I have many dried herbs in my kitchen. One that I love making tea with is lavender. I crush a small amount and add it to green teas. I have the caffeine from the green tea, but the calming nature of the lavender. Or just using the lavender alone puts me to a peaceful sleep. There's something about it that makes me just want to take a large inhale, followed by a satisfying sigh. In the early spring, I've also used small amounts in fresh salad dressings.

I currently have a lot (truly a lot) of lavender. I am on a hunt to find more culinary uses for it. If you have any ideas, please share!

    Oh, this picture is breath taking! I appreciate lavender and all its culinary uses, as well. I love it in lemonade, crabmeat salads, and baked goods!
