Singing Dog Vanilla - CLOSED


If there is one thing that can transform a recipe from good to great, I'd have to say that would be using real vanilla beans. If you have never experienced the scent and flavor of using vanilla beans, you are really missing out - and today is your chance to be able to experience it!!

Singing Dog Vanilla grows their vanilla beans organically without use of any pesticides or chemicals. Their vanilla products contain no sugar or corn syrup which gives you pure vanilla taste.

  58. I just finished surfing thru their website and all I can say is why haven't I seen this before. I know we're here for the vanilla but I couldn't resist looking at the cinnamon and OMG the pepper. I use vanilla beans for a dense chocolate mousse that is garnished with a vanilla bean sauce that gets raves from everyone who tastes it. Although,the recipe they have for vanilla bean cheesecake is something I am definitely going to make.
    Great website. Thank-you!!!
