friends, i am so excited to introduce you to christina of sweet lavender bake shoppe. we met in blogland a few months ago and i'm so glad we did. she has a beautiful blog full of life and drool-worthy recipes. i'll be honest, i get a little intimidated by cooking/baking (pretty sure i'm martha stewart's worst nightmare) but christina makes it look so easy. need proof? check out this pear and almond cream pie. it looks totes delish and completely doable!! so maybe try it out after you take some time to learn more about this sweet lady's story and her baking dreams.
