Lavender Is Food

My sister-in-law loves caramel. She also loves lavender. Her affection for these items are documented here and here. For her birthday present, lavender fleur de sel caramels were the obvious choice.

Happy Birthday Beth!

i can attested- as my sticky fingers hit the keys- that these little babies hit the perfect salty/sweet note i am always in search of...just gooey enough, but doesn't stick in your teeth...hot cup of earl grey to melt the whole bite away- and bite into another! good thing this nursing mother can take in an extra couple hundred calories. yummmmmmmmmmmm
