This theme has proven that is not a well loved ingredient Lavender to be used. Too much of it will make the dish smell and taste like eating potpourri. And also lavender is mostly associated with scented candles, soap and clothes softener. So I have to applaude everyone that join the party and had fun with it. We have sweet, savoury and even body lotion! Amazing collection of lavender dishes and a whole lot of creativity. There are combinations of flavour that I never thought could work together worked and looked fantastic.
So here we go, let’s check out what everyone has created. Some of you may be converted to like lavender a little more after this

What I can confirm is that lavender and chocolate are best friends. They compliment each other. There are so many tips from everyone that I enjoyed reading and learning. The effort that everyone made is overwhelming. Lavender is not found everywhere and in some countries, they are a rarity. So thanks again.
Salt is the ingredient for next month’s theme. It is such an important ingredient in cooking and baking. And in recent months, many has been showcasing its versality. There are so many different types of salt. I am that many will find this very interesting. Also I will be away from the 19th till the 29th of November but this party must go on. So I am looking for co-host/s especially if your birthday falls in November.
Next party date – 21st of November. Please sign up on linky and add a comment (so I have your email) as I will need to send you an email in regards to the linky script and also any changes or updates that may happen prior as I am currently testing a new format and trying to make this as simple and easy for everyone.
