Homemade Nutella

This is not my original brain-creation. I was actually inspired to make homemade Nutella by Buzzfeed Food. BF Food actually inspires a LOT of my cooking.

Nutella Brownies

The first time I saw this recipe for these nutella brownies on pinterest I knew I would have to try it. I have to admit that nutella is pretty expensive around here so you could definitely make brownies from scratch for a lot less money. Or, you could make nutella from scratch which is so …

Healthy Berry Sorbet

This is such a simple recipe (if you can call it that) that it sort of feels like cheating. I don’t have a big sweet tooth the way I know a lot of people do. This means that I rarely have sweet snacks stocked at my house so when I DO get a sweet tooth …

Grilled Steak in Rosemary Port Sauce with Blue Cheese

This rosemary port sauce is amazing on just about anything but especially your favorite cuts of steak. This original recipe was designed around beef tenderloin but I have also had amazing results with strip loin, rib-eye steak and  top sirloin.
