Celebrating a full month of birthdays!

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we are reminded of the hilarious situations that arose from Nellie and Laura’s competing efforts to attract Almanzo’s attention. The Cinnamon Chicken scene from “Back to School Part 2” (Season 6, Episode 2) is consistently a fan favorite. See the funny video showing how Laura’s secret ingredient ruined Nellie and Almanzo’s first date. Want to try the recipe for yourself, but with the right ingredients?

In the book On the Banks of Plum Creek, Ma showed Laura and Mary how to make a row of paper stars to decorate their home. They hung this lovely papercraft over the edges of the shelves, so the light would shine through them. Now you can enjoy making this craft in your own home with items you probably already have on hand. See how to make beautiful paper star garlands as the Ingalls did, as well as a Valentine’s Day-inspired heart-shaped variation.

While Laura and Mary made their paper stars, Ma made delicious vanity cakes. These special treats are so light and fluffy with nothing inside that it’s no wonder they’re called vanity cakes. If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day get-together, vanity cakes are a perfect sweet to serve. You can enjoy them alone or topped with blueberry sauce.

In the Little House book series, Laura Ingalls Wilder depicts her husband, Almanzo, as handsome, courageous, chivalrous, and talented. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’re remembering their special courtship, which was described in These Happy Golden Years and depicted in Season 6 of the “Little House on the Prairie” TV series.

This year we have an array of Little House on the Prairie inspired gifts specifically for Valentine’s day! You’ll find Valentine note cards, greeting cards, mugs, drinking glasses, and more. These items make a sweet gift for the Little House on the Prairie fans in your life!
