What you’ll need

Cooking spray

3 tablespoons margarine

6 cups mini (or 60 regular-size) marshmallows

Red food coloring

9 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Heart-shaped cookie cutter

Plastic bags, yarn

How to make it

  1. To begin, lightly coat a 10- by 15-inch baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. Melt the margarine in a large pot over low heat. Add the marshmallows, stirring them continuously until they melt. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in drops of red food coloring until the color receives a thumbs-up from the chef.
  3. Add the Rice Krispies, stirring until they are evenly coated with marshmallow. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet.
  4. With waxed paper (or lightly buttered hands), smooth out the mixture, spreading it to an even thickness.
  5. Cut out hearts with the cookie cutter. Place each heart in a clear plastic bag, tie on a yarn bow, and they’re ready for giving. Makes seven 5-inch hearts.

Society says that Valentine’s is a day for couples to express their love to each other, and chocolates and flowers are a must.  But as a girl who dislikes Valentines Day, I’ve wondered, why not change it into a day to appreciate everything you do have and appreciate, in fact, yourself?  For the girls who feel the same, here are a few movie titles that you can view by yourself, with friends, or with your good friends Ben and Jerry … ice cream.


The Women (2008)- The main characters belong to Manhattan’s elite society and completely thrive on gossip.  The main character, Mary Hines, is married to an extremely wealthy husband, and together, they have a daughter named Molly.   Mary’s life is turned around when she finds out that her husband is cheating on her with the perfume counter woman or “spritzer girl.”  Throughout the movie, Mary is faced with confiding in her friends and facing many of life’s challenges.  Mary overcomes obstacles and achieves many of her dreams by believing in herself and with the help of her friends and family.

He’s Just Not That Into You– Throughout the movie, there are broken relationships that many people can relate to.  However, one of the main characters finds herself trying to hold onto all the wrong relationships just so she feels love.  Eventually, she realizes trying to make all the wrong relationships work isn’t really love.

Sleepover (2004)- Looking for a good movie to watch with your friends? Try this classic. Four friends set out against the most popular girls in school in a scavenger hunt.  The main characters have a sleepover to plan their strategy, but her parents say girls that they aren’t allowed to leave the house under any circumstnaces.  The girls sneak out of the house to complete the scavenger hunt. Adventure and fun follow.
