Way back in 2008, I teamed up with home style guru Meghan Carter — author of “The Meghan Method” — to show folks how easy it is to create edible arrangements with fruit and vegetables.

These asparagus roses are made by filling a jar with ranch dip, and adding some asparagus skewers topped with carved radishes.
