Valentine's Day Cake Pops


Today a teenage friend of mine, and fellow blogger, is providing us with a Valentine's themed recipe, something special to celebrate your love for your family. Although I've known Grace Johnson's dad since before I was married (waaay back in the early 80s), I didn't get to meet Grace until about 2005. That is because Grace's mom and dad were missionaries in the Philippines and my husband and I were missionaries in South America.

Grace was born in the Philippines and lived there until she was 8. One of the risks of missionary life is sickness and part of the Johnson family got sick enough that they believed it was wise to move back to the states.

The Johnsons have lived in California since then and her parents work fulltime in the local church I grew up in. Two years ago Grace got to go with her Dad on a visit back to the land of her birth. Now she's a 9th grader in the Johnson Home School. To learn more about Grace go to her blog or my interview with her.

Start thinking Valentines with Grace's yummy

  • 1 Betty Crocker cake mix (and the ingredients called for on the box)
