So, I have a confession to make. I am completely addicted to Stumble Upon. If you use it, you know what I’m talking about. Right? RIGHT? If you’ve never used it, go sign up and be prepared to watch the hours go ticking by. It’s kind of like Pinterest for websites. Which, by the way, is my other major weakness. Ok, let’s get back to the point before I abandon this post to go Stumble or Pin something.
I was “stumbling” the other night and came across my friend Miss’ blog Miss in the Kitchen. I usually stop by her blog and comment on her posts and for whatever reason I didn’t notice the post for Cinnamon Nutella Hot Cocoa. Maybe the moon and sun were in a strange pattern of waxing or waning, or maybe I’m just making this up to make myself feel better for totally missing this amazing post. Whichever it is, I managed to “stumble” on it yesterday and basically read the post, put down my iPad and promptly went to the kitchen. The kids were stoked that the Nutella was coming out of the cupboard, the Hubs was open to the idea of adding some espresso to the cocoa and I was making it as fast as I could so I could savor….every….sip!
Go stop by and say HI to Miss and tell her I sent ya. She’s a sweetie and has some amazing recipes on her blog!! So, should we make some coffee??
