Spoiler alert! I was unsuccessful.

Using inspiration from a recent trip to iHop, Sunday's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, and my love of Nutella I embarked on this unforgettable journey.
Whoa whoa whoa, let me back up. Have you had Nutella? If you haven't, stop what you are doing right now and go get some! It's absolutely fantastic. It's not chocolate, it's not vanilla, it's not peanut butter... it's HAZELNUT! My obsession started in London town with my Flat 6 roomies. We liked to put Nutella on everything. Please, you're breaking Nutella's heart. Go get some already!
Using the guidance from All Things Considered blog, I started tackling these crepes. I began mixing the ingredients and things began going smoothly. I was concerned that the batter was rather juicy, but I thought.."hey! it's a really thin pancake so the batter must be like this..."
As you can see in my picture, I have these neat canisters that hold my sugar, flour, and powdered sugar. At the time, I didn't think anything of it. I just began scooping a white powdery substance into my mixing bowl thinking it was FLOUR. Hours later, I realized it was powdered sugar. No wonder things were not working and my creation looked like this.... TWICE. I even made the batter AGAIN using a different recipe! I made the same mistake twice in a row. Somewhere, Martha Stewart is shaking her head.

I grabbed some tortillas from the fridge and buttered them up. I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them and tossed them in the frying pan. After a minute or so I poured Nutella in the middle. (It wasn't this glamorous. My description of this experience is far more exciting) The end product was a delicious Nutella treat. I dare you to try it! C'mon, make Nutella proud!

Ever since our family vacation to Italy, my dad has me hooked on caprese salads. It's true! I love the tomato, mozz, and vinaigrette dressing.
|gotta love him!|
Let Birds Fly has a super simple and yummy recipe for an Apple Caprese Salad. After 2+ hours messing with crepes, I experienced instant gratification with this recipe.
You're probably wondering where the basil leaves are. I am too! I couldn't find them at Hyvee.... can somebody help a sister out? They were M.I.A.
If you're a fan of caprese salad... you'll definitely enjoy this one.
