Valentine Heart Pancakes – Using DIY Tinfoil Shapes (A Tutorial!)

I wanted to make something sweet for my family this Valentine’s Day – and I wanted that sweet thing to be chocolate chip pancakes before school.  But not just ANY chocolate chip pancakes: I wanted to make them in the shape of hearts.  Just one problem…. I don’t have any heart-shaped pancake molds or even metal cookie cutters to use.   I did have some plastic heart cookie cutters though, and I figured I could somehow MacGyver heart molds out of tin foil.   I set out to experiment and did a trial run with my all-too-willing preschooler.  Here’s how to make them!

Tutorial: Heart Pancake Molds from Tinfoil

1) Start with a plastic heart-shaped cookie cutter – even if you just have one, you can make several molds.  Do these a few days ahead, and you’ll be ready to cook up some love come Valentine’s morning!

Low Carb Diet Meals: One Dish Chicken & Veggie Recipe

If you are looking for low carb diet meals, here is a super simple one dish chicken and veggie recipe. I had seen a similar recipe circulating online, however it called for red potatoes, green beans and one stick of butter. I thought surely I can make a low carb version, by substituting other veggies in place of the red potatoes and using olive oil instead of a stick of butter. It was so easy to make, and clean up was a breeze. The chicken was very tender and juicy and the veggies were seasoned beautifully. Of course, you could substitute your family’s favorite veggies and tweak the seasoning to best suit your taste. [Read more...]
