Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is February 14th - or more commonly known as Valentine's Day!

I don't have one specific Valentine this year, but that didn't stop me from making things and spoiling the people I really care about!

To start off - I sent my wonderful nephew, Gavin, a few little gifts and this card! I love you little man. xoxo

And this weekend I made a few edible goodies to share!

A few weeks ago I purchased this cute heart shaped pasta from Whole Foods and decided I'd make a pasta salad with it.

The hearts boiling.

Cooked and cooling.

With all the veggie friends!

Then Robin made heart shaped cookie pops and I assisted. I don't think I was much help though...

Anyway, here's one I made!

And I didn't stop there...

I made cake balls!!! 

Alison helped me finish them on Sunday and I paid her in cake balls. It was a win win situation.

I've made them before, so I knew what I was getting into. But I also knew how delicious they are when you're all done. Heck they're delicious at any step along the way!

From past experience I knew the recipe made quite a few cake balls. I planned on bringing in a lot to give to my co-workers, so I decided I'd make TWO kinds!

Red Velvet and Funfetti!

 The candy coating.

70 Funfetti Cake Balls!

And 150+ of both flavors.


All wrapped up to give away.

Alison and I couldn't stop with cookie pops and cake balls. Oh no, we went further! We dipped strawberries and pretzels in the leftover cake ball coating. Yum!

I hope you all had a wonderful day spent with those you love.
