DIY: vanilla extract.

I've decided that I'm going to try to make more cookies in 2011.  I need all the help I can get when baking, so when I got this gift for Christmas I was excited.  Maybe a little too excited?... nooo!  Thanks, Cam! 

Rose & Ivy makes this vanilla infusion kit so anyone can make their own vanilla extract.  Only two ingredients, this couldn't be easier, and probably way healthier than extracts loaded with chemicals and flavoring.  I love vanilla and I love vodka, so I can't wait to see how this comes out.  I wish I didn't have to wait 6 months for it to age!  I'll let you know how it comes out in July!

I couldn't find a link to this particular kit, but here is a recipe from food network anyone can try.
