What better way to start your Valentine’s Day than with some pink chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream on top and fresh strawberry hearts on the side?
We actually made these Valentine’s Day Pancakes – ON Valentines Day!
Trust me, this is a small miracle, as we tend to PLAN a lot of things that never really make it into reality, or make it on their own unique time table, usually after the holiday, but this time – voila! Pink Pancakes!
I’d be lying if I said that this blog and the need for content and quality pictures wasn’t a HUGE motivator for getting these plans into action. But when you think about it, the whole point of this blog is to celebrate and appreciate more. I actually AM doing that.
I’ve always said that having little ones in your life makes you appreciate and celebrate more. Even if you don’t really feel like coloring eggs or putting up the tree or all the other traditional holiday activities, you will do it for them – to create those lifetime memories and traditions. But what about when there are no little ones in your life? Do you stop celebrating and appreciating?
When a family is at that awkward in-between stage where there are no little ones, sometimes it feels like all holidays are on hold – which to me feels like all of life is on hold. For now, this blog is my baby, and I am devoting myself to giving it everything I can – creating beautiful and memorable holidays and a home full of love.
So, kids or no kids we are going to celebrate like we’re in kindergarten! Starting with PINK PANCAKES!
We bought this festive Valentines pancake mix at Aldi.
It’s pink and has chocolate chips – what more could I possibly ask for?
We tried, oh how we tried, oh so hard to make these pancakes heart shaped.
We used our little silicone heart shape specially designed for this, but it was bent out of shape from being in storage, so the batter was leaking out the edges.
