Cooking with Flowers

  • With produce and flowers in full bloom, afternoon snack time can become a full-blown activity! The boys and I have been attending a cute little weekly hands-on gardening class. One week, we had so much fun making this fresh garden dip (and tasting along the way too), that I thought I’d replicate it again at home. Nasturtium flowers are slightly sweet with a strong peppery back note that pair really nicely with tart basil and salty cream cheese. The boys gladly participated in ripping slash destroying the ingredients into teeny tiny pieces!


  • Of course, we needed something a little sweet to wash it all down — lavender mint lemonade. It’s always been a favorite.
