rose honey madelines...

a few weeks ago i made a few garden flavored honey's before i left for the beach. they are to sit in a sunny window for 2 weeks, turning the bottles daily. ok, so they didn' get turned, but they did get infused. i ended up scaring myself a wee bit too much about their safety when one of my bottles wasn't sealed properly and evaporated down a couple of inches, but after careful counseling from a professional food family i braved on to enjoy these fabulous rose infused madelines...

it was a cold morning when i made these, much to my surprise i could put them outside to cool quickly, normally this time of year would be well into the 90s.

the kettle is on while i wait on this crisp morning with tea and cookies in hand, of course i am plan to drizzle more rose infused honey into my tea for a perfect moment...

even mr nick takes time to stop and smell the roses with me...

  1. Oh so gorgeous~ I always love when you marry food and flowers! It makes me long for roses to make my own honey and syrup! Always love a curious kitty shot :)

  2. So beautiful. Almost too pretty to eat...almost!
    I'd love to have tea and cookies in such a beautiful spot...especially your warm sunshine. We were down into the 30's last night here in the Hudson River valley.

  3. You take such beautiful pictures. The flowers, the cookies, the honey and the view...Wow!

  4. Oh, the madelines are stunning, and the drizzled rose honey must add an exquisite, sun-blessed taste. Your photos are GORGEOUS, Jain.

  5. Those powdered sugar dusted Madelines are beautiful and oh so tempting. I like to keep plain ones in the freezer and indulge in one for breakfast now and then. '-) The honey infused tea would be the cherry on top!
