But first, a peek at the pies I made the other day: fresh picked rhubarb and strawberry is my favorite.
Now, going back in time to 2014!
Sammy learns to feed the babies...
My friend Barbara brought over a picnic lunch. Deviled eggs, shredded chicken salad, fried deli chicken, mint chocolate chip ice cream, fresh fruit. YUMMY. And we welcomed her with... kittens. Here she is, helping the little guys feed one of the calicos.
4 cups whole milk
ten stems lavender
1 tsp vanilla
fresh fruit for topping (I was going to use blackberries but my youngest ATE THEM ALL when I wasn't looking)
"Watcha cookin' ??"
Apparently I missed a step with the pictures!
Beat the eggs and the vanilla together in a small bowl. Don't over beat. Add in the cooled milk and then pour over the caramel.
Fill the dish with about an inch of water. Bake about 35 minutes until set. Remove from the water bath and let cool.
The pear was a very pretty color and looked right at home with the caramelized flan.
All in all, I really thought this recipe was a hit.
