FREE Valentine Bookmark Printable

 If you have a child who loves all things reading, this FREE Valentine Bookmark Printable will be the perfect card for them to share with classmates this year!


If you've been around for more than two seconds over here, you'll know Kyle is obsessed with books and reading. When most other kids were playing with toys over Christmas break, Kyle had observed that he had 109 books in his bedroom, and was determined to read all of them before he returned back to school in January.

With Valentine's right around the corner, I thought it would be so fun and perfect to make a free Valentine bookmark printable to share with all of you, and for Kyle to handout at school. Now admittedly, Kyle found some Minecraft Valentine's that he's really jazzed to give his friends, but he has several teachers this school year, and he's 100% giving these bookmark Valentine's to them at their classroom party. 


Free Valentine Bookmark Printable:

This Valentine bookmark printable is pretty simple to make and cut out. There are two different color formats, a pink and purple template, and a red and blue template. To make these you'll simply print them out on card stock, and then using scissors or a paper cutter, cut along the thick black line to cut them out.

Best All in One Wireless Printer:

I bought the Epsom EcoTank Printer back in February 2020 and it's by far been one of the best purchases I've made. While the initial cost might be high, I can say that I've used this a ton and have not had to purchase new ink yet! The ink that the printer comes with is enough ink to print 4,000 colored pages and 7,500 black and white images. It is seriously the best feeling to not have to worry about running out of ink and being able to use your printer whenever you need it!

Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Homemade chocolate covered strawberries are super easy to make, way cheaper than purchasing at the store, and make the perfect treat for Valentine's Day!


Chocolate covered strawberries are the highlight treat during the month of February. While purchasing them and having them delivered to your home is easy and convenient, I much prefer making homemade chocolate covered strawberries. When you make them on your own you can control the cost, you know how fresh the strawberries were before you dipped them, and you get to customize them to your own preferences.

Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

Making homemade chocolate covered strawberries is super easy! All you need to do is microwave your chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Then you simply dip your strawberries, shake off the excess chocolate, and then let them harden on some wax paper. From there you can decorate with different drizzles, sprinkles, cookie crumbs, nuts, etc... 


How to Store Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

Chocolate covered strawberries are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will help preserve the strawberries the longest and prevent them from getting mushy before you get around to finishing them all.

Cheap Chocolate Covered Strawberries Under $20:

I was able to get everything I need to make these strawberries for under $20 and one trip to the grocery store. After purchasing everything I needed, my total cam to exactly $19 before tax, and I'm able to make way more strawberries than I would get if I paid someone else $20 to make them. 


How Long Do Chocolate Covered Strawberries Last:

Chocolate covered strawberries will last in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. They're best definitely best within the first two days, but day three definitely won't kill you. You just want to make sure they're gone before the fruit gets mushy and bad on the inside.

Best Chocolate for Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

You could use a super expensive, high quality dark chocolate if you really wanted to. I on the other hand refer to use almond bark almost exclusively when I'm making anything that involves melting and dipping chocolate. Almond Bark is available in the baking isle of most grocery stores, is very inexpensive for over a pound of chocolate, and oddly enough, contains zero almonds. 

Almond Bark is made of Sugar, Oil, Cocoa, Soy Lecithin, Artificial Flavor, and Milk. Is it the highest quality chocolate? No. Will it give you cancer? Maybe (joking kind of). Is it cheap, melts well, tastes great, and works for any an all dipping chocolate situations, 100% yes. 


How To Decorate Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

Step One: Melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between each session. 

Step Two: Dip your strawberries into the chocolate getting as close to the stem as possible, without actually getting the stem/leaves into the chocolate.

Step Three: Lay the chocolate covered strawberries onto some wax paper and allow the chocolate to harden. 

Step Four: Taking your Wilton Cookie Icing, make a back and forth drizzle design on each of the berries. For these, I did a drizzle with both the white and the pink icings. 

Step Five: Add a few sprinkles to the strawberries if desired. 

Step Six: Place the berries on a plate in the fridge to harden completely, about 1 hour.

30 Christmas Neighbor Gifts

Christmas neighbor gifts are such a fun way to celebrate the holiday with those in your close community. Here are 30 easy recipes to share with your neighborhood!

Christmas neighbor gifts are not something that I grew up doing but it seems to be a huge cultural thing to do here in Utah, and in Idaho where Derek is from. Maybe people did it in NY where I grew up, but it wasn't a huge focus or part of holiday celebrations for our family. Over the years I've come to really love this tradition. If you're in the market for some Christmas neighbor gifts ideas this holiday season, here are 30 recipes that I think would go over really well!

30 Christmas Neighbor Gifts:

Super Easy Gingerbread Cookies:

We make these cookies every year and they're so tasty and easy to make! There is no chilling of the dough, so they take less time than other cookies, and taste great both frosted or not!

Recipe for Christmas Crack:

This is my favorite treat to make during the holiday season! It starts with saltine crackers, pour homemade caramel on top, spread melted chocolate over that, a dash of holiday sprinkles and you're good to go! This is what I did for gifts last year and got rave reviews!

Canned Vanilla Spice Pear Butter:

I made this for neighbor gifts when we lived in Georgia and it got rave reviews! It's simply a canned pear sauce essentially, or maybe more like a jam, but if you eat it by the spoonful I'll never tell.

