As you all know, I LOVE to bake and I was thrilled when I was asked to review the Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and Flavorings. Nielsen Massey has been known as a producer of top quality vanillas for over a century. The company was founded in 1907. They have always been, and still are, a family-owned business and are now run by the third generation of the Nielsens. The line of Nielsen Massey products is extensive – with vanillas from Madagasar, Tahiti and Mexico; vanilla powders, sugars and pastes and flavorings including pure chocolate extract, pure almond extract, pure orange extract, pure coffee extract – just to name a few. My daughter, Nicole, uses the Nielsen Massey Vanilla paste and absolutely loves it. Whatever your baking needs — Nielsen Massey has a flavoring or vanilla for you!
I decided to use the Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla and bake my Mom’s Old Fashioned Pecan Pie. For the complete recipe, click here: Vickie’s Mom’s Old Fashioned Pecan Pie. This recipe has been in my family for years but I have to say it tasted even better with the Nielsen Massey Madagascar Vanilla!

I have only started playing with the other samples they sent me: Pure Almond Extract, Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract, Pure Chocolate Extract and Mexican Pure Vanilla Extract, but I am amazed at how much each one adds to a recipe.
The Nielsen Massey website has lots of information about all of their products and a wonderful section packed full of great recipes. If you want to get inspired, click here to check out their recipe section: Nielsen Massey Recipes. Here you will see recipes ideas from appetizers and baked goods to drinks and entrees. My favorite was the Ribs with Smoky Vanilla BBQ Sauce!
And speaking of recipes, Nielsen Massey has a great new cookbook out : A Century of Flavor Nielsen Massey Vanillas. It is a beautiful cookbook with tons of full color pictures and many delicious recipes. I can’t wait to try the Vanilla Caramel Corn Crunch this weekend!
Cooking and baking is so enjoyable for me and I love to use quality products. The Nielsen Massey line of vanillas and flavorings will help you create all kinds of flavorful foods!
