I’m excited to share my failed attempt at Kitchen Mix Up this month. Amanda and Meg changed it up a bit and gave us a “theme”. The theme for the month of February was obvious… Valentine’s Day! Sure, maybe Valentine’s Day has passed and these ideas may not work for you anymore, but you can definitely change these up!
I do have some other ideas for Valentine’s inspired treats since this one didn’t quite work out in my favor. If an egg in a basket isn’t your speed (i.e. You lack talent just like I do) then try these simpler options for Valentine’s Day – Most people can bake cookies and make pancakes, just throw in some food coloring and you’re good to go!
These were just regular pancakes that I made. I’m pretty sure I bought the shake & pour mix that is super easy. You literally pour some water in the bottle, shake it up, and pour the pancake mix onto the griddle. I added some pink food coloring though and voila!
Don’t forget, you can also use green food coloring for St. Patrick’s Day and Red/White/Blue for July 4th. I love using food coloring in simple recipes because you can brighten up any dish!
All the pink colored food was how I celebrated Valentine’s Day last year and maybe this years epic failure was a sign that I should stick to what I know haha! I’m kidding though – I think it’s great to step outside of your comfort zone to try something new, but I’m not sure “egg in a basket” will be worth a second try in my book.
