Nielsen-Massey Vanillas Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #189!
I am not a chef, not even remotely close to being one. I am just a housewife who cooks daily and bakes regularly for her family. To be honestly, I am not much for an expert when it comes to vanilla extract. I do use a lot of it in my cooking, but I just buy whatever I can find at the supermarket. When I was given the chance to review Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, I was eager to give its products a try. I received the Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract as well as the Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Powder to review.
As I have said before, I am not a chef. Even though I might not be the best cook in the kitchen, I do know what I like and I liked Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. I used the Nielsen-Massey Vanillas I received to bake cookies, make homemade ice cream as well as pancakes and cinnamon buns. I did not think that the vanilla would make any difference, but I was surprised to find that the vanilla smelled wonderful and I thought that my food tasted just a tad bit better ;). It seems like using high quality products really did make a difference in the food I made for my family. I did not tell my family that I am using different vanillas in my cooking, I am taking full credit for the yummy food I made ^_^.

The best part of using Nielsen-Massey Vanillas? Besides the fact that they are great products? Well, they are organic! Now your food can taste good and be good for you too. To buy your own Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, please check its site to locate a retail store near you.

Many thanks to Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. The company has generously offered the same products I received as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla is especially suited to rich foods such as ice cream and buttercream. Pieces of whole Madagascar vanilla beans can also add rich aromatics to potpourri for a pleasing air freshener.
