Today’s Special: All-purpose Flower Recipes

Picture the following scene: Spurred by the lazy river of April rain, happy little pansies have woken up and pushed their petal arms through the warm soil. Walking along, you spot these hue-saturated blooms. Emitting an “Ooh,” you pick one…and eat it.

Wait, eat it? Yep! You read that right. Pansies, along with a handful of other blooms, fall under the category of edible (not to mention pretty!) floral fodder. Though you may not want to chow down on them like you would a bag of pretzels, these edible flowers are a frighteningly wonderful way to make what you bake or cook look incredible!

Above are a few recipes for you to ooh and ahh over. Talk about inspiring, right?

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.
