Vanilla Barbecue Sauce Recipes
Here at Beanilla, we love all the classic uses for vanilla: baking delicious cakes and cookies, making ice cream, and whipping up all sorts of sweet treats. But we also like to highlight applications that might not immediately spring to mind. Case in point, our recent post about Refreshing Summer Drinks, several of which include vanilla. With summer grilling season still going strong, we thought it would be fun to take things to an even more savory extreme by rounding up a selection of vanilla-infused barbecue sauce recipes to help you take your next cookout to the next level.
