Guest Post: Blog Redhead's Tasty Tuesday

Hello, dear readers of Eat.Love.&Style! I’m Jamie of blogRedhead (link:; when Jackie asked me to guest blog for her I jumped at the occasion because she runs a staggering blog! In Jackie’s blog, she features delicious food, promotes and shares stories of love, and shows off her impeccable style. I wanted to do her blog justice and give you all a fun and pretty recipe I’ve been desperately wanting to try: Lavender Lemonade! I’m not much of a cook, well if truth be told, I don’t ever cook so the directions and ingredients to this recipe is an easy and fast one:

source- oprahinnbrooklyn

Servings: Makes about 16 servings

3 cups sugar
7 sprigs lavender (stems and buds), plus additional for garnish*
2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 12 lemons)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 5 limes)

In a large saucepan, bring one gallon of water and the sugar to a boil. Remove from heat; add 7 lavender sprigs and lemon and lime juices. Cool to room temperature, strain, and chill. Serve on ice, with additional lavender for garnish.

* If unavailable, substitute fresh basil or lemon thyme.

Please send us both messages once you’ve tried this! Or if you have already tried this, message us anyway and let us in on your thoughts! :) In addition to this recipe, I wanted to call attention to mine and Jackie’s love for fashion/thrifting. I wrote a short post on the fundamentals of thrift shopping here (link: I’ve been collecting and thrifting since I was 15 years old and I learned the hard way how to thrift wisely.

To Jackie’s sweet and dyed-in-the-wool readers, I hope I get to know you all, too but most importantly, I hope you enjoyed this post. Aren’t we all jealous we’re not on vacation with her too?

xo, jamie
