Waffle Pizza Dippers

These are easy and fast and the kids will love them!

7 oz or (1 3/4 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup (1 oz) shredded Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp dried basil leaves (I actually left these out)

1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves {left these out too =)}

2 cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce

Sliced Pepperoni

*Heat waffle maker with 8 inch square cooking surface. Begin heating pizza sauce in a seperate pan on low heat, stirring occasionly, until warm. Place in small serving bowl and set aside for dipping.

*Mix the cheeses, basil and oregano together in a bowl. Unroll the crescent rolls leaving each of the 2 triangles together forming a rectangle. Press the perforations to seal. Place 1 dough rectangle on bottom surface of heated waffle maker, being careful not to open perforations. Quickly sprinkle 1 cup cheese mixture evenly on top of dough. Add pepperoni as desired. Top with another dough rectangle and close waffle maker. Bake 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping. Yum!

The Day Of......

has come and gone!
I hope everybody shared it with their loved ones and had a great day!
I'm finally sharing my version of the "52 reason why I love you" using playing cards. I saw a few versions of this in a couple different places and never saved the link...sorry =(
But I loved this idea and here is how my version turned out.
Instead, I did 35 reasons why I love you + 17 little promises = 52 for a Happy Valentines Day!

I thought it could also work good for an Anniversary!
This is another great idea from Tatertots and Jello to use with playing cards. Something you can create for the kids as well. I love this site, check it out!
Happy Crafting!!

Valentine Cookie Suckers & Cookie Sucker Bouquet

These Cookie Suckers are so fun and pretty simple! What you need:
*Pre-packaged Sugar Cookie dough
*Sprinkles/Candy Pieces
*Popcicle Sticks
*Curly Ribbon/Tags
*plastic wrap or treat bags
Roll Cookie Dough into about a 1 1/2 inch ball, stick popcicle stick in about 1/2 way. Put on sprayed cookie sheet overlapping popcicle sticks as neccesary. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool on sheet for about 2 minutes and then cool completely on cookie rack for about 10 minutes. Frost and add sprinkles and candy pieces. You can eat them right then (Yum!) or wait for frosting to dry before you put in plastic wrap or bag. Tie with curly ribbon, add a Valentine tag if desired. Now you have a cute cookie Valentine Sucker.
Gather them in a vase or pot to make a Cookie Bouquet!
This is a cute way to pass out to a class or give to Grandma and Grandpa, neighbor or any other special someone. I think it would be cute to make smaller pots for your visiting teaching ladies.
All I did was get one of those Clay pots for 1.00 at Walmart. There are smaller and bigger sizes. Paint with Craft paint and Tie a Bow. I put in some green floral foam to stick my suckers into. You can then add some basket filler. It would be really cute to add Vinyl lettering on your pot saying, "I pick you Valentine," or something cute like that.

School Valentines- Melted Heart Crayons

This is a fun Project to do with your kids.
Everytime our crayons start to get old and broken we Recycle them. Since it's close to Valentines Day we decided to make hearts! Sooo Cute! All you need:
*Heart-shaped metal (or silicone) cookie or muffin tin.
(My hearts are about 1 1/2 inches across in size)
*Broken up Crayons (soak crayons in water to easily remove the paper)
{Most of our crayons we just break in half and they fit into the mold nicely, but you can use smaller pieces if you want it real colorful.}
If you are using a metal mold you may want to spray with cooking spray before you put the crayon pieces in.
What to do: Preheat oven to 250. Fill up mold with crayon pieces. Put on a cookie sheet and Bake about 15 minutes or until crayons are completely melted. Let cool completely and remove from mold. Smooth any rough edges by rubbing them on a piece of scrap paper.
And there you have it....Cute Recycled Crayons read to use. Try out many different shapes or simply use a small muffin tin for circles.
You can make some simple School Valentines, just stick it to cardstock paper with 2-sided sticky Foam pieces. Another fun saying is "You color my world Valentine!"
