Valentine’s Day Fun (and Strawberry Cupcake recipe!)

Valentine’s this year was spent with our godkids and their parents. I made delicious strawberry cupcakes in honor of the day. I found a recipe for Strawberry Cake via Pinterest and I mostly followed the recipe other than their form and the icing.

Strawberry Cupcakes


2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 cup milk
1/4 cup mashed strawberries
1 small box dry strawberry jello


1. Mix together sugar, eggs, oil, milk and strawberries. In separate bowl whisk together flour, sugar and dry jello. Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix until smooth.

2. Pour into greased muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Top with icing or frosting of choice.


Bethany and I were accidental twinkies! πŸ™‚

Christopher and Skit!

Somehow I managed to not get a photo of Aiden, but I did get this shot of Oreo and AJ snugglin’ on the couch.

Speaking of Oreo, I Β made him homemade doggie treats for his Valentine’s gift!

It’s heart-shaped for Valentine’s! πŸ˜‰

Β Sorry for the high pitched, sugary-sweet voice. That’s my talking-to-Oreo voice, haha!
