So, yesterday, for the very first time in my life, I finally tried Nutella.


This stuff is ridiculous.  Ridiculously good.  I’ve known about Nutella for a while now, and recently I’ve been seeing so many recipes on Pinterest that incorporate it so I finally decided to buy myself a jar.  It’s a little more pricey than peanut butter so I almost put it back on the shelf, thinking I’d just make some Peanut Butter cookies instead, but the desire for one particular recipe pressed me to buy that jar. I had come across a recipe for Nutella & Cream Cheese Swirled Blondies by the Cookin’ Canuck, and I knew that I just had to buy the Nutella… and the bigger sized jar, at that (I get a little too caught up in looking at the unit prices… why spend 28 cents an ounce when you can spend 26, I’m sure I’ll find a way to use it all up somehow!)

I’m so glad that I did too, because Nutella is delicious and I plan to do a lot more baking with it.

Yeah, baking.  Not spooning it out of the jar and straight into my mouth.  Cause that would just be ridiculous ;).

The first time I tried this recipe it was a little too gooey for me; I love my desserts a little on the underbaked side but the middle almost wasn’t even holding it’s form, so I made a few edits and I think it’s just right now.

Just in case you’re not yet convinced that you need to make these right now, I’ll tell you that after I tweaked the recipe a bit I brought a batch into work and I have never had so many people ask me for a recipe.  They disappeared SO fast!



OK, I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I have a good reason, I promise. I have several reasons, actually.  Several frustrating, scary, exciting, fantastic, and all around time-consuming reasons.  Be forewarned, though… this post is a long one and there is no recipe at the bottom (though I did just …...

In remarkably stark contrast to my last blog entry, I present to you one of the most diabolical desserts you may ever see me post. A dessert so deliciously sinful I can’t even refer to it by its given name which I’ve seen elsewhere on the internet and so I shall call them only “unscrupulous …...

As I mentioned before I’m not a big fan of football, though Zach, my boyfriend of four years is (very much so). Well tonight he is taking me to my first ever football game (Ravens vs. Patriots)!  Even though I’m really not a football fan, I’m looking forward to going to this game, it should be far …...
