Q: I have a bunch of fresh vanilla beans I'm itching to use up. (Painful problem to have, I know.) I'm having a few friends over and would love a recipe for a fairly easy, portable (i.e. non-cake), vanilla-laced dessert. Sent by Katie Editor: Katie, personally I feel like custards and puddings show off vanilla in the best way. Try this stirred egg custard or a crème brûlée. These are easy to transport, too; just serve them in mason jars with lids. Readers, what else would you recommend?
