Spreadable WONDER!

nutella-sandwhich2

So there’s this stuff called Nutella and if you haven’t tried it you are missing out on life. I still remember my first experience at UC Berkeley, the creamy goodness was spread on a warm crepe with strawberries and whipped cream, it was simply heavenly. There was nothing better after getting out of class then walking down Telegraph, with the sun out eating one of those crepes. Actually it was so good I would have to sit down on the steps of Sproul and focus on it alone.

 

That moment flashed through my head as I walked down the aisle of the grocery store this week and spurred me purchasing a jar of the dark creamy wonder-spread. A bit pricey at  6 dollars for a small jar, but worth every penny. Alas it is not just my nostalgia that has me so in love with this stuff, the moment I tasted a small teaspoon money fell from the sky and unicorns appeared. Ok, ok, not really but the bold, not overly sweet, perfectly smooth texture made my tongue tingle. I think I may have done a happy food dance. It is perfect anytime you need a quick sweet pick me up and has so many pairings. Nutella and strawberries and bananas, melt some into coffee, spread it on sum toast, mix it into pancake batter, literally it can do no wrong. I even tried it on a stolen piece of not super ripe avocado from my roommates salad, I think there may be potential for something great there as well. 

 

My favorite Nutella snack at the moment is a Nutella, banana, and peanut butter sandwich on gluten free Udi bread (best gluten free bread in the game). I sprinkle some chia seed meal (superfood) on it for added health (mainly to make myself feel better about this gluttonous sandwich), griddled to crispy perfection in butter just as you would a grilled cheese.omg. yum. This post is over because I need a midnight snack.

 

Btw. Nutella is like 5 billion calories per spoonful. But it’s ok, moment of happiness you have is life changing, just don’t eat the whole jar in one sitting. Although it’s so perfectly rich you won’t want to.

my life has been a very interesting journey thus far. in my quarter century crisis im and not certain of much except that i love cooking and entertaining, and pleasing people is my passion. (wait that sounded a little funny) i am goofy eccentric, and love to laugh, in fact i often laugh at the most inappropriate times. i place high value in honesty and working hard. i don’t really believe in faking it until you make it, without some base knowledge or some sort of depth to your cause. i believe in making mistakes and trying everything once as long as you bring yourself no harm and no harm to others. i am a new age hippy, my words to live by are freedom, serenity, and love. i look for signs of the world and listen. i do judge, anyone who says they do not is a liar, but i use my judgements against you to reflect back on me to see how i can better myself. i hate constraints of our society, including grammar, punctuation, and recipes. i think fast except when it comes to numbers. the culinary world has always been and shall be my safe haven and outlet. i want to inspire, teach, and learn.
