Nuts for Nutella

I LOVE Nutella. I've usually just spread it on some toast in the morning or sandwiched it in between a croissant but there are endless possibilities and new recipes to try with this rich, creamy, delicious chocolate spread! Check out some of these recipes I've discovered recently. I haven't made all of them (and probably shouldn't ...unless I want to expand my waistline drastically, ha!) But once in a while it won't hurt to try one of these recipes! ;)

Is your mouth watering yet?! Yum!

Book Recommendation

I enjoy browsing around and trying out Ree's delicious recipes at Just recently Ree Drummond (the author of 'The Pioneer Woman Cooks' and 'Black Heels to Tractor Wheels') released a children's book. I was excited about this one! I love to read books with my kids before bedtime and am always looking for good reads. 'Charlie The Ranch Dog' has been a huge hit with my Emma and Luke. It's endearing, funny and almost makes me want to have a basset hound added to our own family! ;) I've even been thinking about what old man names would best fit a dog...(if we were to actually get one). Winston, Earl, Hubert and Stanley are some of the runner's up. :)
P.S If you go to this month, Ree reads her story online for free! Check it out!
