When you're baking and run out of vanilla, you don't have many options: You've got to stop what you're doing and run off to the grocery store. Oh well. It happens...even to me! But you can make the most of your shopping. When I ran out of vanilla in the middle of a batch of cookies the other night, I strode up and down the aisles mumbling some slightly altered lyrics to "Bad Romance":
Where's the va-nil-la?
Oh no. Out, out, out.
Want to bake cook-ies.
I'm not sure how many looks I got, but at least I had fun.
