Make Your Own Vanilla Extract Gifts (2nd Recipe I've Found)

I found this link @ Kitchen project

Make Your Own Vanilla Extract Gifts  
Steven Block (we are in no way affiliated, just fans)  also has supplies available for purchase



Purchase premium grade vanilla beans and premium vodka.  

Ingredients:
2 Cups (16 oz.) vodka (40%?)
Vodka is my preference but you may also use brandy.
6 Vanilla Beans

 Cut the vanilla beans  long way except the last inch. This way the bean remains intact. 

Pour  vodka into  container you will be making your extract in. i.e. Clear quart mason jar.
The darker it gets the stronger the extract is. Timing is not an exact science but at least  8 weeks is recommended. 

Put the cut beans in the vodka and push them down until they are covered.
Cover the vanilla extract and let it sit in a cupboard out of the light.  How long you let it sit is how potent your vanilla extract.

After 8 weeks the vanilla extract has the nice amber color and and you may strain it into small bottles for gifts.  You may put a vanilla bean in each bottle so that the extract will keep gaining in flavor and you may add a little vodka when it is halfway used up will replenish your supply of vanilla. It will dilute it for a while but it will regain strength quickly. 

There are also other amazing recipes @ this website.  Thank you Kitchen Project!!  I'm making several variations until I get my own version that works for my recipes.  Will update blog as I go.

Freddie Mercury Quotes: Ten Life Lessons

Found the below-mentioned quotes at Love & Pride Website; they sell  Love Made In Heaven Collection inspired by the final album of Queen.  Their website sates that a portion of purchase price of their Love Made In Heaven Collection (jewelery)  goes to the Mercury Phoenix Trust 


1. Aim for the Top
"You have to believe in yourself, no matter how long it takes....At the start I knew we were going to be huge - and we were. There was never a doubt in my mind. Never...You have to have that kind of confidence in this business. If you like the icing on top, and all the trimmings, you’ve got to have the confidence to go get it."

2. Battle the Baddies
"Once you are successful all the baddies move in and that is when you've got to be really strong and try and sift them out...Everyone who's successful will always be burnt once or twice. That's kind of a classic rule. Just call it experience.

3. Money Can't Buy Happiness, But...
"I love buying gifts for people. That's the biggest thrill...Money may not be able to buy happiness, but it can damn well give it!

4. Go Overboard
"The concept of Queen was to be regal and majestic. Glamour was part of us, and we wanted to be dandy. We wanted to shock and be outrageous....If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing ..."

5. Be a Bitch
"I actually enjoy being a bitch. I enjoy being surrounded by bitches. I certainly don't go looking for the most perfect people because I'd find that boring."

6. Treat Your Lover
"I spoil my lovers terribly. I like to make them happy and I get so much pleasure out of giving them wonderful, expensive presents..."

7. Take a Risk
"I love the challenge and I love doing things that are not part of the mainstream. Sometimes if that works it works in a very big way, or else it can be a very big flop, but I'm willing to take that risk."

8. Never Be Boring
"Boredom and dullness are the biggest diseases in the whole world, dears. You can never say that life with me is boring. Excess is a part of my nature....I don't do things by halves. I can shift from one extreme to the other quite easily. I don't like anything in between. Grey has never been a favorite color of mine."

9. Live Life
"It sounds precocious, but I knew what I wanted. And if it all ended tomorrow, I would do it all again on my own terms...I'm in it for the challenge. I don't want it made too easy for me and nobody hands it to me on a silver platter. I'd hate that. And I'd refuse it anyway....I like living life to the full. That's my nature, and I'm just not going to conform or listen to people about how I should react. I do what I want to do. That's something inbred, that's part of me. I've always been like this."

10. It's All About Love
"I'm possessed by love. Isn’t everybody? Most of the songs I write are love ballads and things to do with sadness and torture and pain...But there is always an element of humor at the end....I think to sing and write about love is actually limitless...I'm a true romantic, just like Rudolf Valentino."
