2014 Christmas Gift Guide: Nielsen-Massey Vanillas #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/14 #Christmasgiftguide #holidaygiftguide #NMVHolidays

A Century of Flavor cookbook is filled with 50 delectable recipes for anyone who appreciates the art of fine cooking (and eating). Whether for the novice cook or the seasoned chef, each will be delighted with this beautiful collection of timeless recipes and beautiful photographs.

Each dish incorporates one or more of our premium pure vanillas or flavors. Exquisite photos and helpful cooking tips accompany our easy-to-follow directions. This is the kind of cookbook you will want to keep close at hand, share with friends and use again and again!

I really like all of the recipes in this cookbook. I haven't had a chance to make any of them yet, but I plan to for Christmas. I never knew that you could enhance flavors of everyday dishes just by adding some vanilla to them!

The recipe for Vanilla Body Scrub from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, included below, is the perfect gift for friends, sisters, daughters, or anyone who deserves a bit of pampering this holiday season. Fragrant Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar gently exfoliates while olive oil moisturizes, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and rejuvenated.
