Relaxing Sunday and Nutter Fluffer Quesadillas

We had a very relaxing Sunday today 🙂

I got up early to get a pan of Roasted Zucchini Lasagna in the oven before church…  at this point you might hate me slash think I am crazy… so it could bake while we were gone.  It was a risk.  I’ve never taken it before, and it turned out FABULOUSLY! Covered for 2.5 hours at 250, perfect!  I topped it with cheese, and turned up the oven to 350 for a few minutes, and was easily able to give it just enough time to rest before lunch.

Speaking of… good friends of ours came from Ames for the afternoon, and we had a blast chatting it up.  Sadly it was soggy out and we weren’t able to play a few rounds of Kubb with them, but life goes on and we had just as much fun talking about everything from meat dresses to stepdads.  Did you see the connection?  Me either, but it was good 🙂

This evening, we hung my new kitchen shelves…

I talked to my mom on the phone for a bit, worked on my new recipe box…

… and I made pot sticker turkey burgers for dinner. (and they were mind blowing)

Matt and I were craving a little chocolate after dinner, so I finally whipped us up some yummy nutter fluffer quesadillas!

They were super easy..  a little Nutella on a tortilla

and a little bit of marshmellow creme… and a warm skillet

and viola!

Ooey Gooey Nutella…. mmmmm… delicious!


Nutella Cookies

Yes, Nutella cookies.  I know, it’s a simple marriage of two wonderful and delicious things to make something oh so yummy and good!  I’d like to say I came up with this on my own.  I did not.  However, I did make some alterations!  So, if you want the original recipe  you and find it here.  Otherwise…. drool at the photo and consult my recipe below!  Enjoy! (it’ll keep you from simply eating the entire jar of Nutella with a spoon!)

  • !/2 cup butter at room temp
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 2.5 T milk
  • 2 cups flour… i used white whole wheat
  • 1 t. soda
  • 1.3 cup chopped chocolate chips or mini morsels.

Per usual, cream the butter and sugar.  Then add your egg and incorporate.  Then, add milk and vanilla, and mix.  Finally, add your Nutella, and mix well.  Then, i like to add the baking soda.  After mixing that in, I add the flour a little at a time, and make sure it’s good an incorporated.  Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
I would recommend chilling your batter for half an hour, or twenty minutes, or five, whatever you can stand really.  Drop rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet…. or use your cookies scoop like me (who wishes I could find a half an inch one so my cookies were smaller)  Bake for about 11 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool on the pan for four minutes, then move to a wire cooling rack.

This cookies were chewy and delicious!  Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
