I am so happy to back from vacation and sharing new recipes with you once again! I hope that your holidays were everything you hoped they might be. We spent our time in NM with family and friends; it was a very relaxing holiday. My sister and I had a ridiculous amount of fun cooking together while we were there and I can hardly wait to share all the great new foods with you this month!
In preparation for tomorrow’s post, you’re going to want to stir together a batch of this Simple Vanilla Syrup. You won’t regret it; I can promise you that right now. Drizzled into your coffee, tea, latte, or just about any other drink you like, this is one syrup you’ll want to keep on hand.
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 vanilla bean seeds scraped
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Combine the sugar, water, vanilla bean seeds, and scraped vanilla bean halves in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract and let the syrup cool. Pour into a jar and refrigerate until needed.
