Common Questions

What is simple syrup?

Simple syrup is a basic combination of equal parts water to sugar. It’s made by stirring the mix over heat for 5-7 minutes until it thickens and becomes like “syrup”.

which vanilla do you use in this iced coffee with vanilla recipe?

I absolutely love this Vanilla Bean Paste. A little goes a long way and it’s so creamy and delicious.

How can I store the simple syrup?

You can store your simple syrup in the fridge because this makes more than you will need. Keep in mind the syrup will solidify, so when you want to use it again you have to reheat it on the stove or in the microwave.

In addition to this Iced Coffee with Vanilla, you can use the vanilla simple syrup to sweeten up hot coffee or tea, in a cocktail or mocktail (such as an espresso martini, or vanilla martini). You can also use it in a cake icing, drizzled over fresh fruit or even added to sparkling water.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
