{Guest Post} Valentine’s Day Pancakes from Ang at Juggling Act Mama

Welcome to the birthday extravaganza!

Each year, I like to take my birthday week off to relax and enjoy some down time. In place of reading stuff from me each day, I feature a bunch of awesome bloggers and their projects/recipes!

Today, opening up our week of awesomeness, is Ang from Juggling Act Mama! She is sharing some delicious looking pancakes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday!

Hi, I’m Ang (as in, short for Angela). I’m a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend, attempting to do it all – because, well, I want to (and I’m a bit of a nut!). I’m also a writer, crafter, scrapbooker, amateur photographer and Pinterest addict. Long before Pinterest, I developed addictions to books, snapping memories of my kids, and chocolate desserts… or chocolate anything…or…ok, just sweets in general – don’t judge me! I love being creative.

I’m married to my best friend and high school love (we’ve been together for more than half my life now, and married for 8 years). He’s a very supportive albeit, handsome dorky guy – (though I can’t complain since I have live-in tech support!)  He can also make me crazy, and I’m not talking about the good crazy: I’m a multi-tasker that swears by lists; he’s a realist that detests them.
We have two beautiful children – ok, I’m biased, but who isn’t when it comes to their kids, right? Our sweet, silly, smart son, Ethan, is four, and our darling, dimpled, diva daughter Olivia (Livi) is one.
I am the proud owner of an Etsy shop called AngelFlowers, where I sell some of my handmade hair accessories. Oh, and I also work full time at an awesome start-up, as an office manager, (this company has the potential to rock peoples worlds, in ways no one has imagined before).  So maybe I have my hands a little full… but don’t we all?
I’m excited to be here to share with you a special way to say I love you to everyone in your family this Valentine’s Day with a ‘heart-felt’ pancake breakfast. (So corny, but I couldn’t help myself!) These pink and white pancakes are so easy to make, so here’s how to do it.
Start with your favorite pancake mix.  I love these Fluffy Pancakes, which are light and delicious, and perfect for cutting shapes out of them.  
Simply mix up your batter, then divide it into two bowls.  In one bowl, add red food coloring to get the color pink or red you want.
Next, fry your pancakes just as you normally would, taking care to make an equal number of regular and colored pancakes.
Carefully cut the heart-shapes out of the pancakes using a cookie cutter.  Next, remove the heart cut outs and put the white one into the colored pancake, and the colored one into the white pancake.
For an extra special treat, sprinkle in some mini chocolate chips, fresh raspberries, or serve these with a quick Strawberry Sauce.
These pancakes are sure to put a smile on your valentine’s face!
I hope you’ll come visit me for more creative recipes and fun activities to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
