I can’t imagine a world without Nutella. I love it. My kids love it. Heck, even my Grandma loves it. But I do not understand how people eat it as a sandwich for lunch. Guys, it’s not lunch. There’s really nothing nutritional about a plain piece of bread with Nutella on it. Wait, peanut butter and jam is pretty much the same thing isn’t it. Dang. Well, I still feel guilty eating it for lunch. I do not however feel guilty about eating it for dessert. Like these Nutella Strawberry Taquitos.

They are fried, rolled in gobs of cinnamon sugar and eaten with a big ol’ scoop of ice cream. It kind of tastes like a chocolate strawberry fried ice cream thingy. Mmmmm, fried ice cream. I wish that wasn’t such a hassle to make because boy is it delicious. And yes, I did let the girls eat these as soon as they came home from school, but it was past lunch so technically it was ok to do.

  • Hello there! I actually just found you through Instagram when searching for fellow Hyperemesis mommies. Anyway, I just read through a ton of your posts, including your most recent one about slowly feeling better, and you have really helped me on a day that I needed it. I am 8 weeks with my second baby. Nobody truly understands HG unless you or your loved one suffered from it so I just wanted to say thank you for bringing awareness to such a debilitating condition!!! Thank you for staying positive when it is the hardest thing to do. And thank you for sharing your world and struggle with the rest of us. You have found a blog follower in me! Not to mention, when I can finally stand to swallow a bite of food or drink, I will be hitting up these scrumptious recipes weekly, I am sure!!
