I must say I love Valentine’s Day – you must have already guesses by my daily “Love is in the Air” Valentine’s themed blog posts.
We have been busy getting ready for Valentine’s with inexpensive cards and baking.
You can see our Homemade Valentine’s Cards made with petals from old flowers.
I’m sure there will be lots of flowers and roses lying around in the next few days, so you can use them up instead of throwing them away.
You will have lots of fun and do some recycling at the same time! Little man had a great time making the cards. You could perhaps use Valentine’s Day flowers to make Mother’s Day cards?
I think that’s what I would be doing with the flowers I get today from hubby. Valentine’s Day is all about making your other half feel special and express your love.
What a better way to show them you care, than by baking heart-shaped goodies?
We had a go at making flapjacks, cookies and pancakes. Not sure which one is my favourite as they all tasted so lovely!
We have been making some Heart Shaped Flapjacks using my Fruity Flapjack Bites Recipe. It is really easy to make, it only takes a few minutes to bake and the little edible hearts are lovely!
I’m sure your Valentine will love it! You could have the flapjacks hearts after dinner tonight while snuggling on the sofa and watching a movie.
If you prefer cookies, we have also been making Heart Shaped Biscuits decorated with red smarties.
Little man had a great time making them, decorating and eating of course.
Daddy really liked the final result and he was very impressed. I’m sure your Valentine would also appreciate the effort!
As Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day fall on the same week this year, what a better idea than mixing the both occasions and creating your own Heart Pancake?
We used my Easy Pancake Recipe with added red food colouring to create pink pancakes.
I’m still not too sure why it came out pink and not red, but they turned out fine and they were just as tasty.
We made a Heart Shaped Raspberry Pancake Stack and they were lovely.
You could have the fresh raspberries around the pancakes or on top of them.
You could serve the Pancake Stack after your Valentine’s dinner tonight as a light and fruity dessert.
It is very tasty on its own, you could add raspberry jam on each layer for extra flavour.
The Raspberry Pancake Stack would taste lovely with vanilla ice cream or raspberry sorbet on the side.
What are you baking for your Valentine? I would love to hear!
Whatever you are up to tonight, hope you have a wonderful time!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
