eat your blossoms.


Happy Monday! And happy June! Our weekend went by way too fast (as it always does), and how is it 4 days into June already?? My birthday is in just a few days, and our wedding anniversary is in exactly 2 weeks! We also have a few vacations coming up, and I am just so glad it is finally June. I really love this month.

Speaking of June....I am ringing in the new month over at Emmadime today with a Zucchini Blossom Mini-Quiche recipe for our SIMPLY WHOLESOME series! I had so much fun making these little things, I think because they felt very summer-y to me for some reason. The fresh flowers/blossoms may have had something to do with it. :) I have only made quiche a handful of times before, but after making this recipe I am such a believer. Especially in the [crust-less] muffin-sized kind. Check it out HERE!

  3. That mini copper pan is adorable. We just got some squash blossoms in our farm share, and weren't sure what to do with them, so I was really excited when I saw your post. These look great!
