Allergy Free Valentine's Day Snack

Allergy Free Valentine's Day Snack
Happy Valentine's week friends! Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays (however I'm pretty sure I say that about every holiday as its happening) I love celebrating love! Today I'm bringing you these cute treats in partnership with my friends at Children's Mercy Hospital. I am part of the #CMHMoms blog team and I will be bringing you helpful information about kids health each month. I have enough friends who have kids with food allergies to know that I always need to have an allergy friendly snack available when my kids have friends over. 

Valentine Strawberry Crepe Cake

Valentine Strawberry Crepe Cake Recipe

I mean. Have. You. Ever?! I had an idea like 6 months ago to do a ombre crepe cake and Valentine's Day seemed like the perfect excuse.  We make crepes (and when I say we I mean my husband, the crepe master) every Saturday morning.  Matt's mom is the master who taught my master and they were a breakfast standard in their house growing up.  I love them but for the life of me can't get the wrist rotation down to spread the batter around the pan evenly, dagnabit! So Matt makes the crepes in our house and he was so kind to indulge me and make me 20 extra crepes in 3 different shades of pink so I could create this epic valentine strawberry crepe cake! 

Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp Zucchini Noodle Pasta

Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp Zucchini Noodle Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Alfred Sauce
Its cold. like really really cold, is it cold where you live? Maybe you live some place warm and tropical, your windows are open as you sit on your couch reading this, listening to the waves crash against the shore. No, thats not your house either? Good thing because I might have to hate you if you were enjoying 85 degree weather in January. How on earth do we beat the winter blues friends? As much as I try I just can't turn the snow on the ground outside into sand, so here's the next best thing, enjoy some seafood and pretend your eating it on a patio outside in the sun listening to the ocean... 

This recipe for Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp zucchini noodle pasta is deee-licious. The sauce is a little bit indulgent, a full flavor alfredo sauce with sun dried tomatoes however, when you pour it over zucchini noodles you totally feel like you're keeping all your new years resolutions. Top it off with  SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co.'s Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp and you're headed strait for the coast in your mouth.  Totally a win-win-win recipe.
