Guest Post on Bella Nutella: Nutella Panini with Apple & Walnuts

Guess what today is? Nutella day!!!

Do you love Nutella? I do!

Know who else loves Nutella? My friend Paula! Paula and I met during the Pomegranate Trip. She's funny, talented, beautiful, and carries individual packages of Nutella with her wherever she goes. What's not to like?


When Paula asked me to do a guest blog post for Bella Nutella, I said YES!

Here's my little story:

I don’t remember the first time I tasted Nutella, but it must have been sometime after my family moved from Russia to the USA. This means I was deprived of Nutella for the first thirteen years of my life. Somehow I’m going to have to forgive my parents for this.
Since then, I’ve enjoyed Nutella in the US, and while on vacation in such places as Puerto Rico and France. One of my favorite moments of my trip February trip to Paris {years ago} was eating a Nutella-filled crepe from a street cart; it was the best treat during the cold winter month.


One of my friends asked me how I eat Nutella. I was dumbfounded: what kind of a question is that?
I eat Nutella on a spoon (straight up!), spread on bread, or with slices of apples or oranges: the possibilities are endless. 
I love spreading Nutella on white bread, and adding thin slices of a Granny Smith apple and toasted walnuts.


But for Paula, I had to step it up a notch. I used the same ingredients, but turned them into a Nutella Panini with Granny Smith Apples and Toasted Walnuts! Go check out the recipe on Bella Nutella!

How do YOU like to eat Nutella?

Great idea. I like the combination of sweet and slightly salty.
