Including a floral touch in your creations is an effortless way to add that ‘wow’ factor–especially when entertaining. Pansies in particular are a gorgeous way to make any dish look amazing–plus they add a unique flavor and spice.

Just make sure to only eat flowers that are grown organically, without chemical pesticides!

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
