Oh, hey. I’m Corrin. You weren’t expecting me, were you? This is my first guest post ever, and I’m super excited because I get to post on a blog that I’m a huge fan of on a topic that I can’t get enough of. Food!
I work in food marketing communications, which means that my clients are national food manufacturers, and I coordinate their brochures, advertising, packaging, and best of all…recipe development! We have a chef on staff who is fabulous at whipping up the best recipes that incorporate our client’s products, plus a food photographer and stylist that make sure we have the best pictures to make the recipes look as scrumptious as they taste.
The recipes that I love the most were developed for a Chicago company known for their vanilla extracts. Now, I don’t get paid enough to run around the internet plugging the company, but I do love their cookbook enough to share my favorite recipe, which just so happens to be the simplest:
Vanilla Honey Butter
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons sifted confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients using an electric mixer until creamy and smoother on muffins, bagels, toast, or just eat with a spoon (the most shameful, and my favorite, way to sample).
If you’d like a super special bottle of vanilla extract that was specially aged for the company’s 100 year anniversary, head on over to my blog and I will send a bottle to the first 12 people that leave a comment on any post using the keyword “vanilla.”
