Vanilla Extract Update

After three months of sitting, steeping, melding, and getting better with each day that passes......Homemade Vanilla Extract! Let's take a look. 

A few months ago I started a batch of Homemade Vanilla Extract to give away as gifts this Christmas season. What an easy gift to put together. This is where it started. You can see the beans and vodka all nice and fresh in the bottles on the first day.

Holiday Scents

What's that smell?

Okay, let's be honest, that question can be taken in two completely different ways. If you live with, or have lived with teenage boys, then you know this to be all too true. Luckily today I'm talking of things that smell good.

What's your scent? Is there a particular scent that you use during the Holidays? Something that just speaks to you and says "Christmas time"? I'd really like to hear your thoughts.
