Hidden Treasures

I'm deep in research mode right now and finding lots of cool info. Little did I know that the region of Piemonte, Italy, (where my great-grandparents are from and where my next novel is set) is the birthplace of Nutella. The region also supplies the yummy hazelnuts used in this divine spread. And little did I know how great Nutella tastes!

My local Walgreens on the corner had a jar of this yummy, creamy stuff, so I decided to try it. Oh. My. Goodness. Wunderbar, though I will have to watch my intake so I don't gain any more weight!

I love all the little facts and hidden treasures I'm finding about the region where my great-grandparents used to live. So much fun!

Hmm...I think my main character might just have a thing for Nutella...


  1. Nutella is the best! We used to eat it in Holland before it became available here. Totally addicting though.

  2. I adore Nutella! We used to it instead of peanut butter until I started noticing how much weight I was gaining. So I had to stop. I won't even let a jar in the house for fear I'll start spreading it on everything. I love putting them on croissants, bagels, crackers, my hand, etc.

  3. I've been eating Nutella since my first trip to Europe in the 1970s. I absolutely love it.


I love to hear from you!
