Valentines wins & losses

Loss: pink heart shaped pancakes.  Whatever.  At least the kids did notice that they were pink and they tasted good.


Win: heart shaped pizzas.  I was running late and Russ put the sauce & cheese on, but I made the heart crusts.


Loss: accidentally turning the kitchen-aid on too high just after putting the flour in for valentine’s day snickerdoodles.


Win: modeling flour and flowers which Russ brought me along with chocolates.  He’s a keeper!



  1. Okay, if you want to make some seriously awesome shaped pancakes, ask for one of those infant medicine droppers next time you are in the pharmacy. Then, just outline the shape you are making using that, let it cook for a minute or so, then fill in the rest of the shape and cook as normal... My kids think I'm a genius:). I have wondered, however if I could get my hands on one of those ketchup dispensers restaurants use...

  2. Another pancake trick is to use a heart-shaped metal cookie cutter - one of my friends told me that one!
