Happy Monday everyone.  This weekend was pretty chill compared to last weekend, but we now only have three weekends left in tax season and I can’t wait to get my family back.  I hope you had a nice weekend too.

I’ve been having some serious fun in the kitchen lately and have been creating some new recipes I really think you are going to love.  After taking a bit of a blog cooking and shooting hiatus during the end of my pregnancy and the first few months of the boy’s life it actually feels pretty good to start using the creative side of my brain again.

First up is a delicious 4 Ingredient Nutella Energy Bites recipe.  You know I need these running around with twins all day!  These are extra special because they are made with that rich hazelnut spread we all love… NUTELLA!

    Sounds wonderful! My son’s high school French teacher introduced her class to Nutella years ago (he is now 26 and working in his college degree field) and we fell in love with it! Couldn’t be a simpler recipe! Thank you for sharing!
