A Different Kind of Kitchen Garden

A table of homemade treats is often a lovely sight to behold, but there's always room to turn up the cute dial. We got extra-creative with this bunch (or should we say bouquet?) of recipes, each of which tastes incredible but also mimics a beautiful bloom. They turn any spring get-together into an instant "garden party" and will delight your friends and family.

Zucchini Rose Tartlets

Rolled up with puff pastry, thin slices of summer squash turn into a (nearly) effortless and elegant rose. These make a nice springtime lunch when paired with a leafy salad dressed with herbed vinaigrette.

Candied-Carrot Rose Tart

A beautiful and surprising way to use carrots, this tart is reminiscent of baklava with its dried fruit and nut filling, and crisp, buttery crust. Don't fret if your carrot twirls aren't perfect — the rustic look is part of the appeal.

Avocado Rose Eggs Benedict

Next time to you start to sloppily mash an avocado on some toast, stop and make this prettier version instead. This eye-catching take on the trendy breakfast is easier than you think to create (the flat side of a knife helps you get the job done). Dress things up with a quick blender hollandaise, colorful radishes and a sprinkling of sea salt.

Pineapple Flower Pina Coladas

These pineapple flowers will impress everyone — and they couldn't be easier to make ahead. You simply oven-dry thin slices in a muffin tin and "petals" appear as the edges curl. A whole pineapple will yield more flowers than you'll need for these cocktails, so use them as cake toppers or snacks.
