There's been a lot of buzz over World Nutella Day out in Blogland lately, with a roundup of recipes posted here and here. While Nutella was once a staple in our pantry, I now find myself grabbing this local organic choice from the grocery shelf instead. I like it best spread on fresh sourdough bread -- which is what I did to celebrate World Nutella Day this Saturday morning. Later I celebrated my birthday (which is shared with WND) with a much more refined dining experience at this place, that has earned itself a little star. I have arrived in heaven. Really. Or at least arrived to adulthood . . . I am approaching forty, afterall.
Next on my "Culinary To-Do List" is David Lebovitz's homemade version or maybe even Martha's, which is a far cry from organic, for sure. Unless, of course, you think I could find organic condensed milk . . . in Italy. Laughable.
I started a little batch of something else homemade this weekend, as well:
It's my first-ever try at this potent potable. (Wish me luck. I'll need all I can get.) I'll share the recipe I used once I know if the "hooch" is good. It should be finished this weekend.
