Yesterday I bought some pure vanilla for the first time (I think, so many ingredients such little time) and this morning I made some cookies and I found the taste to be almost overpowering.
Do you usually cut down the amount of vanilla used when a recipe calls for say 1 tsp vanilla extract or do you use it drop for drop as the recipe calls interchangeably with the extract?
There is no such thing as a "self made man". We are made up of thousands of others. Anyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.
