When the barista at Starbucks described the new vanilla spice latte as having an "herbal, lavender taste," I couldn't shove my phone app in his face quick enough to pay. Ahhh, lavender. It may taste like soap to some, but it transports me to Provence (even though I've never been...that's how powerful it is) with its sweet, floral scent. Lavender simple syrup, shortbread, honey, cocktails, cheese...the possibilities are endless!

I picked up some honey lavender fromage blanc from Nettle Meadow Cheese last time I was impulsing shopping at Whole Foods. Paired with sweet and salty Z crackers, makes for a very sophisticated snack.

Do you like lavender in your food, or only in your hand soap?
