownies to eat. I made muffins for post-run-club snacks. I started another batch of homemade ginger ale. And I bottled up my latest batch of vanilla extract!
I am glad to have the homemade vanilla extract ready for Mother’s Day. I’ll have plenty to give as gifts and enough left over to use in my cooking, baking, and coffee-making. Once the extract was bottled I put the vanilla beans in the dehydrator to dry out and then started a batch of vanilla sugar. As the weather warms up I’ll be ready to make Vanilla-Mocha Iced Coffee. Yum!
I’m telling you all of this to remind you that the Olive Nation 20% off sale ends today, April 20, 2016! Use coupon code “SAVE20” to save 20% on all products. With Olive Nation’s everyday free ground shipping (in the continental U.S.) on vanilla beans, this 20% off sale is a great opportunity to start making your own homemade vanilla.
