Lavender follow-up: Recipes

Hey, Mrs. Crafty,

Just in case you want to cook up a few things with your lavender bushes (before they get evicted), I've got some good recipes bookmarked. Here are my top four:

1. Fresh Lemon and Lavender Ice Cream from Emeril

2. Lavender Vanilla Sugar from Joy the Baker
PS - Joy the Baker is not married, but I feel like she'd be really, totally fine with an endorsement from a couple old married ladies. I adore her blog, and you should read it for decadent baking inspiration, cocktail recipes, or occasional cute kitty pics.

Suggested use: Roasted Pears with Blackberries, Ricotta and Lavender Sugar from Epicurious

3. Lavender Shortbread from Gale Gand

4. Lemon and Lavender Buttermilk Cake from The Cake Blog 

BONUS: Not a food, but this lavender sugar scrub looks pretty good!

Hope that helps use up your lavender stash!

Mrs. Snacky
