Lily wants to make the perfect Valentine heart for her mommy, but each day something goes wrong. On Monday it's too pointy and Tuesday it's too round, etc. Finally it's Valentine's Day and she strings all the imperfect hearts together to present to her mother. Of course, her mother loves them and loves Lily because her heart is perfect. This was a good book to go with our treats because our hearts most certainly didn't turn out perfect.
I started with big boxes of strawberry and black cherry Jello. I was looking for the watermelon to make pink but they didn't have it. I chose black cherry thinking it would make a rich romantic red. I was wrong. Black cherry actually turns out pretty much black. Go figure.
The Food Librarian's broken glass jello. I took the scraps, chopped them up, and put them in a small glass dish.
