Valentine's Day means heart-shaped food around here. I made heart-shaped cinnamon rolls (didn't turn out quite as well as last year, but still tasty!), heart-shaped pizza, and a heart-shaped jello dessert. Ryan and Riley made waffles on our heart-shaped waffle iron!

Here is a picture of the JELLO DESSERT. Topped with a little whipped cream, it was cute and yummy!

And here's a picture of the personal-size pizzas I made for Ryan and me. I make pizza basically every Saturday night, so if you want the recipe (it's my mom's) I can post it or email it.


  1. p.s. The picture of the pizzas is from before they went into the oven, in case you couldn't tell.

  2. definitely want the recipe. especially if its fairly easy. i've made homemade pizza crust & totally love it. but when i'm in a hurry i use the easy mixes... its never the same though.

    cinnamon rolls sound great & i LOVE jello desserts. this one looks simple AND delish! thanks for sharing.

  3. one package yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
    1 C warm water
    1 t. sugar
    1 t. salt
    2 T. oil
    2 1/2 C flour (I usually do half white, half wheat)

    Combine ingredients in the above order. Let rise while you prepare sauce and other ingredients. Knead a few times till dough is workable. Spread it out on a pizza pan or pizza stone (if stone, sprinkle corn meal on the stone before laying down the dough). Top with sauce, cheese (I like a combo), and any toppings desired. I love putting fresh veggies on mine.

    *Sauce is just a small can of tomato sauce with garlic salt and Italian seasoning to taste (maybe a tsp. of each?)

    Let me know if you actually plan on making this and aren't used to working with yeast/dough...I'll give you some tips.

  4. Oh, bake at 425 for fifteen minutes on regular pan or for sixteen minutes on a pizza stone.

  5. that jello recipe was in the friend this month...mine didn't turn out quite as good as yours! fun that you have this blog with your in-laws!
