Skinny Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes are a perfect guilt-free treat for Valentine’s Day (or any day)! This recipe substitutes applesauce for oil and saves 965 calories on the total recipe, but still makes a spongy moist little cake!
Happy almost Valentine’s Day! I think I have a love-hate relationship with this made-up holiday. My husband and I started officially dating February 15th, which is now 10 years to the day when I made him try spicy tuna as his first sushi and it failed miserably. Then hours later I told him he should be my boyfriend, yep…true story and here we are, our first married Valentine’s Day.
