Have you been eating your flowers? There's a special joy that only comes after popping a beautiful bloom into your mouth and discovering that the flavor is just as exquisite as it's colorful beauty. If you've never tried them, never fear! After last week's love for my squash blossom Instagram post, I decided to induct as many of you as would like to join me to the joys of being a "floravore" with this simple recipe.
What is the month of December without Eggnog?
Eggnog is one of those foods I would indulge in year round if possible. When the holidays roll around and that little creamy yellow carton of joy shows up in the supermarket once again, I can't help but feel conflicted emotions. One is pure joy accompanied by a gluttonous urge to grab the carton and guzzle it right there in the shop. The other is sadness and dismay when remember how seriously unhealthy it is for you. I actually look at the ingredients every year. Yes, I've read them many times before and I'm well aware of what I'll find before I look, but for whatever reason I'm eternally hopefully that someone has granted my wish of an eggnog that I could sip on more than once or twice in the month of December without feeling like I'm doing myself a serious disservice.
