Today is Sunday - dark and cloudy day.  Managed to go for a short walk this morning and a longer one this afternoon.  I also tried this today:
Didn't have a kettlebell - but used a 5 pound weight.  Oh my - my thighs hurt right now!!

Since I worked out - I could bake!! :)

Wow they look delicious. You are braver than I am to try Jillian Kichaels video. I really need to start working out again though!!

Oh holy 'all that is good in the world' yummy! Love the cupcake liners too. You do such a good job with photographing food. While playing with my off camera flash this afternoon, I attempted some cookie pictures --- all I heard from the peanut gallery was 'what on earth are you taking pictures of in the kitchen?' --err!

Beth said...

Wow, those cupcake lines are super cute :) I have never tried Nutella but it sounds yummy here!

Maria said...

It's been years since I've tasted Nutella. I think I need to try it again, and this recipe seems like the perfect way to do it.

Love the cupcake liners! Great for Halloween or for a kid's Pirate Party!

Amy said...

WOW...those look YUMMY! I think I might try them this week.

Oh, gosh, I've had such ADHD with your blog today! I keep coming back to comment on it, but then detour to the cool links you included. These links are wonderful, Celine! They're so much fun to wander through, and Nicki is right--you do a great job with your food photography.

Read it, copied it, baked 'em topped with pecan half - no chocolate - took 15 minutes. Cooled and currently enjoying with a tall glass of milk - wonderful! Fastest cupcake in the world!

These look delicious and I love that they use require 4 simple ingredients! In my experience, recipes that include Nutella tend mask the flavor more than I'd prefer, but this just might be the recipe to satisfy my hankering for delicious Nutella baked goods!

I am currently in the process of baking these yummy looking mini cakes! I'm very excited about tasting them. My dad loves Nutella just like I do so we can't wait to taste them. they will be a great dessert to end our Chinese themed supper tonight. I'm glad you posted this simple, easy recipe and that I was able to stumble upon it.
