A Quick and Easy Post

Somehow my blog changed while I was gone. Which one of you was messing around with the font? Anywho, I thought I'd pop in to share a quick and easy recipe that I recently tried. I haven't done a lot of cooking lately but Pinterest keeps me on my toes with new recipes that I am saving to try later or have tried. This is one of them and I can't ignore a recipe with Nutella in it!

Nutella 3 Ingredient Cookies
Source: somewhere in Pinterest world

1 cup Nutella
1 cup flour
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the three ingredients in a bowl. Form cookies and bake on a sheet for 6-8 minutes. It's really that simple. No added sugar, oil, or butter!

My only gripe would be that because of the lack of added oils and butter, the mixture was extremely crumbly. I really didn't think it was going to turn out very well. I had to work the mixture with my hands to form the cookies. But they came out pretty normal and were surprisingly tasty!

Back From the Dead

I'm alive!!! Hopefully, no one really thought I was gone. But yes, my blog did appear to die over the last few months. To be honest, I haven't been doing a ton of cooking lately. I also somehow became a vegetarian a few months ago. I'm not sure if this is a permanent lifestyle change or if I will be back to eating meat shortly. However for the moment, I can no longer stand the thought of beef, chicken, pork, eggs, or any type of seafood. I do hope that changes eventually and my taste for that comes back. Because for right now, my meals are on the bland side and not really worth blogging about. If/when this changes, you can count on me being back for sure. But for now, feel free to use the index on the side of blog to look up past recipes. And I hope you've created some great meals lately whether from here or someone else's blog. Happy eating (and drinking)!
