Mon 2/5: World Nutella Day

Nutella! If I could eat anything by the gallon, it would be Nutella! It was originally developed due to a shortage of cocoa supplies following the second World War. Originally it was shaped into a loaf that could be sliced (OMG, can you even imagine that deliciousness), it then transitioned into a creamy paste called super crema and then in 1964 we were blessed with the final product of the Nutella we all love today! And by all I mean the over 29 million Facebook followers and 14 million Twitter followers, wow! The world loves Nutella so much that recently chaos broke out in France when Nutella released a 70% discount on this coveted product causing multiple riots to break out at local grocery stores across the country. If I’m telling the truth, I might throw a few bows to get my hands on this creamy delicious hazelnut spread.

To celebrate National Nutella Day, check out this easy 3 ingredient Nutella Mug Cake that takes all of 5 mins to whip up…which might just be a bit too easy to for your waist line!

Sun 02/04 Puppy Bowl Sunday…. Oh Yeah and the Super Bowl Too

Welcome to Puppy Bowl Sunday, or as my husband says Super Bowl Sunday! Honestly since the Falcons aren’t in, I decided to get super focused on the 39 fuzzy, precious, smoochy puppy faces that make up the starting lineup to this annual bash. This two hour event brings some great focus to ADOPTION! There are more than 6 Million animals in shelters across America that are looking for their fur-ever home, so be sure to check out your local shelter to start your own fur family.

Before you sit down to fill out your precious puppy bracket, mix up a crunchy, chocolatey, peanut buttery batch of Puppy Chow (only for people, not for actual puppies)! This is one of my family’s favorites and will prove for great munching during the big game (Puppy or Super) and is an easy recipe to do with the kids! Try building a “Puppy Chow” Bar and include little bowls of toppings such as mini chocolate bars, marshmallows, pretzels and dried fruit. Just like a puppy bowl bracket, both adults and kiddos love building their own special “bowl” treats.
