Honey-Lavender Shortbread (gluten-free)

I love lavender; the sweet smell of a French countryside, it’s ability to soothe my thoughts while soaking in a tub, and the endless possibilities of what to do with this beautifully fresh-cut herb.

 

Fresh Cut Lavender

Fresh cut lavender on parchment paper ready for natural sun-drying.

When using fresh lavender for soaps, scrubs, sachets, or in this case, Honey-Lavender Shortbread (gluten-free), it is best to pick the lavender just before it blossoms. You may dry it in the sun or in a low temperature oven. Drying in the oven makes your house smell divine! I assume some of you have never heard of eating lavender. The first time I ate lavender was at a quaint little French restaurant where they served Lavender Creme Brulee. The first bite was, “Hmm, this is different”. The next bite was “Ooh, I really like this!” And then it was gone. I was nearly licking the ramekin clean!

When cooking with lavender it is very important to remember that a little goes a long way. You don’t want to end up feeling like you’re eating perfume!

I only used one tablespoon of lavender in this batch of Honey-Lavender Shortbread (gluten-free), and it was just perfect. A hint of lavender is all you need.

    This sounds lovely, and with the chocolate it reminds me of one of my favorite chocolate bars with dried blueberries and lavender, made by Dagoba. If I make this, maybe I’ll toss in a handful of them as well :)

      Ooh, yes! Or maybe chop the blueberries and add it to the dark chocolate before dipping. So many options!

that way you actually get good guides In the 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli with Madeleine Vionnet rose to prominence. Both were known for their innovative designs while not shattering the fundamentals of fashion. Schiaparelli became popular with her black knitted white bow. In addition to their well stocked inventory, you'll find dozens of dresses under "clearance sale" where you could pick up a designer beaded dress in the mid $100s. Choose from animal print, solids, paisley, sequined, chiffon and more for a custom look that's uniquely you. Featured designers include Betsy Johnson, Shelli Segal, Shoshanna, Tracey Reese, Nicole Miller, Anna Sui and Faviana. Joining me on the call is our Chairman and CEO, Mr. Qiming Xu. Please note that we will be making a number of forward looking statements today and all such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations and assumptions mentioned today, due to a variety of factors that affect the company, including risk specified in the most recently filed Form 20 F.. Of course the fun does not end when you turn off the computer. You can play the fashion games any time, and this is the area that adults especially truly enjoy. The adult can head to the department store and gather up any number of terrific outfits to try on. See if the stones are set by prongs. The prong placements also set Juliana apart, by giving it a claw like appearance, which is far from the traditional setting. Since Juliana jewelry was handmade or handset, you can expect that every piece is set by a prong. While mainstream men kept it close cropped with side parts and slicked back dos, many guys sported long hair in an effort to blur gender lines and shake traditional standards of masculinity. In the late 1960s, some African American men embraced the trend popularized by the civil rights based is beautiful movement, adopting natural hairstyles and a wardrobe influenced by an African aesthetic, including brimless kofia hats. Horn rimmed glasses, aviators and large frames made a bold mark on eyewear during this fashionable decade.. The first five episodes of Aquarian Age are interesting in how they play out. With a lot of series, be it short like this or a full season show, would do what these five episodes do in the space of one or two episodes normally. For a half season show to do the first five episodes like this is surprising but it seems to really work in its favor.black porn
