What Are Your Favorite Friends Up To This Week?

Hello June

Happy June, dear friends, and thanks for your patience with the posting of the first Friendship Friday party of the month! I intended to have this live yesterday (Thursday is my usual posting day) but I ended up spending the day in workshops that went much longer than scheduled and ended up totally wiped!

So, I decided I would post Friday morning, only to discover myself totally wiped out after rising super early to attend several East coast friendly but West coast adverse Zoom calls! Since health is my #1 priority right now, I figured I would take a quick nap – only to crash for 3 hours!

Cooking With Flowers by Miche Bacher

Several years ago, I reviewed a very cool book called Cooking With Flowers by Miche Bacher. This book, which is filled with stunning photos of flower-infused food recipes throughout, identifies over 17 categories of flowers that we can incorporate into our meals, along with 100 artistic recipes we can make!

So, you may be wondering, why am I mentioning this book to you now?

Marigold Rose Petal Salad

Well, at our last Friendship Friday party, Michele from Coastal Bohemian shared a stunning looking and delicious example of what you can make using flowers with her Marigold Rose Petal Fennel Frond Salad with Red Lentils and Rose’ Rose Dressing!

Garden Gatherings

What’s particularly special about Michele’s salad is that she gathered most of the ingredients from her own garden!

Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens

Speaking of gardens, Jennifer from Curated by Jennifer recently toured the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden and her photos are not to be missed! The gardens currently feature the stunning glass artwork of the Dale Chihuly, strategically placed throughout the gardens so it fits in the environment and surroundings.

Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is always a joy! Be sure to visit Michele and Jennifer this week, explore their blogs, leave them some comment love, and congratulate them for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!

      Thank you Regina – lots going on but my morning has started out pretty peacefully today and I am feeling much more rested!

    Oh yes, those time zone spanning Zoom calls are rough! I have a weekly morning call with my Israeli counterparts. It’s always weird that they are ending their day when I’m only starting mine.

    How amazing that Michele cooks with flowers like that. So beautiful!

    And we LOVE Chihuly. We’ve been to the museum in Seattle, but our favorite exhibition featuring his art is probably the one that was at the New York Botanical Garden. I love Jennifer’s photos of the glass in the midst of the desert. Amazing.

    Hugs to you, Roy, and Magellan, Ramona. We hope you are doing well. 🙂

  7. Hello and thanks. Linking to my reviews of books with info we all need eventually, hopefully later than sooner.,

  8. Thanks for the the always open door!

  9. That salad looks yummy. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  10. Thanks so much for hosting. I shared from both my blogs. Hope your weekend was great and your week is starting fabulous.

    I have seen many decorated cakes and I’ve seen flowers used as a garnish, but I have never seen such a beautiful cake, wow!
    Thank you for hosting, wishing you a great week!

  15. Thank you for the lovely feature. I’m slowly back to posting again and just saw this comment. We got a puppy right after I posted that and well, it’s like having a new born.
