~My Favorite Things-Roses & Desserts~

Drying roses is one of my favorite things to do.
I can never have enough.

I should be decorating for Christmas.
But, there's always tomorrow.
And the next day.
For the holiday weekend we made popovers.
A little something light for breakfast.
Oh yes, the desserts.
~Pumpkin Mousse~
Spiced pumpkin mousse with a dollop of whipped cream
and a pastry leaf.
 Linzer Cookies
with Raspberry Jam.
Some delicious desserts
 to end the holiday weekend!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!


  1. My stomach is now growling for those desserts! I still have a couple of roses that my husband gave me about 20 years ago in a Valentines bouquet. Happy memories and yes, with those desserts, the decorating can wait. Have a wonderful week x

  2. Oooh, these are all of my favorite things too!... although I love decorating for Autumn... and now Christmas... I was just thinking this morning how much I miss my roses in my garden!... I too love to dry as many as I can and have them everywhere!... we are predicted to get huge amounts of snow this week along with bitter cold temps... I think I will gather the few remaining ones, that are almost freeze~dried out there!... your desserts all look delish!... xoxo Julie Marie

  3. Yum, yum, yum! These all look delicious! What a way to end this holiday weekend.


  4. Your popovers are popping off my screen:-)
    Which recipe did you use..they look fabulous:-)
    And your linzers almost look Canadian:-) -

  5. Your roses are gorgeous and your popovers are killing me. I had some in to bake last week and ran outside to get the dogs...oopsie. Too long in the oven. (And a 24 yr. old listening to the timer beep while letting them burn) Grrrr. Oh well, another day. Yours look delicious!

  6. oh my, look at the popovers! everything looks delicious, jody! my kroger has been selling (getting old) roses at 99 cents and 1.99 and i've been grabbing them up to dry. a girl can never have too many roses:)

  7. Love dried roses! I have some myself. The color is great!

  8. OMG I hardly had any dessert this weekend only a small piece of pumpkin pie, because we went out for dinner. Yours looks wonderful - may I please have one of each.
