One of my favorite sites to visit daily is the kitchn at Apartment Therapy. It's a cooperative blog that has people who posted on living and cooking in small places. My kitchen definitely fits the bill with eight square ft of counterspace!
Last week, I was curious about this post, Buying Food On eBay. I've brought many things on Ebay but never food. I've been reading this blog for many months now, so over time I've grown to trust time. Isn't it crazy that you can develop affinities for people in cyberspace you've never met and will likely never meet. Anyway, I discovered that the company, The Organic Vanilla Bean Company, also has their own website. That's what I used instead of Ebay's site.
I paid 10 dollars for 20 pods. It was an unbelievable deal. They shipped that same day and I got them US Post within another couple of days. Great service, great price, and great beans. Now, I just have to figure out how to properly convert all my recipes that require vanilla extract to use vanilla bean instead. I've got some work cut out for me.
