I have no fond memories of nutella growing up, we weren’t allowed to eat it. But hazelnut has always screamed indulgence to me, it was always in the richest of flavours and recipes.
This pudding is something I’d like to add to my new traditions, something I can start making every year that maybe my kids will look forward to one day. But we still make the food she always made. It always feels like shes right there when we do.
She made traditional date squares every holiday, they were rich and luscious and buttery. I loved them. I think she’d like my ode to them, although they are very different. I’m going to continue sharing my version of things she always made around the holidays so you guys can get an idea of just how lucky I was, and how lucky I am now to be able to twist these recipes to fuel our bodies right.
Anything from the trolley? It’s Halloween and I had to make an appropriate treat. Not that I’m only thinking of Harry Potter on Halloween that is. If you stick around in the future you may see that I am a very big fan of that world. Today still seemed like a good time to share the recipe for these little savory treats I’ve grown to love so much.
With this balmy weather though I really wanted to make one last cold summer treat (that would actually still be really tasty to eat in the winter too.) I’ve been all about simplicity this summer, anything I can throw in my vitamix and poor into a pan and eat quickly makes me happy.
