Bakin and Makin...

We have been baking and eating a lot of sweets in recent days...and hearts have certainly been an inspiration in honor of Valentine's Day!

:: These cookies were a hit and so easy to make :)
(I just used a Devils Food cake mix)

:: Banana Bread Hearts

:: Herz Torte (from the bakery)
:: and yesterday we made Grandma Pearl's "Self-filled Cupcakes"

Here is the recipe...

Self-Filled Cupcakes

1 package of chocolate cake mix
1 8 oz. container of cream cheese
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix cake mix according to pkg. directions. Fill paper cups in muffin tins 2/3rds full.
Cream together cream cheese, sugar, and egg.  Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips.  now drop a rounded tsp. of cream cheese mixture in each cupcake.  Bake as pkg directs. (about 15 minutes)

We had a lovely Valentine's Day, sharing dinner with some friends.  Then the kiddos started getting all crafty... making heart animals and people (thanks for teaching them Sarah Clark!)

and then they took to making things with duct tape that Memoo sent them...
Did you know you could Youtube how to make a pencil case? (too funny)

Here is Abby's pencil case

  And Levi made an i-pod touch case

Hope you all loved on someone yesterday :)
