    Why would people do that? Is this some secret thing I don't know about?

    Not usually. I hardly drink and I definitely don't encourage it. However if I am making a chicken risotto or something I add wine and yes my children eat everything we eat. It's also full of protein, vegies, etc.

    It's the modernised version of rubbing rum on your kids gums to help with teething. I'm guessing people don't realise that vanilla essence is 65% alcohol and vanilla extract is 35%.

    I don't cook with alcohol very often. I made beef with beer in the slow cooker last winter and DS had a few bites. I didn't even consider the alcohol content TBH.
    I use vanilla bean paste in baking. I'm actually not sure if it contains alcohol?

    Of course I do. It's the only way to get them to sleep most nights. Killing two birds..

    Yes I have, but I hardly ever cook with alcohol. I've only done it about 3 times and DS is fine

    Better than dabbing the dummy in straight wisky!!
