It's almost here! Heart-shaped food day!

Most of you probably call February 14th "Valentine's Day," but around here! It's heart-shaped food day.

Here are ideas on celebrating the kids you love all day on heart-shaped food day — for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course ... dessert!

A Heart-y Breakfast: Heart-Shaped Eggs

You could do heart-shaped pancakes easily — all you need is a cookie cutter or heat-safe mold — but why stop there? 

These heart-shaped boiled eggs are easy to make, and your family will be sure to tell you how egg-cellent you are for making them.

What you'll need:

  • Freshly hard-boiled eggs
  • A piece of stiff cardboard - a box or an empty and cleaned juice or milk carton works great! shaped into a V-shape about the height of an egg
  • Chopsticks
  • Rubber bands
  • Plastic wrap


  1. Wrap your just-peeled eggs in plastic wrap.
  2. Place inside the V-shaped cardboard.
  3. Lay a chopstick on top of the eggs.
  4. Wrap the rubber band securely around the chopstick and cardboard so the egg is nestled tightly between them.
  5. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Cut in half and serve with toast and berries to your egg-ceptional Valentine!
