Homemade Vanilla

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Making your own vanilla is a great idea! A few tips; my mom has been making vanilla for over 20 always turns out great. Her advice is to split the beans before putting them in the liquor to release the most flavor. A lot of people use vodka, mom has always used Brandy(J&B,not expensive)..the brandy gives a wonderful color and flavor. The vanilla really should be left alone for about 3 months(just give it a gentle shake every few weeks). This vanilla has always turned out very well,and is terrific to give as gifts.

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
These were fantastic. I doubled the cream cheese, added some taco seasoning and a little sour cream. We love olives, just chop them real fine and adjust the amount to taste. Great recipe!
