Sounds like you bought imitation instead of pure extract. What brand did you buy? When I go to the store I only ever buy McCormicks. It's the only brand the stores sell that I trust.

Maybe a nice marinaded steak to start. It's easy to grill or even broil.

it says "caribena" extracto de vainilla blanca and it means white vanilla extract and it smells somewhat alcoholic, with a vanilla smell too. where do they sell mccormicks?

You bought Mexican white vanilla. As vanilla beans are dark, I wouldn't trust it. Where did you buy it? All regular grocery stores sell McCormicks (or Shillings for those on the west coast).

^^you can replace the vegetable stock by water and leave out potatoes, it would still taste awesome. I really love red lentil soup.

Try sole done under the broiler like this;
Mix equal parts parmesan, dijon and mayonnaise. Spread on fresh or thawed sole, although other white fish will do. Place under the broiler until the topping goes brown or slightly darker. (2-4 min) Simple, but tastes more sophisticated.

As they say, the proof is in the pudding. What did it taste like? Thats all that really matters at this point. You can work on presentation later. For now, get the basics.
