Is it odd that I get really excited about ingredients? That looking through a King Arthur Flour catalog brings me more pleasure than reading some teen girl magazine? So here's a list of ingredients I've been dying to work with. Feel free to make suggestions on other things to add, or good places to procure said ingredients. And, y'know, I'm always happy to accept gifts... :)

- matcha powder (accomplished with Chocolate Matcha Swirl Bread!)

- vanilla beans  (accomplished with Vanilla Roses Cake!)
