Looking to mix things up in the kitchen? Here are 20 recipes that use lavender that will inspire you to try cooking with lavender.
One of my favorite essential oils without question is lavender.
Not only do I love the way it smells, but I also love all the many things that it does. As a Mom, it is one oil that I am almost never without. From cuts and bruises to abrasions, lavender always has my back.
Despite my love for lavender essential oil, I have to confess that cooking with lavender is something that I haven't done. Thanks to our travel lifestyle, it has been years since I've had a garden and it isn't often that I see lavender in the grocery store.
I happened to run across a potted plant a few weeks back, and it got me to thinking about what I could do with lavender in the kitchen. A quick Pinterest search and I was shocked to find all the variety of recipes with lavender that are out there.
And wow...do they look good.
