Why buy food coloring when you can make your own? Not only is it easy, but you can make beautiful colors using natural ingredients. This one is the coolest type ever, a natural, color changing food coloring!
Good quality extracts can make such a difference in cooking! Baking sugar cookies? Vanilla is wonderful, but add some almond extract and now you really have a special treat. Or a touch of orange extract in the frosting on a chocolate cake. Pure extracts can be pricey, but you can easily make them at home for a lot less. Package them in attractive jars, and you have a unique item for gift giving.
