Loving Lavender - Week 1 - Lavender Ice Cream

This is certainly one of my favorite times of year. Springis here after a long and sometimes cold winter, my garden is blooming, the spring flowers are in full bloom, the Texas blue bonnets and other wild flowers are here, spring vegetables are showing up in farmer's markets and grocery stores bringing with them boundless options for new fresh and delicious recipes. The other thing that comes along is lavender season. We recently went to a lavender festival in Fredericksburg, Texas. It was such a lovely festival with live music and all kinds of lavender inspired products. This inspired me to create several lavender dishes which I will be sharing over the next few weeks. Join me in May and June for my loving lavender series.!!!
