Friday Frazzle: Valentine’s Sweet (& Savory) Treats

Today’s Frazzle contains links to other blogs or recipe sites.  I receive NO compensation from these links.  Just wanted to share!

Hi guys! It’s another Friday Frazzle and in the spirit of the Valentine’s season, I thought I would share today’s sweet frazzle with you!  Those who know me know I love anything that lets me shower love on my babies, so it should come as no surprise that I really enjoy Valentine’s Day.  While I know the commercial industry really packs on the gift giving for couples, I’m really big on making sure the family members feel super special (though I try to do this every day).  Since Valentine’s Day is a great time to enjoy sweets in all their greatness, I decided to share a few of my favorites with you.

  • StrawberrySprinkle Funfetti Pancakes via Better Baking Bible.com.  So, I love this idea and its simple execution. BUT I have to be honest.  On a week day, I just don’t have the time to make pancakes from scratch and chase after the 3 year old, 11 year old, and 5 month old.  So, I shortcut and use boxed pancake mix (Aunt Jemima’s is my go-to) and continue the sprinkles and strawberries as directed.  The kids don’t know the difference and enjoy the look. Though her comments say you can make the batter overnight.  I haven’t tried that yet, but I may do so this year and will link it to a Valentine’s recap and let you know how it goes if I do!
  • StrawberrySweethearts Cocoa via Two Peas & Their Pod.  This is a Honeybee loved.  I typically make a homemade Valentine’s dinner for the family.  This will be the kids’ drink.  Strawberry milk is only a once a year thing in our household, if that. They’ll enjoy the new treat.
  • Valentine’s Day To Go Breakfast for Daddy.  Daddy leaves the house before everyone else. I plan to have a little bag of Valentine’s Day goodness ready for him.  He isn’t a fan of the funfetti pancakes, so a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich, fruit (strawberries, blueberries, and pineapples), little container of orange juice, a Valentine’s Day donut, and a Valentine’s Day letter (Every day may not be sunshine, but I’d wouldn’t want to dance in the rain with anyone else. Happy Valentine’s Day.) will be there for him. (Valentine’s Day printables for the table) 4×6.
  • Valentine’s S’mores Cookies via Chelsea’s Messy Apron.  Okay, understand that I LOVE S’mores and the opportunity to present them in cookie form is so absolutely amazing to me!!!  This recipe is pretty straight forward and not hard to follow.  I don’t have a food processor, so I’ve cheated with the graham cracker crumbs already crumbled.  Keebler’s is a favorite.  I wrap them up with wax paper, pink and white, tie them with with red and white twine.  Add an “I Love You” note and drop the whole thing in the lunch box.  Awesome sauce!
