Magic Beans.

As promised, here is the most amazing thing you could possibly do with your homemade Dulce de Leche. Ok, maybe not the most amazing thing, but certainly the most amazing thing that I'm currently aware of. If you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them!

I recently bought a bulk pack of fifty bourbon vanilla beans. I haven't used extract in months and I'll never look back. Vanilla beans are far sweeter with a brighter, potent flavour without the alcohol aftertaste and they have those adorable little specs to decorate your food. Like built in sprinkles! These truly are the magic beans Jack was talking about.

We bought an entire case of peaches so the pie was absolutely essential. I can't have all that peachy goodness going to waste now can I? It was fate. A match made in heaven. Sweet peaches with velvety Dulce de Leche, flaky vanilla bean crust and top it all off with fresh vanilla bean whipped cream. It's a triple vanilla experience! My mind is blown!


Sweet Of The Milk.

I'm going to have to make this quick because I literally have a bajillion things too too today. Have you ever had one of those weeks where you're so busy you can't even find the time to go to the bathroom? Yeah that's me right now and the week just started!

I have so much to do before our trip to Ontario it's not even funny. Not to mention a certain birthday party for a certain 12 year old.

Maybe you've tried Dulce de Leche. Maybe you haven't. Maybe you eat it by the spoonful like me. Did you know it was so easy to make? All you need is some milk, sugar, vanilla and a little free time. If I found the time to make it so can you!

PS: Watch out for a delicious way to use this Dulce de Leche in the next couple of days...


Oh, Cookie You’re So Fine!

Oh Cookie, what a pity you don't understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
Oh Cookie, you're so pretty, can't you understand
It's sweets like you Cookie
Oh, what you do Cookie, do Cookie
Don't break my heart, Cookie
Hey Cookie!


So I took a few creative liberties with the song. I'm sure Toni Basil won't mind.

You're going to have that song stuck in your head all day now aren't you? Why not make the cookies to go along with it. Seriously. Do yourself a flavour favour and make these. The singing is seriously recommended but strictly optional.

In these cookies is the first time I ever ate dulce de leche. Ok wait, scratch that. The first time I ate it was moments earlier with my finger straight out of the freshly opened jar. Could you blame me? I don't regret it. I admit it proudly. Once you just smell it you'll understand. It's irresistible.
