What do you think of when you think of fall? Beautiful orange and red leaves, pumpkins, sweaters, and Halloween? Personally, I can't think of fall without thinking about warm, delicious apple recipes. There is nothing like taking a trip to an apple orchard to pick your own apples for homemade treats the whole family will enjoy. With so many apple recipes out there, it can be hard to decide which ones to make. Never fear: I have searched out and found seven of the best apple recipes. The only work you have to do now is the cooking!

A Fourth of July barbecue is the perfect time to serve your friends some unique dishes. Instead of the usual fare, surprise them with a selection of foods made with edible flowers! Take a look at some recipes that will bring a dash of color and fragrance to your refreshment table.

Desserts

Give your party guests a thrill by putting a new twist on traditional favorites. Serve scoops of lavender ice cream in a collection of frosted bowls. No Fourth of July celebration is complete without this delicious treat. I like to watch the surprised faces of my guests as I serve them this fragrant alternative to the old standbys! Fresh mint brownies are also a fun option for all of the chocolate-lovers at your party.

Turning Flower Into Tea

Have you ever watched a butterfly or hummingbird sip nectar from a flower? You, too, can enjoy sipping flower juice by drinking floral teas. Classic black, green, and white teas are made from the leaves of the tea plant Camellia sinensis and contain caffeine. Herbal teas or tisanes, on the other hand, are made from a wide variety of plant materials and spices and do not contain caffeine or actual tea leaves from the tea plant. In addition to having unique flavors, herbal teas are often packed with health benefits. Many herb leaves are commonly used to make popular teas, but today, I would like to present some of the most popular teas made from flowers.

Delicious Edible Flower Treats You Can Make At Home

The next time you stop and smell the flowers, you may want to taste one too after you read about these edible beauties. You probably already knew that flowers are used to make teas, but believe it or not, flowers can also be eaten. The edible nature of flowers has been known for a long time. In Medieval Europe, edible flowers were often used in meals. Today, edible flowers are becoming popular once again by upscale restaurants and caterers; however, you don't have to eat out to try edible flowers. Many of these tasty treats can be found on your lawn or in your garden. I think flowers add an element of surprise and a great deal of beauty to everyday fare.
