    “…where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week.”

    I’m generally good with that, but I’m always open to suggestions!

    Oh wait, you mean food? Well, the above still applies. I am so gonna try a few of these. The lavender Madelines in particular look heavenly.

    I’d also love to make the flower teacup and tea that Willy Wonka had, where you drink the tea, then eat the teacup.

    I had no idea you could eat this many types of flowers. They make everything look so beautiful and fancy, like even your the crepe batter isn’t good, the fact that it has PANSIES in it makes it A+ Breakfast In Bed food.
