baking love: v day makes and a touch of diy

I made these beautiful waffles for our Valentines Day morning breakfast…  I use the thermomix Easy Peasy Waffles Recipe, topped with fresh blueberries, icing sugar, maple syrup and a vanilla bean ice-cream.  So simple and we really enjoyed them.  My toddler especially!

I made this beautiful lemon, ricotta and almond cake, the recipe I was given from my gorgeous cousin over on blogofahappywife.  It’s gorgeous and so is her blog!

And finally, for dinner, some gnocchi with a basil pesto and snowpeas.  The gnocci I could have made in my thermomix, but honestly, it makes wayyyy too much and this recipe I found via Lorraine Pascale was so simple.  Instead of using potatoes, marscapone is used.

And we used these inexpensive IKEA Spice Racks to make beautiful book shelves for Ellie’s room.  And when I say inexpensive – they are $2.99 EACH!
Just an easy DIY Paint Job.  I love using books as art.  Thanks again Pinterest!
