I kinda have a "thing" for Vanilla! I just LOVE it! I love the word "vanilla" and I love the smell and I definitely love the flavor!! If I see a new gourmet vanilla at the store - I can't resist - I have to buy it. If you ever need a gift idea for me, just buy me a bottle of some gourmet vanilla and I will love you forever! My vanilla obsession is as bad as my cookbook obsession! I won't even tell you how many different vanillas I have in my baking cupboard! We will save that for another post. So, I decided that I am going to have a Vanilla Giveaway Extravaganza. Every time I get 200 followers (up until I hit 1000) I am going to give away some type of vanilla!! So, 600 Followers, 800 Followers and 1000 Followers! That is three giveaways!! I know this might take a long time, but I won't forget to do the giveaways!
I first discovered Vanilla Bean Paste on my trip to Seattle in 2009. I went up there to see my favorite band perform and of course to do a little shopping! I went to Pike Place Market and found this fun store called Sur La Table. It was there where I first discovered Vanilla Bean Paste! I bought myself two bottles and I instantly LOVED it! It gives your treats the BEST vanilla flavor and of course it adds those fun little black speckles that vanilla beans add. I know if you try this stuff, you will love it too. So, I am giving away one, bran-new, sealed, bottle of Vanilla Bean Paste!
