Simple Valentine's Eats

Just a couple of quick, easy ideas to make Valentine's Day extra special:

When making pancakes in the morning, bust out a heart-shaped cookie cutter (be sure it's metal, not plastic). Just set it on your griddle and pour the batter into it. Let it set for a couple of minutes and then pull the cookie cutter up with some tongs (cause it's hot). Voila, heart shaped pancakes. Fun and easy. If you want to go all out, add some red food coloring to your batter - it doesn't get better than red heart pancakes.

For a special treat, make jello gigglers hearts. Just mix 4 packages Jello with 2 1/2 cups boiling water. Still til dissolved and pour into a 9x13 pan. Stick it in a pan for 3 hours. When you're ready, set the pan in a sink of hot water for a second to release the jello from the bottom of the pan. Then use heart cookie cutters to cut heart-shaped jello for a yummy treat. No pics of ours because they're still in the fridge, waiting out the 3 hours before we can cut them. It'll be the perfect snack for tomorrow.
Happy Valentine's Day!

We made heart shaped pancakes yesterday, but what a fun idea to make them PINK. Good idea for next year. Knox blocks also make fun heart shaped "jigglers" - bonus that it's all juice.
