After discovering Hershey's Spreads for the first time, I've found dozens of ways to incorporate these rich, chocolate flavored spreads into every day snacks and desserts.

Heart Shaped Rice Krispies Treats Pops for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Rice Krispies Treat Pops

The kids have now been out of school for a grand total of 25 days ... 1 day longer than winter break was suppose to be. I love the little buggers but if I'm being honest here, I'm going a little nutty having them all home this much. We tried to pass the time with some crafts, plenty of Christmas toys, we even made homemade playdough a few times. But by about day 15, we were all bored out of our minds. And then that nifty snow/wind storm showed up … [Read more...]

I'm kind of in love with Valentine's Day, yes, even the whole commercialized-Hallmark-holiday version. I love the flowers, the candy, the cards, the sappy love story movies, the conversation hearts and the romance, well, maybe just the idea of romance. My husband has yet to discover his hidden talent for romantic gestures. I refuse to give up on the idea of being swept off my feet. Most of all, I love making other people in my life feel loved. … [Read more...]

Pink Valentine's Day Pancakes Recipe

I know it seems a little soon to think about Valentine's Day but I can't help myself. Ever since I had daughters, I just became obsessed with the color pink and Valentine's Day is the one time of the year that you just can't go overboard on pink. Since our kids are still young and responsible babysitters are hard to come by, my husband and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day in the traditional sense. While other couples are out enjoying a quiet … [Read more...]

25 Sweet Treats for Your Valentine

9 Valentine's Day Treats

I should be a little ashamed to admit this but I almost forgot Valentine's Day is tomorrow. My brain has been so busy with daily life that I almost let this holiday slip right by me. But it's not entirely my fault, my husband and I decided it was okay to skip Valentine's Day this year since we're more focused on paying off debt than tossing money into holidays. But that doesn't mean I'll let the day go by without showing him how much he has meant … [Read more...]

Celebrating Valentine's Day doesn't have to require reservations or a fancy restaurant. Some of my best memories celebrating this holiday with my husband all started right at home.
