The virtual wedding shower that sweet Joanne, Shelly, Kristan, Megan, Lauren, Julie, Tara, Madison, Jenna, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

It’s Day 2 of Cookie Week here on Dessert For Two, and we’re re-visiting an old favorite.  I shared this recipe a few years ago, but I think it bears repeating.

In the South, it’s all red velvet cakes and coconut flakes for Christmas.  These go-to recipes must be on the table or nothing feels right.  However, I’m always looking for a twist on the classics and had the idea for red velvet cake bites instead of a towering 3-layer cake. You’ve got options with this [ Click to continue Reading! ]
