Some people watch the news or read a book before going to sleep…I watch YouTube videos.  I look forward to crawling under my fluffy down comforter with my iPad at the end of a long day to see what my favorite YouTubers have uploaded.  As I was compiling my list of people/channels, I realize that…

Nutella Croissant Bread

Nutella Croissant Bread

Gooey Nutella with flakey croissant dough.  Stop that. Instead of microwaving the Nutella, I set it into a bowl of hot water while I got everything ready.  The label on the jar says ‘Do not microwave’ and I like to follow the rulez. I got over my fear of popping open tubes today.  That noise!…
