Stuff.

1. I’ll pay someone one thousand dollars to show up at my doorstop in five minutes with these. I’m not even joking.


2.  I don’t love Nutella. I mean… it’s okay. But I don’t love it/crave it/go crazy over it like many people do. Now that I think about it, this is probably how many people feel about my obsession with bacon. Hmmpf.

Well, I still think all of the wild Nutella creations look delicious. I probably would eat them if they were placed in front of me. But until they appear, I’ll gladly continue my jar-a-week habit of my other favorite chocolate nut butter. And if I’m being honest, White Chocolate Wonderful is really my favorite.



3. I had the most delicious casserole ever yesterday. I sort of felt like I was having a heart attack afterwards, but it was totally worth it. So worth it, that I am making the recipe so I can share it with all of you. And I selfishly want to eat it again.


4. I’m so grateful to all of you vegans and vegetarians who visit my blog everyday and see bacon post after bacon post with bacon drippings and bacon overload. It means so much to me! Now really, can you all come over here and make me like veggies? I’m thinking it will take four of you to hold me down, two of you to hold my mouth open, and a few more to shove greens down my throat. It might work.

    I’m a vegan, love your bacon posts, and wish I had a chef to make me love veggies MORE. I still struggle to make vegan dishes that I really love. Mmmm…bacon!

    I’m not a fan of nutella. I think White Chocolate Wonderful or Justin’s choc. PB blow it out of the water.

    i have to say that i am sad you don’t love nutella. especially since we share the same affinity for bacon! my dad was in the army, and i grew up eating nutella. we were in germany for 6 years, and nutella is one of the things that always brings back being a little kid. spread on fresh brotchen, nothing better. my 8 year old didn’t know until she was about 4 that everyone didn’t eat nutella on their pancakes! i also like to dip pretzels in it. sweet, salty, yum! i love all different kinds of nut butters, but nutella will always be my favorite. i love the taste of hazelnut, but i don’t like to eat them because they make my jaws tired.

        i think the thing about nutella is that you expect it to be more chocolatey than it is because of the color. and you should put it on a peanut-butter cookie. or those cinnamon sugar crackers you made, which i made this weekend and gave to my daughter and her friends with a little dish of nutella. happy, happy kids! thanks for your blog, jessica. you complete me! (i told my husband i have a girl crush on you. he is just happy that i feed him)

    I’ll chip in $500 if you share those with me… I sent that link this morning to my husband who was very enthusiastic about me making them. I do enjoy nutella, but I’m a chocolate-and-peanut-butter (together or separate) nut at heart, so that picture of the chocolate PB has me totally craving right now.

    I do love Nutella. But both DCD and WCW win. I’m constantly trying to prove my love to all three though. I ignore one in the cupboard and it gets all jealous. They fight for my attention more than my three children do.

    you know, I’m not that into nutella either. But I think that’s because I haven’t eaten too much of it…I”m too cheap to buy it. I could see myself getting addicted. And yes, veggies…i go through spurts. Currently if I don’t put spinach in my smoothies, I’m not getting my veggies in.

    Love the shout out for vegetarians! Try a few recipes from my blog and you might just find that you like a veggie or two.

    Btw, I just posted a recipe for nut butter balls using both White Chocolate Wonderful and Dark Chocolate Dreams. And I drizzled melted white chocolate on top. It was insane.

    I also eat DCD by the spoonful! Shhh, don’t tell my fiance!

    Oh my! Those cookies look fantastic. Sadly, I don’t have any mini marshmallows right now and ALL the stores are closed because it’s family day today (an Ontario Provincial holiday).

    I’m a vegetarian, and I visit your blog everyday! I used to eat, and love bacon too, so it’s no big deal. So many of your recipes are vegetarian friendly that it makes up for it.
