something infused with lavender ... I made a delicious cake a number of years ago from Gourmet - meyer lemon cake with lavender cream - decadent yet still simple and divine.
or some sort of cocktail?

jennifer said...

Lavender shortbread is also pretty tasty. Or, chamomile and lavender tea.

Ringo, have a banana! said...

I'm dying to try making this:

mmm looks like you have a good tea here (lavender rosemary mint), or put in a bag and tie onto the spout of the bath and let the water run over it. or put in a jar of olive oil and shake everyday for awhile. or crème brûlée... i could go on and on:))))

lavender makes a nice relaxing tea mixed with some chamomile :)

oh, so pretty on that piece of craft paper. and the mist on the first image - so beautiful.

we recently poached cod in coconut milk, orange blossom water, lavender pods and a bit of honey. it was insanely good!!

or... also i love a pinch of lavender when i melt dark chocolate for handrolled truffles. strain it out in the end, and it imparts the most delicate floral essence...

yum! there is a cafe here in seattle that serves a grilled baguette sandwich with brie, thinly sliced apples, a small drizzle of honey, and lavender flowers. so good!

I suggest you chocolate lavender ice cream

montmarte said...

wow, thanks everyone!
these all sound so incredibly good.

i recently tied up some fresh lavender sprigs and hung them in my bathroom. the shower freshens up the bathroom with lavender steam! it's lovely.

i like to sprinkle some lavender in my kukicha. perfect green floral nuttiness.

Lavender in Lemonade is fantastic!

Lavender panna cotta - easy and refreshing and light! Top it with candied lemons or rhubarb or what have you.

Len said...

lavender butter! Like garlic butter but different & delicous

Or if you love the smell you can just dry it and put some of it in your cubord or somewhere in your room
