10 Best For the Love of Lavender

By Chanel Dror

Happy Friday, everyone! What do you all have planned for the weekend? Here in Texas we’re beginning to slowly feel early-summer transitioning into mid-summer, where temps are going to continue skyrocketing and all of Spring’s beautiful blooms will sadly start dying away. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I (Chanel) was spending some time gardening, so this weekend I’d love to snip a bunch of the herbs we’ve be growing (plus whatever veggies will be ripe), and put together a few super delicious and seasonal dishes. Though lavender doesn’t grow wild in Texas, it’s so quintessentially summery that I’m just dying to incorporate it into a few of this weekend’s creations. I’m dreaming that next June I’ll find myself wandering through the lavender fields of Provence, but until then I’ll be baking and brewing in their honor here at home. Click through to see some of my favorite lavender creations, and I’d love to hear of any more that should be added to the list!
