You're So Vanilla

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

When did "vanilla" become such a bad thing? Often associated with words like boring, mundane, dull, etc., it has acquired quite a bad rap. It's even defined on Wikipedia as "Having no special or extra features; ordinary." Well what do they know! As bakers, we know that one of the best flavors out there is vanilla. Sweet and subtle, aromatic and distinct - vanilla lends itself to so many combinations of flavors and can enhance many delicious baked goods.

Here at Chicago Bakers Anonymous, we LOVE vanilla. So work your magic and show those naysayers who's boss. Rock on, vanilla!

 

PLEASE NOTE: We have a new location for this event! One of our regular members, Pierre, has offered to host this month. His place is lovely and seems like a wonderful spot for an event. Any questions, please feel free to ask. We hope you can all join us!

    Hi
    Sorry for changing RSVP at last moment. I am not feeling well.
    Was very hungry today after my clinical and decided to eat the yogurt that was left in the car under the sun for many hours...

    Sorry but can't make this one today, forgot that I had to help a friend move.

    I'm coming from the South Loop and am thinking I'll need to take the train -- Is our location near the train or bus?

      I'll be sending out info for the meetup location today. Keep an eye on your inbox!

    Hello everyone!
    I'm sorry, cannot make it Saturday. I have to be in the burbs helping mom. Hopefully I will see you all at the next one!

    Happy eating...

    I am so sorry to miss this meetup, but something has come up. I hope to make it to one soon.

      We hope to see you at another one soon! : )

    I find it deeply ironic that the location will be bumped out to the west side of town *after* I move into town. So much for cutting the commute in half at any point.

      Indeed. That would make it much more fun.

    Yea! I'm so excited I get to come to this one -- I love vanilla! Because I'm new to this -- what are the rules? We bake and bring something to share? How much? Maybe these questions are answered somewhere else -- sorry if I'm being pesty :)

      Hi Mary - Yes, you bake something at home based on the theme and bring it to share. As far as how much, that's up to you, but I would suggest checking to see how many people are coming and make sure there's enough for everyone.

    I joined the wait list but did not pay in advance as it asked. Is that ok? I was thinking if a space opens up, I will pay at that time?

    September 13, 2013

    • Mindy

      Yep - that's right! : )

    I sort of have an obsession in creating the ultimate perfect vanilla cupcake :) may I challenge anyone to a bake off, or a blind taste test ? :)