Amish Friendship Bread Without a Starter:

I got in a bad habit of making this bread and eating it single handedly this year, but it's so good literally everyone loves it. It's a banana bread consistency, and has cinnamon sugar through the middle and on top. It's perfect to share with friends for Christmas!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies:

These chocolate chip cookies are slightly chewier, more like what you would get from the bakery section at the grocery store, but they're also half dipped in chocolate and sprinkled in sea salt, and that my friends is a delicious combination.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

I haven't made these in ages, but brought them to a friend when they were hurt several years back. It might have been the brain injury talking but they seemed to really love these cookies. Although I'm partial to any chocolate peanut butter combo.

Swig Copycat Cookies:

Cookie culture is a real thing here in Utah. These Swig cookies are amazing and my personal favorite sugar cookie out of all the local cookie shops! This copycat recipe is super easy to follow and will make perfect treats for your neighbors if you happen to not live near one of these shops.. although I feel like they're creeping up nationally now too.

Reese's Fudge Recipe:

I'm a huge fan of basically all the three ingredient fudge recipes on the internet. This one is a perfect variation with Reese's pressed into the top, and mixed into the middle as well. You could easily make this, cut it up, and place into Christmas tins, and you've got a super easy and amazing treat!

The Best Brownie Recipe:

I first made these brownies back in 2013, and they have been my go-to since. They're perfectly soft and fudgey, with that brownie crackle on the top. They also cut up perfectly into squares when cooled, so you could easily gift them on a festive paper plate for Christmas.

Reese's Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies:

These cookies are a chocolate and peanut butter rush! You could make them a bit more Christmassy if you can find some red and green Reese's Pieces (just googled, they don't exist), but these are still a great cookie option.

Kids Stocking Stuffers

 With a couple weeks left until Christmas, these kids stocking stuffers will be a great way to finish off your shopping this holiday season. 


Over the weekend I finished purchasing the kid's stocking stuffers for this year. We're trying to keep it really simple, filled with just a few practical things I know they're going to get use from. I think in years passed I've just gone over board with the stockings and not matter how good my intentions start, it always ends up being things that don't get used and thrown out. This year I feel really strongly that I've purchased things that will get used and be loved.

Boy's Bowties:

Kyle has been wearing the same bowties for several years now, so I thought I'd add some variety into his options by adding a new pack of bowties to his life. These were only $8 on Amazon, and come with five bowties, so they're an awesome value!

Kid's Face Mask:

My friend Karem has been sewing face masks around the clock the last several months. I've had my eye on a few for a while and snagged a Star Wars one for Kyle, a flower printed on for Kinsley, and a poppy printed one for myself. They're made with beautiful fabrics and I can't wait for them to arrive. 

Fabric Hair Bows:

These were another awesome Amazon find! This 24 pack came in a set for only $7! There are two of each bow making them perfect for pigtails, and it will help to boost Kinsley's stash because I can't keep track of bows for the life of me and am always losing them! 

Pluffle:

I've heard rave reviews about Pluffle for a couple of years now and have not tried it with my kids. It's supposed to be a foam like version of kinetic sand, it never dries out, and provides lots of sensory fun! We got a 2pk for under $12, and I'll pop 1 in each of the kid's stockings. 

Etsy Vinyl Stickers:

My friend Wendy is homeschooling her kids this year, and her 9 and 11-year-old are taking an entrepreneur class. Her kids designed these vinyl stickers on their own, and Wendy opened an Etsy shop for them to sell! I knew I totally had to support their endeavor via stocking stuffers this year. I'm sure these will end up on water bottles and iPads the second they get them, and it's going to make me so happy seeing these stickers from our friends around our home! We've had a sample on our iPad for several weeks now and it's held up great and looks brand new still!

Turn Them Into Festive Christmas Pancakes:

If you want to make these pancakes a little more festive, you can certainly dress them up for the holiday season! For these pancakes I made some homemade whipped cream (1 cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract, whipped with electric mixer until whipped cream consistency!), and then topped with some red, green and white holiday sprinkles! This would make for a super easy breakfast on Christmas morning that your kids will love!

How to Properly Cook A Pancake:

I firmly believe there is a right and wrong way to do everything, and I'm very particular in how I cook my pancakes. I set my pancake griddle to 350º. After it's heated up I rub butter onto the surface. Than I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter and pour it onto the griddle. This ensures the pancakes are all the same size.

After the pancakes have cooked for a couple minutes they'll start to get bubbly on top. At this point you can flip your pancake, and then wait another minute or two before removing it from the heat. I would rather a pancake sit on the heat a little longer, then a little shorter. No one likes pancakes that are mushy in the middle, at least I don't. 

Make These Gingerbread Pancakes Vegan:

The recipe I used below is not vegan. If you're looking to make these into vegan gingerbread pancakes you can do so by replacing the egg with one flax egg. Simply mix one tablespoon of ground flaxseed with three tablespoons of water, and let it sit for 15 minutes. You can then use this mixture to replace the egg in this recipe. While I used cows milk for this recipe, you could also replace that with any dairy free milk that you like.
