Sweetheart Popcorn

At my niece’s birthday party back in November, I had some zebra popcorn for the first time in years. For those who are unfamiliar with this delectable treat, zebra popcorn is caramel corn drizzled with dark and white chocolate. It is so addictive. Since then, I’ve wanted to make some. When I saw this delicious-looking and easy zebra … Continue reading

TGIF! Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 1/14-1/18

As you’ll see, this week (after Monday) I fully embraced Valentine’s Day in packing lunches and snacks. Jack’s lunch on Monday was two dinosaur PB&Js, clementines, and pears. I’m forgetting what snack was, but apparently it was something not worth photographing. 😉 Tuesday’s snack was apple and blueberry kabobs on Valentine’s Day skewers. Lunch was, … Continue reading

Strawberry Lovebugs

The other night, I was casting about Pinterest for some cute Valentine’s Day treats and came across these adorable strawberry and chocolate ladybugs from Wing It Vegan. Hers are way cuter than mine, but I thought these turned out pretty well, anyway, especially for my first attempt!  I guess I could have waited for the second … Continue reading

Nutella Crescent Cookies

For Valentine’s Day, I decided to whip up these cute little Nutella pie crust crescent cookies — flaky, chocolaty little bites of heaven. I saw the recipe on my friend Marci’s Pinterest board the other day (feel free to follow any or all of my Pinterest boards!), and I knew I would be making these … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day Pizza

This Valentine’s Day pizza is yet another idea from the awesome blog Cute Food For Kids (seriously, she’s so prolific, and everything she makes looks amazing). All you need are ready-to-bake pizza crusts (such as Boboli’s), pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni slices. It also helps to have the ability to strategically place the pepperoni … Continue reading

Chocolate-Dipped Valentine’s Day Cookies

OK, so maybe I cheated a bit with these — they’re actually the same sugar cookie recipe I posted around Christmas, just cut into heart shapes, dipped in chocolate and adorned with sprinkles. But, I figured, why mess with an awesome cookie recipe? (Also, I’m feeling somewhat lazy this week.) These are easy, cute and … Continue reading

Fun, Easy Valentine’s Day Breakfast

I know I just wrote about another egg-themed breakfast idea, but this one’s even easier, and sure to be a hit with the kids (or kids at heart) for Valentine’s Day. It’s a heart-shaped egg-in-frame (or toad-in-the-hole, whatever you want to call it): an egg cooked in a hole cut out of a piece of … Continue reading

Nutella-Filled Strawberries

Whoever invented Nutella was a genius. Seriously, is there a more perfect spread than the combination of creamy chocolate and decadent hazelnut butter? I’m happy to just eat Nutella out of the jar, but it turns out that it’s even more amazing when paired with fresh strawberries. Last week, I saw this pin (what did … Continue reading
