Everyone loves my mom's food. She makes the most amazing homemade, from-scratch meals….or so I thought. You know what I discovered was the secret to her cooking prowess? Seasoning packets! I already knew about the addiction to bouillon cubes, but I didn't know she added a sloppy joe mix to add extra flavor to our family's favorite summer party meal! I also was surprised to find out that her succulent made-from-scratch gravy she always made with the roast and mashed potatoes also had a packet or two of the mushroom gravy mix added to it. And that's just the beginning! In her pantry I found gravy mixes of all kind, chili seasoning, spaghetti sauce mixes, and more. At first I felt betrayed....and then I thought, why didn't she tell me this sooner! Now I know the secrets for more flavor and quicker dishes too.
Something as simple as the food flavorings you use (or don't use) can make or break that special recipe. Explore the enticing variety of natural and artificial flavorings, from your more common vanilla extract to something a little more exotic, like coconut or rum. Let your imagination flow as you think of the amazing foods you can create!
Like most of us, vanilla is probably your number one go-to flavoring. With good reason! It seems to be the perfect complement for baked goods and is found in a large majority of our recipes. All vanilla is not created equal, however. Here you'll find a vanilla extract to suit your needs, whether it be award winning double strength, natural Madagascar Bourbon, or maybe you prefer a more cost effective artificial vanilla. Whatever your taste, you'll find it here!
When we think of food flavorings, we usually think of baked goods or frostings. Have you ever added a drop of mint or lemon extract in your water for a refreshing twist? Or added a hint of caramel to your favorite fudge brownies? What about a tease of root beer in your next barbecue? Have fun looking through the flavors. Hopefully you'll find something that will inspire you to try something new! Grab some food colorings here for more fun things to do with your food.

Whether it's coloring your mashed potatoes green for St. Patricks Day, your breadsticks orange for Halloween, or your pancakes purple for Easter, changing the color of your foods really makes a statement. It breaks the monotony of the daily routine and, especially for kids, creates memories that will last. They may not remember what they got that Valentine's Day, but they will remember the red heart shaped rolls! For more creative ways to entertain with food, try new flavors!
