A Valentines Love Story

The title may be a tad misleading but it got you here right?  Naturally with Valentines around the corner our lives have all been saturated with (or in my case commercials that contain) cards, flowers, heart shaped candy, pink, red, love, …well you get the point.  I’m not a hater of the holiday but I honestly think it’s sort of ridiculous.

But then I caught a snippit of a morning news show that said something so wonderful I thought I heard it wrong.  So I made a beeline to google and found this article confirming the joyous news!  Chocolate is better for you than fruit!!!

Holy crap –  I am the healthiest person alive!!

And if this wasn’t good enough news, I read that white chocolate isn’t REALLY chocolate.  Thus confirming what I’ve always suspected.  Of course my suspicions were based  on the fact that “white chocolate” is disgusting and vile but now I have scientific confirmation that it’s an impostor to the chocolate family.

This is shaping up to be quite the Valentine’s Day.

Rice Krispy Hearts

I saw this and decided it looked easy enough that even I could do it.  For a first attempt they aren’t too bad, but there are some things I’ll do differently the next time I make them that I think will make the process easier.  But the 8 year olds these are for will love them…they’d better (shakes fist)!

As morbid as this may sound, a few weeks ago I told my mom that there were three things I wanted to learn from her before she died. She is nowhere near death as far as I can tell but to play it safe I really want to learn these things sooner rather than later. They are: 1. Learning her sugar cookie receipe 2. Learning her divinity receipe 3. Learning her fudge receipe. Today I successfully acheived goal number three after only two attempts. As you can see from my flickr photos, attempt number one looks like dirt and tasted like old chocolate – not good! However, attempt number two worked out fantastically!! Don’t mess with me…I’m on a baking roll!!!
