Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Do you have plans? I do. But it’s a secret and I don’t want to spoil the surprise yet! The other day we discussed a little bit about how Mr. Yum and I use Valentine’s Day as an excuse. I’ll for showing love year-round, not just one day a year.

So far here in MI our winter has been fairly mild. I have seen a few sprinkles of white stuff, but no real accumulation. Pretty odd for this time of year.

Make your recipe bloom with rose water, flowering herbs, floral teas, dried lavender blossoms or even fresh flowers like nasturtiums, violets, borage, squash, sunflowers or pretty much any blossom in a vegetable garden.
