Loving Lavender - Week 3 - Lavender and Blueberry Popsicles
Summer is here!!! My garden is in full bloom, summer vegetables are showing up in farmer's markets and grocery stores bringing with them boundless options for new fresh and delicious recipes. 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. Last time I shared my recipe for lavender nice cream. Summers in Texas can be really hot and I look forward to lazy afternoons spent at the pool. This week I am sharing my recipe for lavender popsicles which I will be cooling off with at the pool side this weekend. I hope you have enjoyed my loving lavender series!!!
