TL Nutritious Lavender & Chocolate Chip Cookies November 21 2014
Welcome to Terra Lavanda! TL green & purple lavender fields have now departed into a period of winter rest, just to recover and return in abundance in the new season!
We take this extra free time to share with you lavender recipes from our kitchen. Recreated from our memory after a wonderful experience in a small country café; we just added some walnuts to spice it up!
