Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine’s Day!

I’m excited to share this sweet Valentine’s Day recipe with you!  These pink heart-shaped pancakes are easy to make and taste sooo delicious!!  I seriously ate two while taking these pictures for the blog.  Besides being pink and heart-shaped, these pancakes are also diary-free.  I used Earth Balance’s buttery spread (soy-free) and some Vermont maple syrup (yum!) to top these babies off but feel free to use your own toppings.  This pancake recipe is quick to come together, so whipping up a batch Wednesday morning wouldn’t be much of a worry.  Scroll down for the recipe!

Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine's Day!

Makes 6 – 8 pancakes – recipe can be doubled and it also depends on the size of your heart

Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine's Day!

So I wanted to take a minute to talk about this heart shaped thingy that I’m not really sure what to call it.  Someone gifted me two of these things, years ago and I never bothered to give them a try until now.  They are pretty awesome and designed to lay flat on a griddle or frying pan.  It took me a few attempts at getting the hearts to come out perfect but after that it was smooth sailing.

Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine's Day!

cooking a pink pancake in action!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 2 – 3 drops of red food coloring
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extra
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup water – may need to add more as you go along

The underside of the pancakes is pinker since it’s the side that spent less time on the griddle

Recipe:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Go slow with the food coloring drops.
  3. Cook on medium-low heat.  Place heart on griddle with a few drops of olive oil before adding a thin layer of pancake mix.
  4. Once bubbles stop bubbling on pancake, you are clear to flip.  Let cook for an additional minute.
  5. Add toppings and enjoy!

Pink Beach Cottage Tour

Because what girl doesn’t want to live in a tiny pink cottage on a beach in the Bahamas?!  This place is so adorable.  I’ve long advocated my love of tiny homes and while I wouldn’t call this “tiny” it does have a small home feel.  There’s a coziness here that’s created with a variety of textures (lots of wicker!) and beachy shades of aquas and blues.  Scroll down to take the tour!

Raspberry Summer Sangria Recipe

I’ve been wanting to share this sangria recipe with you for awhile but couldn’t seem to find the time to get these pictures taken!  This raspberry Summer sangria recipe is so delicious!!  The raspberries act as little tasty pops of deliciousness in your mouth as you sip this sangria.  Also I love that this cocktail is completely pink and the perfect sangria to mix up for a night with the girls.  Not to mention that because this is a white wine sangria, just like my Grapefruit Sangria Recipe, you don’t have to worry about making it 24 hours in advance.  Take a peek at the recipe below.

Raspberry Summer Sangria Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 4 cups pink lemonade
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 bottle of a dry white wine – chilled

Raspberry Summer Sangria Recipe

*I chilled my wine before hand and you can also add ice to this as well

Serves 5 – 6

Valentine’s Day Nail Art

For Valentine’s Day this year I’m all about sparkly nail art.  The more sparkle the better!  I’m also still loving that rose gold nail polish trend from last year.  It seems so fitting for a romantic holiday like Valentine’s Day.  Take a peek and grab some inspiration:
