I know I keep saying I’m not a breakfast person, but I sure love breakfast foods. Making homemade crepes had been on my mind forever. Since the beginning of this year actually.

A couple months back when my husband and I went on our annual shopping trip to the Mall of America, we passed their little crepes shop that offers them in any and every way. They have the most amazing flavor combinations, but the Nutella Crepes caught my eye (I know. Big surprise). I was set on getting one until I got close enough to read the prizes on their menu.

After overcoming the sticker shock, I still wasn’t comfortable with spending 7 or 8 dollars on one crepe. But that didn’t mean that I was over crepes in general. Oh no. I knew homemade crepes were in our near future.

You guys, this is a must-must-make. [Read more…]

Give me two minutes in the Easter candy isle at Target and something like this is the only possible outcome. Literally feeling like a kid in the candy store. Apparently not much has changed since I was 12 years old.

The only difference is that nobody can stop me from stocking up on candy (to last me a lifetime) and mixing it with Fudge Brownies and Nutella Rice Krispie Treats.

Being a grown-up does have its perks.

I am blaming my impatience on how these brownies came to be. I knew that I wanted to create bars that included Easter candies, but at the same time I really had a craving for Rice Krispie Treats and Nutella. I know! It’s that darn sweet tooth of mine. It really has a mind of its own. What can I say?

But instead of waiting to make Easter Candy Brownies and Nutella Rice Krispie Treats, I figured combining the two would be even better. And you probably guessed it by now.

It really was. I am smitten once again. [Read more…]

Homemade Nutella

A simple recipe is here to sweeten Monday mornings. Do you love Nutella? It goes without saying that I do. Eating chocolate for breakfast? I mean, it really doesn’t get any better than that, does it? The addition of hazelnuts gives the spread a wonderfully nutty flavor; adding a whole new dimension to the silky, smooth taste. If you have never tried it, please go ahead and give it a go. For those of you that know all about the lusciousness in a jar – rejoice. This homemade version is just as tasty as the store-bought kind and is ready to enjoy in no time. [Read more…]
