Pomegranate orange peel tea with gingered honey

The timing of this month’s guide couldn’t be more perfect. I’ve been battling a cold since Christmas Day, and although the worst of it is over, I can tell you for a fact that this tea soothes an uneasy stomach and encourages stuffy nasal cavities to loosen up.

Squash blossoms with goat cheese, lavender and honey

I’ve been dying to make squash blossoms, but I’m always too late to the farmer’s market to nab a fresh bunch. Not only did I get a bunch recently — but they were buy-one-get-one! It took a little bit of time to gently work with the blossoms, but it was so worth it. These crispy and creamy little purses are phenomenal.

Roasted berry goat cheese ice pops

Getting to the roasted berry mixture was like a little treasure hunt with these ice pops. I probably ate them faster than necessary just so I could find a blueberry or raspberry in the mix.
