Valentine's Day

Sorry this is up after Valentine's day but its been that kind of week. So many fun parties for the kids though so I had to do at least a party wrap up.

Valentine's Day was yesterday but we've been adding love to our food all month it seems. Here's some of the highlights from this month. I wanted to have this up earlier but it has been that kind of week :)

Breakfasts

 Love bug chocolate chip pancakes

 Mickey Mouse pancakes

Mommy loves you pancakes - no I don't look like that just being silly
Scrambled egg heart
Heart omelets and bacon roses

 Directions :
  • Roll bacon
  • Secure with toothpick
  • Place on a wire rack over a pan ( mine fits perfectly on an 8" square cake pan)
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 min or until browned, turning a few times
  • Once cooled a bit you can remove the toothpick and add stems
  • My stems are 1/2 of a green pipe cleaner, twist a leaf.

Party Foods

Little Smokie hearts and veggie tray


Directions :
  •  Cut smokie diagonally in the middle, turn to form a heart
  • Wrap with crescent roll dough
  • Bake at 375 for 15 min or until golden. I use Pillsbury dough. 
  • Heart foil pan and veggies (carrots, cauliflower and broccoli) in the center

Strawberry Pie Pops

 Directions :
  • Pillsbury pie crust cut with heart cookie cutter
  • 2 egg whites whipped for wash
  • Brush one heart with egg white
  • Add a dollop (yep very technical I know) of pie filling I used strawberry
  • (Optional) Insert stick to the middle, wrap the exposed stick with foil so it won't burn
  • Add second heart
  • Seal all the way around by pressing a fork around the edges
  • Brush top with egg white  - You can leave it plain like these or decorate with sprinkles
  • Bake on parchment paper at 375 for 15-17 min
  • Let cool a few minutes before gently moving to a wire rack to cool completely
  • I winged it but here's directions from Pillsbury I just found
