I love giving gifts. I really do fit in that category of those who love to give more than receive. I mean, I obviously love getting gifts as well-let’s not get crazy here-but I truly love selecting gifts and making them special for the person that I am shopping for.
Sometimes though, a homemade gift is even more fun. Usually a homemade gift for me is something that I make…in the kitchen. I will leave the crafts to Abby and Becca on this blog, and I am nice and cozy just staying in the kitchen. Homemade gifts from the kitchen are so fun, and usually, very well received.
This holiday season, I decided to give something a try that I have been wanting to try for a long time. Homemade Vanilla Extract! Why? Because it’s fun! Also, I love making stuff in my own kitchen so I know exactly what is going into it. Did you know some vanilla extracts have preservatives? Sugar? Corn Syrup? Cr-aazy! This recipe has vanilla beans and vodka. How can you go wrong with that?
It would be very hard to go wrong with that.
Here is the very simple recipe-perfect for gift giving and so pretty to look at!
