"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

Extracts and Flavorings

You know, an entire world of extracts and flavorings exist beyond the handful I have in my spice cabinet. I find myself strangely fascinated and wondering about the sorts of recipes that call for flavorings such as cotton candy, salt water taffy, peanut butter, or bubblegum.

If any of you just happen to find yourselves on a website or watching a TV program that advocates using flavors such as these, here's a link that you may find very helpful.
I was stunned to discover that some of the ones I thought were the product of someone's vivid imagination actually existed!!

Cool! One time I found Marshmallow Extract at my favorite baking supply shop so I used it to make s'mores cupcakes. I did my usual vanilla buttercream but with the marshmallow extract substituted in. The rest was a chocolate cupcake with a graham cracker crust, topped with chopped Hershey bars and I blow-torched a big marshmallow melted on top of the icing. Those things were so yummy.
