  1. With this recipe I preapred 8 mini portions.<br/>The recipe was easy to follow and the taste fancy. I used dried lavender as now is January, but next time I will use fresh one if possible.<br/>I love cooking with flowers and as I saw this recipe I had to try it. A winner
  2. What a great treat! To make this more diabetic friendly, I used Splenda in the custard, and skipped the sugar topping in the serving for the diabetic, and topped it with sugar-free Cool Whip. The other servings, I did the sugar topping and it was a hit. A nice little "crunch" on the soft custard. The lavender and ginger are subtle, but delicious! Thanks for this keeper.


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
