Happy Monday! Are you ready for a week of Valentine’s treats? If not, this is your fair warning. There may or may not be an abundance of chocolate, sprinkles and unbelievable desserts coming your way. Much like any other week, ha! I was definitely thinking about the upcoming romantic holiday and have something for everyone coming up. A no-bake treat, something a bit more fancy, and a yummy surprise that no one could say no to.

Let’s start out with a crowd-pleasing dessert bar. Red Velvet and Cheesecake definitely speak the language of love, especially when combined into one tasty creation.

These homemade bars are super easy to prepare, but I am sure they would impress just about anyone with taste buds and a craving for something sweet. I also love the fact that they can be prepared in just a couple of minutes and are totally make ahead friendly. In fact, they actually taste better if they had several hours to chill in the fridge.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Bars definitely get two thumbs up! [Read more…]

Ho Ho Ho. It’s Christmas Eve.

Few days feel as special as the eve of a holiday or celebration. I have mentioned before that I am lover of eves of big and small occasions alike. This one in particular deserves extra recognition as it’s not only a holiday but also a deeply spiritual day for me and my family. Our hearts are filled with excitement, gratitude and wonder as we ponder the events of this night so many years ago in our hearts. We celebrate the birthday of Jesus with a special cake every year, singing “Happy Birthday” and blowing out candles. Grandma will prepare her chocolate cake with white frosting while I wanted to go a different route this year. Brownies and chocolate started to swirl in my head and before I knew it, I had whipped up a batter of ooey gooey red velvet brownies and prepared the most outrageous chocolate frosting in history. No really. It’s epic!
