I’m a bona fide Nutella-holic.

I pretty much covered that little factoid about me in my last post, and here I am again, bringing you another hazelnut-stuffed dessert, only this time with bananas. Absolutely different, totally delightful, unbelievably satisfying for hazelnut + banana lovers such as myself. [Read more…]

I have a thing for pretzels.

It’s been a part of my life since I was a kid. We’d visit my family in Pennsylvania once a year, and when there, we always inevitably ended up at the mall, which prominently featured an Auntie Annie’s, my favorite mall food snack.
