Flower On The Rocks.......Yes Please

OK so after a recent visit with my physician, I've been told that my blood pressure is a little bit elevated than I, she would like. And for me, taking any kind of pills is NOT a first option, lol, unless its pain medz. And the pain has to be pretty severe. So she recommended I try this DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) healthy eating plan. Notice how I didn't say the dreaded word "diet" lol. That's because I dont beleive in diets. Healthy eating plan sounds wayyyy better to me. And since I'm not trying to take any blood pressure pills, she didnt have to twist my arm to give this a try. Personally I can sum this eating plan up as fruits, fruits, fruits....veggie, veggie, veggie....grains, grains, grains :D.

So this eating plan has me on the hunt for some great recipes that are not boring and that me and my family will love. And I came across this blog, Divas Can Cook, owned by the lovely Monique. Lets just say that she has me falling in love with my kitchen all over again. One of her creations I came across is this post for Roses In Ice. What else can you say about it.  It looks absolutely beautiful.

This is a must have for just about ANYTHING. So simple, yet so elegant. Perfect for any intimate settings bridal/baby showers, girls night out at your place, or if you're like me any day of the week with a glass or 2 of Moscato, hellooooo : ). You can consider this a "conversation" piece or an ice-breaker, ha. But have fun with it.

Until next time, stay safe....stay blessed.

  1. so do you think this? it is pretty - and take care of your health are the only one that can do this - and I sm sure your family needs you around :) have a great weekend as well.

  2. I meant *drink* do you DRINK this :)

  3. It's mainly for decorative purposes but you still have to make sure the flower is organice. No pesticides. or you can use fruits, berries, pretty much anything edible. Here is an exceprt from her posts....Thanks for the well wishes luv!!

    "When making these floral ice cubes be sure to use only organic, edible flowers. Although your guest probably won’t be munching on the flowers (it’s mainly for show) you still want to make sure they are safe. The last thing you want to do is poison your guest or make pesticide-laced ice cubes.

    You can also use berries, herbs, or fruits. I love how slices of lemon, lime and oranges look suspened in ice. So spa-ish! Strawberries and mint leaves also looks great"
