Chocolate Nutella Cookies

I found another Nutella recipe that was calling my name.  Probably because it was so easy to whip up and I already had the ingredients in my cupboard. It was just one of those days! When you have one of those days, there’s nothing like chocolate to make it all better. I wonder if the Italians have as many Nutella recipes as us.  We sure do love their Nutella over here in the U.S. Enjoy!











Greek Tortellini Salad

Greek Tortellini Salad

Greek salad is made with tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, onion, feta cheese, and olives, typically seasoned with oregano and dressed with olive oil.

These ingredients are my favorite in a salad, especially the feta cheese – very delicious! It’s so easy to make up different styles of salads with these basic ingredients and cheese tortellini is the perfect combination in my opinion. I LOVE pasta, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with adding it to the common Greek salad.  Enjoy!

Swiss Ham and Potato Soup

Swiss Ham and Potato Soup

There’s nothing like creamy potato soup and this recipe is probably one of my favourite creamy soups. It has such simple ingredients I’m quite amazed at just how flavourful it is. You can easily add bacon or even ham (like I did to use up left over ham from Easter).  I used regular Swiss slices of cheese to melt into this soup but it’s more common in Switzerland to use the original Emmental cheese from Emmental, Switzerland of course!

Traditional Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns

Growing up, our mum would always bake Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday. So did just about every family in England. It’s been a tradition since the 12th century when a monk was the first person to mark the bun with a cross. It soon spread across England and became a symbol of the Easter weekend.
