Valentines Day in Costa Rica

For me holidays are always an excuse
to bake something and
use creativity.

While studying spanish and living
in another country, baking is how I
de-stress.  Its also a little taste of home.

Sugar cookies...what's not to LOVE!

In the morning I attempted to make heart shaped pancakes
for my kiddos, before we headed off to school.

And Cody needed cupcakes for a fiesta in 2nd Grade,
so he helped bake them and then I decorated them with
pink and he wasn't super impressed with the color,
but enjoyed them anyway.

For the fiesta in 5th grade,
chocolate covered marshmallows
were the sweet things that
tickled their taste buds.

And the Mom's
coffee and chocolate
at my house
had chocolate cupcakes with
peanut butter frosting.

Blessings to you all!
