nutella-icecream-3

I love Nutella! And, I’ve been enjoying it for as long as I can remember.  As a kid, while all of my friends were bringing PB&J sandwiches to school for lunch, I was munching on Nutella sandwiches. Sometimes, all by itself, sometimes with bananas, and sometimes with another favorite – marshmallow fluff!  The other kids didn’t know what to make of my “chocolate sandwiches”.  They’d never seen Nutella before.  It was pretty much unheard of in this sleepy little Florida town way back in the 70′s.  My mother used to have relatives ship it down to us or bring some when they came to visit from up north.  Fortunately, all of that has changed, and we can now find this luscious, creamy chocolate-hazelnut spread  hanging out right next to the peanut butter in the supermarket.

Even though I’m all grown-up now, I still never miss an excuse to eat Nutella in any way, shape or form – although my favorite way is still right out of the jar.  And, because I am a grown up, I get to do just that.  My house, my rules!

Since its first appearance on the culinary scene in the 1940′s, Nutella has become much more than a popular after-school snack. It is literally a cultural and social phenomenon, not only in its native country, Italy, but all the world over. Nutella is marketed in over seventy-five countries across the globe, and outsells all brands of peanut butter combined worldwide!  So, what better way to commemorate its success than to give it its own special holiday. read more >>

Believe it or not, the temperatures around here have been creeping up into the 70’s the past several days.  That sure is a far cry from the arctic blasts we were getting a mere few weeks ago!  Who knows how long it will last, though.  One thing I’ve …
