Red Velvet Cheesecake Bars

Red Velvet is hands down my favorite type of dessert. I love it when Valentine’s Day rolls around because it means that red velvet is so much easier to find. Of course, for me, red velvet treats have to come with cream cheese or they just aren’t “right.” I made red velvet cheesecake bars and they were the perfect combination of red velvet flavor with cream cheese mixed in!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini

Hi there! I’m Christin, the gal behind the blog Blue Crab Martini where I dish up (mostly) healthy food, shake up creative cocktails, and give a glimpse into what life on the Chesapeake Bay is all about. I hope you stop by and visit me sometime! Today I’m so excited to be sharing this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini with you as my first contributor post here on Shannah’s beautiful blog!

Are you going out for Valentine’s Day this year?

If you’re like me, the answer is a definitive NO! Why? Because after spending the day chasing my two kids, attending sports practices, mopping the floors, cooking dinner, and trying to hold on to that last little ounce of sanity, there is absolutely no part of me that feels like getting dolled up and going out. No sparkly dress and 4” heels for me this year! Instead we’re planning a nice quiet evening at home.

Dark Chocolate Frozen Yogurt Bites

We keep a pretty hectic schedule around here which means I don’t get a ton of time to myself. It also means that treats and sweets are typically shared at least 3 ways. I love my kids and family but sometimes a little “me” time is definitely in order. I am also trying to really watch what I eat and limit high sugar sweets though. The frozen yogurt bites we typically make are a HUGE hit with the kids so I decided to try making some dark chocolate frozen yogurt bites which are perfect for me!
