Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, all! I know it’s cheesy, but I love Valentine’s Day. LOVE IT. River and I had a Valentine’s Day party for his little buddies on Monday, so we’ve been celebrating all week, basically. Today, I’m celebrating my favorite Valentine!


In honor of Valentine’s Day, some love-y wisdom to inspire you:

“When love is not madness, it is not love.”
Pedro Calderon de la Barca

“We loved with a love that was more than love.”
Edgar Allen Poe

“I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“We are nothing, and we are everything. Look up — every star another world, but what I seek, near or far, is love’s outline in your face.”
Jeanette Winterson

K and I have big plans tonight for an indoor picnic with some pizza delivery and more chocolate than is advisable. I genuinely cannot wait. What about you guys, big plans for Valentine’s day dates?

Whatever you’re doing, happy love day, everyone. Wishing you all the sweetness, kisses and chocolate that today is all about!


Kids’ Kitchen: Sweet Potato Apple Pancakes

Sweet Potato Apple Pancakes

Happy hump day! I’ve been feeling so stuck in a rut lately with poor River and his dinners. This morning I was feeling inspired to remedy this rut situation so I made a whole bunch of stuff that I can pop in the freezer and take out every day. These Sweet Potato Apple Pancakes I made first and while I was making everything else, I gave River one for his morning snack. It was a hit, so I thought I’d share this recipe with you first. Of course, as with pretty much everything I make for River, these are delicious for anyone, including adults and would be a lovely addition to a dinner or brunch as a side dish. Hope your little ones (and you) enjoy them as much as mine (and I) did!

(makes about 9 patties)


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup self rising flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • vegetable or olive oilSweet Potato Apple Pancakes


  1. In a large bowl add sweet potato, apple, flours, eggs, garlic powder and salt. Mix well to combine.

  2. Add oil to a large pan and heat over medium heat.
  3. Place about 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake in the pan and press flat with the back of spoon. Cook for about 5 minutes then flip and cook about 5 additional minutes on the other side.

  4. Remove patties from heat and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil and cool.
