Sure you can find soft pretzels in the frozen section at your local grocery, but what about beer soft pretzels? Complete with cheddar-cream cheese spread.
Red velvet isn’t complete without cream cheese. These cheesecake bars have a layer of red velvet cheesecake topped with a plain layer. Don’t forget the Oreo crust!
Welcome to Day 2 of #TripleSBites where 20 bloggers including myself are sharing spicy, saucy, and secy recipes for Valentine’s Day and beyond (said like Buzz Lightyear)! When it comes to Valentine’s Day desserts, decadent desserts as king and red velvet is a popular category. It’s time to splurge after 1-1/2 months of abiding by your new years resolutions so let’s make some red velvet cheesecake bars!
These bars have an Oreo cookie crust, topped by a layer of red velvet cheesecake, followed by another layer of plain cheesecake. The result is a bar that resembles a red velvet sheet cake topped with cream cheese frosting. Top them with fruit, fresh whipped cream, sprinkles, or enjoy them straight up. Whatever tickles your fancy!

What’s better than a cheese ball? Miniature cheese balls! With this recipe you can adjust for any flavor combination and can be served as a snack or to feed a crowd.
Everyone loves a good cheese ball. I mean, what is there not to love about them? Cheesy, creamy, flavorful and rolled in some of the best things like herbs, nuts, and even bacon. Is it possible to improve upon that design? Why yes, you just have to miniatureize them and they instantly become the easiest freaking cheese balls you ever did make. All you have do it take those individually wrapped Laughing Cow cheese wedges, roll each one into a ball, and then roll in whatever coating you desire. Done! Just refrigerate until ready to serve.
The great thing about using The Laughing Cow spreadable cheeses was the diversity of flavors available. I used swiss with garlic & herb and rolled it in a mixture of parsley and basil. But I didn’t stop there! The second flavor I made was with queso fresco & chipotle rolled in a mixture of cilantro and chili pepper. Some another great combinations could be white cheddar or spicy pepperjack rolled in bacon, mozzarella sundried tomato basil rolled in basil and parmesan, and swiss french onion rolled in crushed pretzels and green onion. The best part? You can make just enough for a snack or for an entire party! For a smaller serving use about 1 tsp of coating per wedge of cheese.

These fluffy lemon bars are so good you will find yourself rationalizing that such a light dessert just might be healthy. It’s all in perception right?
Well, well, well, looks like my Buckeyes wanted to make sure my first day on the new job was one to remember! What a game! So excited for Ohio State to be the first College Football Playoff National Champions!!! I would have never anticipated this to happen after hearing that our starting QB was injured right before the start of the season. Neither would I have dreamed of it after losing to Virginia Tech and then again after almost losing to Penn State. Losing our second QB to injury right before the conference championship game. The controversy of selecting Ohio State over TCU or Baylor. Worst of all, the tragic death of Kosta. The list of things this team has had to overcome this year is just craziness and the team stuck together through it all and proved everyone wrong. Add it to the list of reasons I am proud to be a Buckeye.
Going along with this new job of mine, you probably noticed the decrease in the amount of posts I share each week. I apologize for not feeding the addiction, providing daily fixes but until I can get back into a groove and have my kitchen fully organized (and not in boxes randomly dispersed around the floor), I regrettably will not be able to post as often. Lucky for you before getting the flu, traveling to Rochester for Christmas, and NYC for NYE, and moving to Ohio, I was able to whip up a few things to tide over some of the gaps. Bear with me as most things are sweets, such as these lemon lush bars, and may not abide by your new years resolutions. Just eat some healthy in compensate, that’s how it works right?
