Sponsor Spotlight: Nielsen-Massey Vanillas (Brownie Recipe)

One thing that I have always loved is baking for my friends and family. I love experimenting with new flavors and recipes. Nielsen Massey Vanillas allow me to do just that with my baking. I love all the different flavors of vanillas and extracts that Nielsen Massey offers. I also have to say that their Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla is delicious one of my favorites. I recently received their Pure Chocolate Extract to try and made gluten free brownies using. (Recipe Below) The brownies came out delicious, moist and perfect.
