Kid approved Valentine's Day breakfast

Nothing beats a good breakfast to start the day out! Be sure to give yourself a break and pick something you can prep ahead of time and just pop in the oven or pull out of the fridge in the morning. It's your Valentine's Day too, so make sure you set yourself up to enjoy it as well! ;)

Some of my favorite make-ahead items for special holidays are cinnamon rolls, egg casseroles, pastries, fruit, and special holiday cereals! My daughter also loves having "coffee" with us, AKA frothed milk with some cinnamon and occasionally whipped cream and sprinkles.

But I think Valentine's Day calls for some pink food coloring or homemade strawberry syrup! I use this milk frother and I love it because it has a temperature knob so I can make my daughter's "coffee" the perfect kid temperature!

Next on the agenda is crafting some
