Here’s a very easy-to-make frosting that comes together in minutes, using only four ingredients. It’s classic, but not boring - the whole vanilla bean brings so much flavor to even the most basic cake. By making some easy substitutions, like adding in cocoa powder or stirring in rosewater, this turns into a really versatile staple for any budding baker’s repertoire.
Here are eight foods/meals/ideas that we make ALL the time, especially with warmer weather coming. These take very little prep time, minimal ingredients, and have staying power. I think I consumed at least half of these in the last week! If you want staple food ideas beyond salads & tacos (my mainstays), try a couple of these out this summer :)
