Springtime S’mores

Remember those Lemon Icebox Cookies? And those Lavender Marshmallows?Springtime S'mores

They were both pretty great, right?

Well let’s take a minute and put two and two together with a little dark chocolate.

That’s right, let’s make s’mores.

But why stop there? Let’s take these s’mores to the next level. Let’s add some fresh-cut strawberries:

The delicate flavors of each of the components of this dessert sandwich are rather chic & sophisticated yet the ooey gooey nature of this treat allows you to be a messy happy kid again.

So enjoy the subtle melding of flavors while you lick your fingers and giggle at the chocolate and marshmallow stuck to your friend’s face.

Lemonade ice cubes

Remember that lavender lemonade we told you about? Well, lemonade is great with a little ice, right?

But do you really like the watered down lemonade you get at the end of your glass?

If you answered yes to that last question, this post might not be for you, however look at these lovely lemonade ice cubes and maybe you’ll change your mind:

The cube on the left was made using blueberry lavender lemonade and the one on the right was made with lavender lemonade and a couple whole blueberries! You can use these cubes to keep your drink cool and keep the same intense flavor over time.

Wait. Blueberry lavender lemonade?!!

That’s right, just add a cup of blueberries when you make the simple syrup in this recipe. Let the blueberries cook over low heat until they pop and then you’ll get a simple syrup with a lovely blueberry taste!

Of course once you make the ice cubes you can put them in whatever you like. Here we put the blueberry lavender lemonade cubes into the lavender lemonade and got this pretty treat:blueberry lavender lemonade

Stay cool!
