Happy Valentine's Day!

This is it...the last of the bulk candy.  I don't know what I was thinking when I bought that much candy!I added jellybeans into a glass vase, using a smaller vase to hold the water for the roses.
 It is an easy and unique way to give those you love flowers.
 This pretty Easter jellybean centerpiece was my inspiration, found at A Passion For Creativity
Today I also made the Betty Crocker heart peanut butter cookies that are everywhere on Pinterest.
I went over to their site and noticed that Betty is using a different recipe for the peanut butter cookie.  I'm sure it's great, but Nicole has been using an old Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie recipe that you can't go wrong with.  If they are not overcooked, these cookies are sooooo good. 

Here's the recipe:

1/2 c. margarine or butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

Refrigerate, bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes. 

We are off to all the class parties..I swear holiday party days at school are some of the craziest.
  Nicole will be back tomorrow to share her Valentine party ideas!
