Valentine Baking

I love to bake on Valentine's Day and am going to instill that in my children. Actually, I love to cook all the time, but find it especially necessary on holidays (my creative juices flow a little better on those days). So, today we busted out the supplies and got to work. Valentine M&M's on hand made it a little more festive.Sienna enjoyed smearing the melted shortening around in the glass bowl and feeding it to life-long-buddy, Ducky.
You should've heard the gasp of excitement/happiness as I poured the M&M's into the bowl. That was a breath-taking moment apparently. Then of course she needed to have a few, and then a few more, and then....I eventually did stop giving them to her! But I got in trouble for that! "Hey- she hasn't had lunch yet!"Savoring the last few morsels of (allowed) deliciousness
They didn't come out quite as pretty as I'd hoped, but they taste divine! Happy Valentines to all and a happy February!

So fun! I decided to try baking some today too. I tried the homemade somoa recipe I posted on my blog and I'm not sure I'll ever do it again. It's time consuming and a bit frustrating. They better taste AMAZING! :) Sienna is a cutie as always!

That looks so fun! I didn't do any baking today because I did a fondue cheese and chocolate dinner instead. But next year for Valentine's day, I will have to bake for sure.

Sienna's face is so classic as she's watching the M&M's being poured in! You are such a fun mommy.
