Lavender-Lemon-Blackberry Tart



Last week I went to a dinner party where I was asked to bring dessert. My friend made a 40 cloves of garlic chicken recipe with chicken from the CSA in town. Other people brought roasted root vegetables and carrots roasted with tons of garlic, butter, and cream. The dessert I brought held bright spring flavors and unusual ingredients that came together as a deliciously refreshing dessert.

I had made a tart like this a few years ago when a friend sent me lavender from the Sequim Lavender Festival. The recipe I used this time is adapted from Tyler Florence's Blueberry-Lemon Tart. Rather than the pint of blueberries, I used blackberries and to the lemon custard I added about two tablespoons of dried lavender. I was afraid I put WAY too much lavender-but it ended up being the perfect amount. I think the tart tasted better the next day after being refridgerated and with all of the flavors fully married. On a hot day, a piece of this tart would make a perfect afternoon treat.

has anyone tried Celebrity Sexy Tooth Whitener'? i just bought 3 tubes for $99. supposed to whiten your enamel 8 shades in 14 days using it 2x day. with the applicator apply a thin layer on each tooth and let it set for 30 min. before drinking/eating. last night was my 1st time. we'll see.
BUT the info doesn't say how long using their whitener lasts before you have to buy another tube!!!

Undoubtedly achieve muscle mass then shed body fat.
My difficulty was I was skinny body fat and made the decision to bulk first but I over did it.
GOMAD + consuming additional food (5000 calories+/day).
My power has enhanced heaps and that i gained a fair bit of
muscle mass but in addition a lot of unwanted fat.

It truly is a truism the esablished purchase is self-supporting and resists change.
TEDx has undoubtedly grow to be mainstream and established.
A model name which has a (properly deserved, I think) reputation of cutting edge intellectual exposure
to protect. The (ironic) reality is the fact that preservation and cutting
edge will often be in tension. Instead of giving somebody the platform to present that/those person's perspective and talk differing with Sheldrake, they chose to take his talk down. The opposite in the concept of a platform for cutting edge ideas, thought, and presentation. Also bad for them. Sad for me and all of the other people who have gained wisdom, understanding, and insights from Tedx talks and those we have encountered on that platform.

Great work on these new articles or blog posts!

I was usually amazed how Bale was capable
to rework himself in that quick quantity of your time.

Muscle Memory is accurate but I guess roids had
been also concerned while you stated: his paycheck trusted it.
