Girls’ Day In

4 Apr

Silliness is good for the soul.

My sisters, mom and I rediscovered this fact during our recent girls’ day in. Complete with tempura chicken wings and chocolate-oatmeal cookies, we pigged out, talked too much and watched sappy chick flicks. After eating more calories than should be legal, we also played a little bit of Just Dance – although I think we burned more calories laughing at each other. Sorry, but those pictures won’t be posted – hah!

To bring in the spring, we also took a mini photo shoot with a flower wreath we all helped make. And ironically, the pictures captured our different – yet strangely similar – personalities. Craziness runs in the family, just in case you haven’t already picked up on that.

Here’s wishing the weather will cooperate and get warm soon!

Until next time,




Nutella Hot Chocolate

7 Jan

Happy Monday!

The chilly day calls for a cup of something steamy. Why not stray from the typical hot apple cider or coffee and try some Nutella hot chocolate?

I know I’m certainly not the first to stir in the creamy chocolate mixture into a cup of hot water, but I was surprised how much different it tasted from normal hot chocolate – but in a good way. I made mine with a couple of heaping spoonfuls of Nutella, and a splash of cold milk.


I discovered Nutella only a few months ago, but since then have tried to incorporate it into just about anything I can. For the more adventurous and well-experienced users of Nutella, I would love any advice on how you make your Nutella hot chocolate – or Nutella anything! I enjoy dipping strawberries in it. And, I confess I sometimes scoop it out and eat it with my fingers if a spoon is not readily available. I know I’m not the only one ;)

Until next time,
