  1. do you have a refreshing Lavender/Lemonade recipe, and maybe a Lavender shortbread cookie??

  2. Can this punch be made without orange juice? Thank you


  3. On my mums brthday we had a mini party for her I made this fruit punch and in the end had to go to the shop for
    more ingredients it was so yummy thanks for the recipe

    • I’m glad it worked out well for the party, and I guess running out because it’s delicious is a good problem to have. ;D . -Meggan


  4. This recipe is yummy! I made it for my niece’s baby shower, and we did a bottle of vodka on the side for anyone that wanted it (most people added it). I imagine it would be good with a little sweet wine added too, perhaps some moscato. Will make over and over again for future showers!


  5. I was making a smoothie in the 1500 size blender bowl. I used the bowl because of the amount of ingredients. I had frozen fruit, coconut milk, yogurt and ice. I turned it on to the crush setting. It blew a hoke through the bowl, destroying it. Why would that happen?
