Sweets for our Sweethearts

We spent a LOT of time indoors recently with these snowstorms, so I utilized our time well and we baked, baked, baked. As I've said before, all I have to yell out is "Do you want to mix?" and he comes running to the kitchen. We continue to work on perfecting the cake ball.

It's been ages since we made my mom's Italian ricotta cookies. Always a HUGE hit. So moist! You also can't go wrong with sugary frosting and sprinkles.

I'm a sucker for decorated sugar cookies, but time and patience wore thin, so instead of elaborate frosting, we just did all Joseph's friends/sweethearts names.

The plan was to make cookie plates to deliver to our friends, but today we decided it would be more fun to have everyone over for milk and cookies after lunch. So we set out a table full of treats.

It sure was hard to wait for the guests to arrive.

Ethan is a master baller. He made every shot from everywhere!

Benjamin and Joe Joe hugged it out many, many times.

Cake balls were not really meant to be consumed in one bite.

Joseph's piping skills are amazing!

I love you too, honey!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
