Short-bread type cookies are often used as a base for adding lavender and with good reason. I found this recipe and it's become one of my favorites.
These small tea cookies are great for serving in the afternoon. The combination of lavender along with the almond flavoring makes it a unique choice but one of my favorites. I almost always have the ingredients on hand as well so this is my go-to recipe when I need a treat.
I love a good blueberry muffin so it was a happy surprise when I found this recipe. This is a fresh blueberry muffin recipe that contains lavender as an accompanying flavor.
The first time I made them, I didn't pay attention to the amounts of lavender recommended and ended up having a little too much extra in them. I found that sticking with the recipe measurements made for a much better muffin.
This recipe also is great because the muffins get better over time. I usually try to make them a day ahead to let the lavender flavor spread throughout the entire muffin.
I haven't done much baking with lavender and chocolate as a combination. However, I was at a chocolate store and saw that they had chocolate truffles with lavender.
That inspired me to try my own hand at making truffles. The delicate flavor of the herb paired well with milk chocolate and they also look great when done. I love making them for gifts and they're fairly simple to make as well.
I often see the combination of lavender and earl gray tea and with good reason. This recipe lets you add or omit the earl gray tea but I'd highly recommend it. It's a mild cheesecake but it makes a great presentation.
This is one of my favorite dishes to make in the spring and summer. It's a crowd-pleasing dessert and even people who might not like lavender usually come back for seconds.
When I realized that lavender paired well with honey, I was eager to try this recipe and it's become one of my favorites to make. What sets this recipe apart is that the chicken takes on an earthy flavor that makes it a stand out dish.
The combination of honey and lavender with the other spices and herbs gives a power packed punch to this dish. I've used it for other types of poultry as well but it's one of my favorites when I have chicken in the house.
I’m a foodie that’s slightly obsessed with drying fruits, veggies, beans, and more – especially from my own garden! It started as a hobby but became a “must” when my family fell on hard times, and my dried food stash sustained us. Now I’m always experimenting with different techniques and recipes and sharing them here!
