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…]

There seems to be a theme around here when it comes to my posts.
