For those of you who don't know, St. Louis holds a special place in the hearts of Rebekah and Neil. They went to college in St. Louis.
What does all of this have to do with recipes? Allie from Baking A Moment has a butter cake with its origins in St. Louis and it takes us down memory lane. Also, our stomachs rumble -- it looks amazing.
Please, pour out the love to Allie at Baking A Moment and visit her wonderful site and explore her wonderful recipes.
Everyone of her posts have a 'My 2 Cents' section. This one is quite flattering to Lágrima - *ahem*. Head on over to Tried and Tasty for some humor and apple passion. We just love her!
Who doesn't love cheesecake?!? It is cheese after all so it must be healthy. Don't worry about the butter, sugar and cream.
We met Yvonne at a vanilla party in Salt Lake City in early November and became instant fans with her site: Tried and Tasty. She posted this wonderful recipe just in time for the holidays. Plus, her post is hilarious and she is a fan of Lágrima. What else could one want in life?
We woke up to a delightful surprise this morning and learned of a new convert to vanilla broadly and Lágrima vanilla specifically. It is rare to find someone who doesn't like vanilla. Vanessa could be considered a 'hard sell'. The view here at Lágrima was that she just hadn't encountered the right vanilla in the right recipe.
Long story short - Vanessa found that magical combination in her Sweet-Lab and told the world us as much with her post and recipe for Vanilla Cake with Black Tea Caramel. But don't take our word for it, read for yourself - Vanessa made our day, I hope she makes yours, too. We are happy to have her on board as a Lágrima vanilla fan.
Well, here is a work of art that you can eat. Jennifer Farley of Savory Simple has combined two of our favorite flavors (her's too) into this masterful layer cake. Her photography is delightful; her use of vanilla is generous (tablespoons!) plus she uses the vanilla beans themselves. We can't do the recipe or the imagery justice here - click on over to Savory Simple and see for yourself.
