On this day..just want to say..Happy Valentine's Day to you..en Amitié..in Friendship.
It's been very cold....we spent part of the weekend at a sleepover with 3 of the alphabet boys and we had a ball.
They were so good..
We played..baked..watched Olympics..did crafts.. laughed..
Max had made us a picture of us skating:) Granted ..we are not Olympians..but he even got my blue skates♥
The weekend of the 22nd..Noah sleeps here:)
It's been even a bit too busy to concentrate on Valentime's Day..This weekend we celebrate our youngest daughter's birthday she will be 37~
But I was in love with Chris' little meringues..so I made soome this week for fun and will take them to my daughter's..
I suggest you go see hers to really fall in love..her photos.. the color of hers..
BUT I did learn the rosettes..bought a 2 D tip..and learned to swirl with color!
All because of Chris' post..
So go see..I think you wil be tempted too..Now tell me does my stripey swirl look rose petal color?
Not at all:(
I expected a soft pink like the Wilton lid showed..:(
And I have been wanting to try making Coeurs à la Crème..so in Jan or Dec even.. I ordered 2 small molds from Amazon..
Decided on Dorie's recipe from Around My French Table that I have on Kindle..
But added a few layers of baked brick dusted w/ icing sugar.. and some little decorations..
and a pipette filled with the couils as I didn't want the pastry soaking in a puddle:) But love the taste of the coulis.
The recipe is on so many websites and blogs..simply do a Google Search..:)
Or you can try Ina's by making Sam's beautiful heart..
Lots of inspiration out there in blogland..so many talented talented Valentine bakers..I have a bord..on Pinterest..just for all of them~
