Food on Friday: Vanilla and Saffron

 ON

We are going to make a lovely collection today – of dishes using either vanilla or saffron – or maybe even both!  I 'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

To add your goodies to the collection, just put your name and the name of the dish into the first Mr Linky box and paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I have made up this Pinboard and will be pinning the links to it as they come in – or as soon as I can anyway!  By visiting or following the Pinboard you will be able to choose easily which dishes you want to check out in more detail.

  1. Hope you enjoy the light Indian dessert of yogurt & mango mousse flavoured with saffron. It's called Srikhand (sreekhund).

  2. Hi, Carole,
    Luckily we have a large Polish community in the west end of Winnipeg in Manitoba. So, a few weeks before Easter, saffron is easy to find for Paska baking.

Just added three of our Two Healthy Kitchens faves - Pineapple Orange Creamsicle Smoothies, and Strawberry Sundae Yogurt Ice Pops (both with vanilla yogurt and vanilla extract), plus Healthy Sugared-Vanilla Yogurt Fruit Dip. Hope you and your other readers will enjoy them, too! Thanks, Carole! :D
