Yummy Eats: Chewy Nutella Cookies

Hey... me again bringing you this quick blog post on these delicious cookies I made this afternoon.  I was browsing through Pinterest (yes I am highly addicted to it) and my son who was supposed to be taking his nap said oh I want to eat that so I told him if he goes to sleep then I would make them for him.  He walked right to his rom and just went to sleep.... so when he woke up of course he asked for the cookies, and since I told him I would make them if he went to bed I had to follow through.   These were delicious! and the recipe made a boatload of them.

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cream butter with both sugars until light and fluffy. Stir in the egg, vanilla, and Nutella.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt into the wet mixture until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto baking sheet and bake for 6-7 minutes.

I have cookies for days....

Hope you have a fabulous week!

Yummy Eats: Salmon with Sauteed Spinach & White Beans

Hey Gals and Guys! How is everyone Saturday so far? I love finding healthy food to eat I had some spinach in the fridge that I needed to use ASAP and I knew that I wanted to have white beans as well so I went to good ol' Pinterest and found an easy recipe for sauteed spinach and white beans.  It was an easy to make recipe. 

  • 4 strips bacon, diced (I used crumbled bacon bits)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans Northern white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 cups baby spinach leaves, rinsed
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat and cook diced bacon until crispy for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove bacon from pan and place in a small bowl.  Leave bacon grease in the pan.
  2. Add olive oil to the pan and saute diced onion and garlic until soft, approximately 2-3 minutes.  Add beans and spinach.  Cook until spinach is wilted, approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add white wine to the pan with other ingredients and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
Yield:  4 main dish-sized servings or 8 side dish servings
Recipe adapted from Teenage Taste.
For the salmon I just seasoned it with a little bit of salt, sprayed the pan with extra virgin olive oil and cooked each side for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Served it with the spinach and bean side and some lemon. YUMMO!!

Hope you enjoy this super simple yet delicious recipe.
