When Andy and I heard about how good dandelions were for us, we experimented with the plants from our own back yard. We made a coffee substitute from the roots, cooked the flower buds in butter (they tasted like artichokes!), and ate the leaves in salads. It was a lot of fun and the kids loved picking the flower buds for us to cook for them!

Remember the saying, when life gives you dandelions, make a salad? Well, Ok. I know that's not the saying but next time you look out on your lawn full of Dandelions remember they are little miracles! God made them just for you so go pick 'em and make something delectable! And the best part is, they are FREE! You can't get much better than that!
