Need another sweet Valentine’s treat?
You have to try these adorable little teeny-tiny cheesecakes I made with my little guys the other day!
My four year old is a SERIOUS strawberry fan-like he eats a package almost every day. And don’t get me started on his cheese consumption! So these little cheesecakes were the perfect dessert to make for him after some hard work with his speech pathologist yesterday.Print
