Lavender Ice Cream - gluten-free and vegan

I hope you have had a really wonderful week! I’m still at the hard landscaping – it is back breaking work but with some very exciting dog sitting, friends visiting from Germany and a couple of days at the beach we had to get as far as we could… Which was quite far but, we didn’t quite get finished. It is really, really, hard work. We did make it harder for ourselves by having a ‘spot’ of plastering done and so we had to redecorate the whole of the ground floor… ūüôā We are so close to the finish line!!!

Summer is a wonderful time to make the most of picnics, barbeques and the long, warm, summer evenings… If you are lucky with the weather, and, well, if not who cares, we all have a vivid imagination don’t we? Seasonal food is wonderful and I like to make the most of it so….

New and exclusive recipes this week on FriFran…

I shared two brand new (sweet) recipes this week, I do like a little bit of sweet but not too much so two sweet recipes are a bit of a bonus!!!

If you are looking for a very classy, grown-up, refined dessert look no further than Lavender Ice Cream. I promise you it is amazing. Lavender Ice Cream is very rich and a little goes a long way, it is wonderful with fruit tarts or lightly roasted fruit. 

It is cocktail season and Pear and Ginger Whizz is a cocktail makers dream. Of course  Pear and Ginger Whizz is more than a mixer, it is wonderful and refreshing with fizzy water and really, really great as a dessert topping with sorbet or ice cream.
