Go low vanilla

Vanilla prices fall by half!
If you bake at all, you will totally appreciate this! By half!!! I guess a huge crop has come to market (versus the natural disasters that caused the vanilla crop to be chopped in recent years), so all you bakers, go stock up! Or even if you don't bake, you can make vanilla sugar (a la Nigella Lawson) by sticking vanilla in a jar of sugar. Yummy yummy.

Or you can make your own vanilla extract by sticking a couple vanilla sticks into a jar of vodka (per the Barefoot Contessa).

Niiice... vanilla..
