Valentine's Day?
 
Anything special planned? any special meals? I am thinking about making DD some heart shaped, pink, pancakes tomorrow with the natural food coloring. Though she does not always eat pancakes! LOL. Maybe some heart shaped carrots in her lunch box too?

oooh those look so cute!


this is what a friend got me at whole foods and it was great and i used it for DD's bday. THe colors are muted, but will color the icing.

Amazon.com: India Tree Natural Decorating Colours: Kitchen & Dining

The ones i get at the local store are a different brand.

Red 100% Natural Food Coloring

i think the first ones are bettr, but 10000x's more $$.

those were the dyes from whole foods. we did Xmas cookies with the other ones and they may have been a little darker. I would experiment!
