Valentine’s Day Crispy Treat
Ive come to the conclusion that the kitchen may be loves best learning lab.
Think about it. Eating is a necessity, but making the food is an act of service. I know Im not the only one who doesnt always feel like workingor cleaning upin the kitchen but we do it. Families and friends congregate there regularly to share the efforts, and to eat, and to talk. To talk is good!
My Sam is my best kitchen buddy. We do lots of talking and laughing in there. I love watching his expressive brown eyes and listening to his little boy voice as he explains his world to me. This week we made these rice crispy Valentine treats, or as Sam says and melts my heart, rispy cookies. Theyre a take on the popular Rice Krispie recipe that we all love. The addition of red and pink candies and chocolate makes them just right for a sweet Valentine remembrance. This is what we did:
