If Valentine’s Day had a favorite dessert, it would be rose petal pudding

February is the month of love, and I get so excited about it. This is our second Valentine’s Day post-marriage. I feel butterflies thinking about it.


t Last year I woke up to the most beautiful and brightest bunch of roses and breakfast in bed, what more a girl can ask for? We made our favorite meal together and then I surprised him with my secret dessert “rose pudding.” To my delight, he absolutely loved rose pudding. It was so blissfully creamy, fragrant and soft just like love. It was perfect.

t If you want to surprise your significant other this Valentine’s Day and are looking for a recipe, trust me, this is the one. You can make it beforehand so you don’t have to worry on the V-Day. It tastes and smells of roses, exactly what you want on Valentine’s Day.
