This succulent roast chicken is light and bright with the addition of lemon and lavender. A layer of goat cheese with herbs is spread under the skin before baking which helps keep the meat tender and flavorful.
This light and refreshing Lemon Lavender Summer Spritz, made with the gorgeous, purple hued Empress Gin, is the cocktail we’ll be drinking all summer long. Let’s be honest, this beautiful tipple is pretty much spiked lemonade. But instead of plain simple syrup, we’ve infused it with dried lavender petals and pink peppercorns.
These gluten-free lemon lavender scones are bright with lemon and have subtle floral notes. They would be perfect at brunch, tea or on a special occasion buffet spread (think showers and spring holidays). They have a lightness to them with a delicate, but not overly soft crumb. The exterior of the scones provides a good amount of crunch. It’s sturdy enough to smear with butter or curd, but definitely not dry. And the lemony glaze is to die for.
