Summer is about endless flowers and herbs, collecting, collaborating, connecting with new and old friends, cruising on bikes, fireworks and PIE !!!!
I adore the summer and what it brings forth for the life in the spirit of the H2a Lifestyle. Riding around on my cruiser gathering herbs and flowers for our products from my yard and Plenty Heirloom Farms , a neighborhood community farm that helps us grow in our downtown neighborhood. I converse with old friends and new acquaintances’ to share ideas and projects that we can have in our community to bring people together and create a sustainable environment.
The Pop-Up Dinners, outdoor movies/live music that happen around town, the collaborative events, and impromptu trips to our cabin in Red Feathers where the best fireworks’ show in Colorado happens are always a treat! Which brings me to one of my favorite go-to treat… my Hand Held Lavender Blueberry PIES! The ingredients typically straight from our Herbal Heart Apothecary inventory! These little delights are always a hit with the child inside of us all.
Here’s the recipe I started with and the additions I have made over the years perfecting the flavor and taste: The secret released!
If you are looking for a fabulous wine pairing with the pies, try L’Ecole a suggestion from Sean Johnson an expert of wine and owner of Mrs. Torrelli’s Wine Flat.
Writing this makes me sing a song in my head with my own version of I love Paris;
I love LOVELAND in the summer when it sizzles !!!!!
