Fact: I’m a self-professed, die-hard chocoholic. I keep a secret stash of the good stuff (lindt dark sea salt, baby) in a kitchen drawer and have been known to smear nutella on just about anything edible.
Fact: I don’t really like chocolate ice cream.
I know. I’m a freak… right? There must be something wrong with me. But give me good creamy vanilla soft serve with warm caramel sauce on top and I’ll love you forever.
Friends, let me introduce vanilla. The lone white wolf.
(the lone white wolf?)
What do you think of when you think of vanilla?
When I think of vanilla I think of cream, rich and whole, swirling into your coffee cup or into your pasta sauce.
I think of melting soft serve ice cream piled in crunchy waffles cones and eaten quickly, as to not spill a drop.
Chocolate may always have center stage, but in my opinion, nothing can beat vanilla in terms of clean and simple elegance. Chocolate chip cookies are delicious, but there’s just something truly special about biting into a chewy, warm vanilla cookie.
