One of the things that we looked most forward to with our new way of life was getting away from the stress of city life and learning to relax.  We are currently in Bar Harbor, Maine, and summer is making an appearance.  So with the help of Blue Bunny's Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream, I decided to try my hand at Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake Parfaits!

Really!  It's the best of both worlds!  Ice cream and cheesecake in one fabulously delicious package!  Perfect for a warm sunny day along the ocean!
