Lavender Lemon Bars

Lavender Lemon Bars | From SugarHero.com

Look, I’m a simple girl with simple needs. I like my slippers fuzzy, and my gossip magazines trashy. I like my water cold and my chocolate hot, unless we’re talking about showers and ice cream, in which case, you should reverse that. And often, I like my desserts with a whiff of the flower garden…

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies

Valentine’s Day may be long gone, but you will have to pry my heart-shaped cookie cutter from my cold, dead hands.* We’re talking shortbread cookies today, and I’m convinced that shortbread tastes best when cut into twee heart shapes, dipped in chocolate, and sprinkled with colorful accents. Don’t ask why, and don’t even think about…

Chocolate Rose Cupcakes

Happy Valentine’s Day! Have I ever told you you’re my favorite? Because you are. Yes, you. (All those other people reading this think I’m pointing at them, but it’s definitely you.) In this season where we celebrate love and friendship, I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a second to thank you for reading, and…

Lavender Hot Chocolate

One of the best things about being an adult is getting to make and eat whatever the heck you want. When I was younger, I imagined that once I got to actually choose what I could eat, I would have a lot of doughnut breakfasts, cookie lunches, and pizza dinners. It only took about two…

Lavender Rose Ice Cream

With this recipe, my transition into Official Old Lady is complete. The truth is, I’ve had old lady tendencies my whole life.  One of my favorite hobbies is talking scornfully about kids these days, and I’ve been yelling at (proverbial) punks to get off my (proverbial) lawn for at least the last decade. I’m basically…

Raspberry-Rose Cake Recipe

As a southern Californian, I don’t know that I can talk about the arrival of spring with a straight face. While it’s not true that we “don’t have seasons,” as so many transplants are fond of complaining (usually spoken while wearing flip-flops in January and waving around an iced coffee), our seasonal changes are not…

Raspberry-Pistachio Turkish Delight

Can you guess what our family’s costume theme was for Halloween this year? Yes, we were The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. And you’d better believe that the wardrobe was fully functional and opened to reveal a beautiful view of Narnia. “Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I am ridiculous. And also obsessive. And…

Chocolate-Lavender Pie

Chocolate and lavender. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. Chocolate…and lavender? I’ll admit, chocolate and lavender isn’t quite the classic pairing of, say, chocolate and peanut butter. But despite how iffy the combination might seem, this pie made me a believer. Turns out they are two great tastes that taste great…
