20190209_112313HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

To celebrate the holiday, this morning I made Huevos in the Heart and Chocolate-Covered Cherry Smoothies for breakfast!

Huevos in the Heart

This recipe isn’t too challenging, although mine did not turn out looking like Ree Drummond’s perfect example.  At first it actually did look amazing, but as the egg continued to cook it looked less and less like a heart.

I discovered if I flipped the quesadilla once, like you would with a pancake, the egg was cooked more thoroughly AND you can actually see a heart-shape on one side.

I would definitely make this again, and it’s so simple!  The recipe has an option for either corn or flour tortillas, but I would recommend corn.  It adds a really nice flavor, and works especially well with the salsa!

As long as you can fry an egg, you can make this recipe.

Cost: Cheap

You’ll need butter, tortillas, eggs, and salsa.

Chocolate-Covered Cherry Smoothie

This is another super easy recipe, which is always nice!  Just toss everything in a blender and combine.  The only minor effort would be to grate chocolate for the topping.

It looked great, and had a better color than the smoothie I made yesterday, but I didn’t enjoy this as much as the Huevos in the Heart.

I normally love chocolate at breakfast, but this just didn’t do it for me.  It was really good, but I wouldn’t bother making it again.  My husband loved it though, and gives it 9.5/10.

Difficulty: Easy

Just toss in a blender and blend.  Minor effort on grating chocolate, too.

Cost: Average

You may need to purchase yogurt, milk, frozen cherries, chocolate syrup, and/or semisweet chocolate.  Vanilla is also included, but I’m assuming most people have that already!
