rose pink breakfast~

this books was so delicious i am back for seconds, who could resist a rose pink breakfast...

let me grab my bag and apron...

join me while i gather my abundance...

the scent of roses permeates the garden~

looks like i am ready to set the table...

who doesn't love fresh picked roses...

the menu is all set, with just a minor change from muffins to apple roses~

and for some quick and easy dunking, pancake bacon strips...

such a beautiful book...

and another happy ending~

~apple roses~

puff pastry
one apple

slice apples thin from bottom up on a mandoline. place slices in a pan with water and heat to soften, add cinnamon and sugar and let soak until pliable. i used scissors to cut in half.

spread out puff pasty and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. slice into strips. place 4 apple slices per strip and roll, place in greased mini cupcake pans and bake at 350 for 15-20' until puffed and golden. i think for an extra dimension a drizzle of caramel would be delightful~

bacon pancake strips for dunking

pancake batter

learn from my mistakes... i used no fat bisquick pancake mix, the batter was too thin and they did not puff up like a full fat pancake. in other words, they were flimsy... i ended up cutting mine in half. i also didn't have a griddle, which would certainly make much prettier pancakes then being squashed in a frying pan! even though they were not pretty or full bodied, they were delicious and a lovely way to eat pancakes utensil free in the garden!

i hope you enjoyed your invitation to the garden, your invite is still open at...
